Matthew 21:20-22 The Passion Translation (TPT)

20 Astonished, his disciples asked, “How did you make this fig tree instantly wither and die?”

21 Jesus replied, “Listen to the truth. If you have no doubt of God’s power and speak out of faith’s fullness, you can be the ones who speak to a tree and it will wither away. Even more than that, you could say to this mountain, ‘Be lifted up and be thrown into the sea’ and it will be done.[a] 22 Everything you pray for with the fullness of faith you will receive!”[b]


  1. Matthew 21:21 The mountain and the sea are both metaphors. Mountains speak of kingdoms, and the sea represents the nations (e.g., “sea of humanity”). Faith brings the reality of the kingdom realm into the nations.
  2. Matthew 21:22 Jesus taught his disciples that if faith’s fullness lived in them, they could speak to the physical creation around them and it would respond. Faith unlocks great authority for the believer.
