Well, when you read in Isaiah (I forgot which scripture) it lists a fig tree as one of the good trees...it's fruitful. I'll come back with the scripture in a minute.

Oh forgive me D...it wasn't fig, it was "fir". Nevertheless, a fig tree IS a fruitful tree.

Proverbs 27:18 (New International Version)

18 He who tends a fig tree will eat its fruit,
and he who looks after his master will be honored.

Fig Tree

Post by str82heart on Mon Jul 06, 2009 2:24 pm

This is what came to my mind: Matthew 21:21: Jesus replied, "I tell you the truth, if you have faith and do not doubt, not only can you do what was done to the fig tree, but also you can say to this mountain, 'Go, throw yourself into the sea,' and it will be done."

Also, other references are: Matthew 24:32; Mark 11:13; Mark 13:28: Luke 13:26 and James 3:12.

I hope these are helpful.

Be blessed!

If I am not mistaken I think the fig tree has also been used in the bible to represent Israel or the end times in some way. thinking

Adam and eve used fig leaves to hide from God. Perhaps it means shame or your keeping something from God your ashamed about

Yeah I am thinking that it represents Isreal or the nation of Isreal. I can't remember the exact scripture, sorry.

Love in Jesus,

The fig is a modest tree, low and spreading, with irregular, ungraceful branches. The leaves are large, dark-green, deeply lobed. A marked peculiarity of the tree is that it bears fruit without visible flowers. A little flower-stalk appears, but instead of blossoming at its tip, it is hollow and bears the little flowers on the inside of its tube. The stem swells, grows soft, and becomes a fig. The fig-tree not only bears fruit without visible blossoms, but begins to form its first crop of figs before the leaves appear. The fruit is sweet and nourishing, very full of seeds, and possessing soothing, healing powers. (2 Kings xx. 7; Isa. xxxviii. 21; AE 403)

What is the meaning of the fact that the figs are borne without visible blossoms, and even before the leaves? Leaves are the intelligent thought preparatory to the use which is represented by the fruit. Flowers are the special thoughts connected with each good work, including the happiest of all thoughts, that we are helping to accomplish some purpose of the Lord's love and wisdom. The natural kind works which the figs represent are done without these leaves and flowers, with little forethought or discretion; all in the inside without waiting for retribution just the pure nature inside your heart.

Once more, contrasting the fig with the olive, why has the olive one large seed and the fig many little seeds? The many seeds suggest the contagiousness of natural kindness; one kind work calls forth a thousand more. But does not the single seed point to the single principle that God is good, from which the spiritual olive grows, while the many seeds of the fig suggest the thousand forms in which the duty of natural kindness appeals to us in the varied relations of life?
The fig-tree evidently corresponds to a knowledge of good, sweet works of kindness.
