Mark 11:14

11:14 May no one ever eat fruit from you again. Jesus curses this tree for making a display but having no fruit, just as He will judge the temple (vv. 15–17) and predict its destruction (13:2). This would indicate that the rebuilding of the temple in Jerusalem will no longer be a goal of redemptive history. Jeremiah used figs as a symbol of judgment on Jerusalem (Jer. 24).
