The cursing of the fig tree and judgment upon the temple

Adobe Acrobat

After the king rode into Jerusalem to receive his kingdom (through the cross), he first visited his kingdom to see its condition. Jesus is a king who visits and judges his people. He comes looks for fruit. When Jesus cursed the fig tree and purged the temple, he was giving the people a lesson and a warning. To his disciples it seemed incredible that they could hope for the opposition to Jesus' kingdom that came from the kingdom to wither and die - yet Jesus taught them that even mountains can be removed. This passage contains vital lessons for every follower of Jesus.
