Jesus Wasn’t Perfect

Now in the morning as he returned into the city, he hungered.
And when he saw a fig tree in the way, he came to it and found nothing theron, but leaves only, and said unto it, “Let no fruit grow on thee henceforward for ever.” And presently the fig tree withered away. Matthew 21:19-20
He kills a fig tree just because it didn’t have figs when he wanted some? Fig trees don’t give fruit all the time so it was probably a perfectly fine and productive tree but even if the tree should have had fruit at that time, killing it simply because he was hungry is hardly a quality I would associate with perfection. Oh, and if you think I’m taking this out of context, by all means check it out. He goes on to tell his disciples that if they have faith “all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive” including casting mountains into the sea.

  1. Wow. That’s downright vindictive. It’s almost like whoever wrote Matthew was trying to make him look like a real dick.
