Matthew 24:34 Fig Tree Generation

In some parts of Israel, depending on climate and conditions, it was also possible that a tree might produce fruit ten out of twelve months. This also explains why Jesus and His disciples would be looking for fruit on the fig tree even if it was not in the main growing season. Figs are self-fruitful, so you need only one plant to produce fruit. Choose early, mid and late-fruiting selections to extend your harvest from summer into early fall. Some figs will produce bonus fruit early in the season, called a “breba” crop and the main crop.

This highly adaptable fig tree works even in containers, provided you protect it in winter. According to Smith’s Bible Dictionary, the fig tree was very common to the area both in Biblical times and still today. And it was common knowledge in Jesus’ time that if you saw leaves on a fig tree, you could also expect fruit unless the tree was barren. One first would have to understand what the Fig Tree prophecy Lord Jesus gave…

I know that I will be one of them, you may be one of them also. Jesus actually stated, in his Olivet Discourse, that the same generation as his apostles would see the destruction of the temple, stone by stone. That is, in my opinion, beyond dispute (although I’m sure some would still like to dispute it). Though this is interesting, there is no prophecy stating that the 2nd Coming would take place in the same generation that Israel is restored to statehood! That would be a false prophecy, since Israel became a state in 1948 and it is now past the length of a generation.

The Parable of the Fig Tree(A)

But the dresser of the vineyard said to give it one moreyear, and he would fertilize it to see if any fruit would be produced. He awaits the repentance of the erring one and his return to the right path. That is one of at least two verses that discuss the length of a man’s days . It isn’t a reference to the length of a generation, which is the time between the birth of one person and the birth of that person’s child.

The fruit of the fig tree generally appears before the leaves, and, because the fruit is green it blends in with the leaves right up until it is almost ripe. Also, each tree would often produce two to three crops of figs each season. There would be an early crop in the spring followed by one or two later crops.

Symbolism and Context of the Cursed Fig Tree

I did say that breaking free becomes so much more difficult once one falls into that trap. Many feel the anxiety of the stress from cognitive dissonance, but can’t name what is causing that stress or is too deep into ignorance. Cognitive Dissonance is when a person holds two or more contradictory ideas or values at the same time, creating stress. Often times the item creating the dissonance is something that holds great investment, so to break with it would cause major loss. This site is just a smattering of links and articles of interest pertaining to the End Times and Christianity with maybe a blog from me on certain topics as well.

Inside is amber flesh that’s sweet and juicy when the fruit is ripe. Some like the Yellow Long Neck are petite, only 4 to 8 feet. This article is part of our larger resource library of popular Bible parables. We want to provide easy to read articles that answer your questions about the meaning, origin, and history of parables within Scripture.

The figs have purplish-bronze skin and red-pinkish flesh when cut open. It’s a cold-hardy tree species that does well even with minimal sunlight in colder regions. Jesus used everyday examples and parables to relate His messages about our spiritual lives to everyday experiences and things listeners would understand.

With His death, Jesus made this reconciliation permanent, and the temple would wither away with no purpose under the weight of a mighty empire. The fig tree symbolized this moment in Israel’s history, as well as its past. The fig tree bore leaves too early in the season, but could not, or would not, bear fruit in kind. This is much like how Israel would go through periods of fruitlessness, and much like believers go through seasons of fruitlessness in their spiritual lives. First, you can press the button on the duet to find your phone. I think that there is just a finite way of making money.

The growing roots twine around the host tree, and ultimately they engulf, strangle, and replace it. Looking at a mature fig, with its smooth trunk hurtling toward the sky, one would never know it conceals the ghost of the tree that supported it as a seedling. After the females leave the fig, they must find another fig tree with receptive fruits in which to lay their eggs. Following trace chemical signals in the air, they often fly more than six miles, and on rare occasion more than 100. Once a female finds a likely fig, she wriggles in through a tiny opening that, because fig and wasp have evolved together, is just large enough for her head. She proceeds to pop her eggs in about half the available ovules, dusting the rest with the pollen she brought with her.

Also, add mulch around the roots, like hay, grasses, or wood chips. Although the text shows that “it was not the time of the fig tree,” seeing a fig tree by the road, Jesus went up expecting fruits but found nothing on the fig tree except leaves. 19And when he saw a fig tree in the way, he came to it, and found nothing thereon, but leaves only, and said unto it, Let no fruit grow on thee henceforward for ever. The tree has just undergone a winter season leaving it empty of fruit. Yet even during the cold hostility of a world raging against God, the tree had some untimely figs that succumbed to persecution. Linking the rebudding of the tree to 1948 was at one time a very popular interpretation.

But much of the forest canopy is spread out below, a sweeping green expanse of trees, lianas, and their inhabitants. One hears birds and insects, distant whoops and unidentifiable descending notes. The wind rocks the scaffold just a bit and, in the heat of the late morning, one feels dozily as if one is rolling on a small boat. So, now that I’ve read the Bible several times over, I don’t agree with Hal Lindsey’s take. The fig tree is NOT a symbol for the birth of Israel, 1948.

For a proper interpretation of the fig tree parable in the Olivet Discourse, we need not abandon our earlier interpretation of the fig tree. It truly died in AD 70 as a result of divine judgment, and it truly was reborn in 1948, when the state of Israel reappeared on the world scene. But it has not put out the new buds that Jesus was foreseeing in His parable of the fig tree. A fig tree produces masses of large green leaves and gives ample welcome shade in a hot country. This is the reason one finds a fig planted next to a well. A fully mature LSU Gold can reach heights of up to 15 feet with a hardiness zone topping 11.

These conditions make it possible to get large figs that are quite fleshy with a yellow-green skin. Inside the flesh is rosy red or pinkish with a sweet flavor. It won’t do well in cold areas since its hardiness is 15 to 20°F. It only grows to a mature height of 12 feet and suits a backyard or container. This is an easy-going fig tree whose fruit has versatile use, including preservation. As a cold-hardy tree, you can plant it in areas with a hardiness zone of 7 to 9 and get a mature spread of 12 to 20 feet.
