Audio: Jesus Curses a Fig Tree

“On the following day, when they came from Bethany, he was hungry. And seeing in the distance a fig tree in leaf, he went to see if he could find anything on it. When he came to it, he found nothing but leaves, for it was not the season for figs. And he said to it, “May no one ever eat fruit from you again.” And his disciples heard it.” Mark 11:12-14 ESV

In Mark 11 we are presented with a very curious scene… because of its lack of fruit the Lord Jesus Christ curses a fig tree. How strange! The next day His disciples noticed that the fig tree had, in fact, withered.

Why would the Lord Jesus do such a thing? What is the lesson? If you dig deeper into the passage I believe you will discover a very important lesson regarding fruitfulness.
