'curse' doesnt mean hate. It wasnt a hateful or malicious act. Read below: Why did Jesus curse the fig tree, when figs weren't in season? Some light is shed on this passage by an article in Hard Sayings of the Bible by F. F. Bruce:
Was it not unreasonable to curse the tree for being fruitless when, as Mark expressly says, "it was not the season for figs"? The problem is most satisfactorily cleared up in a discussion called "The Barren Fig Tree" published many years ago by W. M. Christie, a Church of Scotland minister in Palestine under the British mandatory regime. He pointed out first the time of year at which the incident is said to have occurred (if, as is probable, Jesus was crucified on April 6th, A.D. 30, the incident occurred during the first days of April). "Now," wrote Christie, "the facts connected with the fig tree are these. Toward the end of March the leaves begin to appear, and in about a week the foliage coating is complete. Coincident with [this], and sometimes even before, there appears quite a crop of small knobs, not the real figs, but a kind of early forerunner. They grown to the size of green almonds, in which condition they are eaten by peasants and others when hungry. When they come to their own indefinite maturity they drop off." These precursors of the true fig are called taqsh in Palestinian Arabic. Their appearance is a harbinger of the fully formed appearance of the true fig some six weeks later. So, as Mark says, the time for figs had not yet come. But if the leaves appear without any taqsh, that is a sign that there will be no figs. Since Jesus found "nothing but leaves" - leaves without any taqsh- he knew that "it was an absolutely hopeless, fruitless fig tree" and said as much.
Because it dared to not have figs out of season. Such insolence shall not be tolerated in the eyes of the lord! He should have sent bears to rip it to shreds. (or is that action reserved for children only?) Alternate explaination: Jesus visited the mushrooms before the fig tree.
The Parable of the Fig Tree -- Matthew 21:18-22 Mark 11:12-14/19-25 Jesus cursed the Fig tree because it bore no fruit -- the same as those who would not listen to him and chose to sin and be homosexuals - just like the tree they neither would bear fruit -- Jesus was warning them that if they and other sinners continued in their ways that He would not hesitate to bring His Wrath down and destruction upon them and it is coming and real soon and like Forrest Gump this is all i have to say about that .
The act is a metaphor. Israel is often called a fig tree. The barren nature of Israel , its lack of spiritual fruit, will result in it's destruction. This was fulfilled in 70 AD when Titus destroyed Jerusalem.
