    fig

    The tree is leafless in winter but puts out buds in February; leaves appear in April. Jesus' expression of disappointment at finding no figs (Mark 11: 12, 13, 20 f.) and his subsequent condemnation of the tree must be regarded as symbolic of a disillusionment with Israel. This is apparent from Mark's placing the Cleansing of the Temple and Jesus' clash with the leaders between two parts of the barren fig tree narrative. Judaism is guilty; it could not tolerate the coming of its Messiah.
