What lesson do you think Jesus taught the disciples by cursing the fig tree?
Jesus was teaching them 2 main lessons: The first lesson was on Faith.That it was possible to do all things including controlling the things of nature-mountains, fig trees -seemily-impossible things to do.All one needed was faith. The second lesson was that those who failed to produce''fruit'', were cursed and would die just like the fig tree.We are all called to serve the lord, and failure to do this means we would be spiritually dead.

What lesson do you think Jesus taught the disciples by cursing the fig tree?
Jesus wants the disciples to know that if only they believe all things are possible to them that believes. This message is not for the disciple salone, but to everyone that believe on the LORD JESUS CHRIST; also Jesus thought us that there is no problem that is unsolvable, no matter the kinds, no matter how great is that problems if only we believe it will be solved; praise the LORD! I also learned that it is not how long you pray, but how well i.e do you believe what you ask for; your faith matter most.

What lesson do you think Jesus taught the disciples by cursing the fig tree?
to have faith in what we do and say or ask. we have to have genuine faith 100%. I also belive he showed us that the earth was created for us, and that we can change earthly problems by beliving and having genuine faith. it is the quality of faith that is the key not the amount. Matt 17:20 '' mustard seed ''

I think the lesson taught by Jesus about the fig tree is having no doubt to God and having a strong faith no matter how dofficult to face your obstacles and sufferings in life.=''

What lesson do you think Jesus taught the disciples by cursing the fig tree?
He wants us to alwasy have faith and stay with him and believe and we will be fruitful in the Lord but if he comes to us and we have no faith then we may never have the true faith that is being offered to us by Jesus.

What lesson do you think Jesus taught the disciples by cursing the fig tree?
It is the faith lesson, of course, but it`s also the infructuous fig lesson. If the fig didn`t had any fruits when Jesus asked for a fruit, then it will never have at all. The time of the crops is not when we think it is, at the right season, it is at the moment Jesus demands it.

What lesson do you think Jesus taught the disciples by cursing the fig tree?
I think He was showing them that miracles would follow...and faith and prayer are key disciplines needed. I also think there is a lesson in there about being fruitless...not doing what God wants us to....

Jesus simply meant that anything that was created to bring forth fruit and does not, is of no use.

The Fig Tree Withers

Now in the morning, as he returned to the city, he was hungry. Seeing a fig tree by the road, he came to it, and found nothing on it but leaves. He said to it, "Let there be no fruit from you forever!"
Immediately the fig tree withered away. When the disciples saw it, they marveled, saying, "How did the fig tree immediately wither away?"
Jesus answered them, "Most certainly I tell you, if you have faith, and don't doubt, you will not only do what was done to the fig tree, but even if you told this mountain, 'Be taken up and cast into the sea,' it would be done. All things, whatever you ask in prayer, believing, you will receive."

Matthew 21:18-22
