Mark 13:28

13:28 fig tree. There does not seem to be any specific symbolic sense to this “fig tree” (such as the re-emergence of the nation of Israel), especially since the parallel passage (Luke 21:29) adds “and all the trees.” Jesus is simply saying that just as there are signs of what is to come in the natural realm, so it is in the spiritual.
