Curse of the Barren Fig Tree

Having a Fig Leaf of Religion Will Not Produce the Fruit of Righteousness

In our series on the Miracles of Jesus we’ve seen His compassion and His power. He has given sight to the blind, healed the sick, cast out demons and even raised the dead. But this miracle is completely unique from the other miracles of Jesus in that, this is the only miracle of destruction that Jesus preformed recorded in the Gospels.
And since it is the only miracle of destruction––it would help us to find out why (Mark 11:12–24).

In this lesson we ask several questions: Why did Jesus expect fruit on a barren fig tree? Why did Jesus curse the fig tree? And why did Jesus then run the money changers and sellers out of the temple? Are these back to back events related?
