Mark 11, 12-26
-He was hungry.
-The Tree was not in season for figs.
-Jesus had a “reply” to what? The tree’s statement that it had no fruit for Him? … to Peter for
a question or statement that was not included in the text?
-His “reply” seemed to be to the tree and it was a “curse”?
-Why would Jesus “curse” a tree that is not in season? What don’t I know about this specific tree? What is contained in the New Testament that gives me understanding?
-Did Jesus know that they walk by the same tree in a day or so? That a withered tree would provide learning for Peter?
-How is the teaching of Jesus really applicable to the tree’s death?
-How would it have been different if he had simply spoke to the tree and said “Bear Fruit”? and had the same conversation with Peter in Mark 11, 22-26?
-Is this passage one that shows us his true humanity? He was hungry and didn’t like that the tree had no figs?
I am hungry for understanding and not liking where my logic is going.
