The Death of the Cursed Fig Tree

Mark 11:12-14

Miracle 22: The Sacred Geometry Story

Part 1: Jesus casts a curse on a Fig-tree: When Jesus and the disciples walked down from Bethany back into Jerusalem, he hungered (epeinasen). The gematria diagram of this one Greek word on Jesus going into Jerusalem is the key to the curse. He saw a fig-tree in the distance having leaves. He came to see if there was something in it. Having come he found there was nothing but leaves because it was not the season of figs. In verse 11:14a Jesus says this curse to the figtree: "No longer into 'the age' (eternity) from you, no one fruit may eat!" The diagram shows why Jesus was hungry when he made this curse! All the disciples were listening to what he said. After they entered Jerusalem, Jesus entered the Temple to cast out the buyers and sellers saying they made it a den of thieves. The chief priests and scribes listened and looked how they might kill him. When evening came they walked back up to Bethany.

Part 2: The Death of the Cursed Tree: the next day, early in the morning on their way down to Jerusalem, they passed by the fig-tree at dawn and saw it was dead, withered from its roots. Simon the Stone said to Jesus, Rabbi look, the fig-tree you cursed has dried out! Jesus said to them, "Have belief of God."
