Topic of the Week   (Tubah 18-24)
The Fig Tree Withers

Verse of the Week
"And seeing a fig tree by the road, He came to it and found nothing on it but leaves, and said to it, 'Let no fruit grow on you ever again.' Immediately the fig tree withered away."

- Matthew 21:19

Meaning: The fig tree, a symbol of prosperity and peace, withers because of its fruitlessness. This is a prophetic act, for after three years of preaching, teaching and healing, the Jews are destitute of spiritual fruit; therefore, He withers them with His reproach. He curses the tree to warn of the curse on those who will crucify Him. He submits Himself willingly to the Cross; He is the Suffering Servant who yields to their torture.


Proverb of the Week
"The righteous man walks in his integrity; his children are blessed after him."
