Jesus and the fig tree
The story of Jesus and the fig tree appears in the New Testament of the Bible, in Matthew 21:17-22 and Mark 11:12-14, 20-26 . In this story, Jesus is hungry and goes up to a fig tree to get something to eat, even though figs are out of season. When he finds that the tree has no fruit, he becomes angry and curses the tree to death.
Some may draw a parallel between this story and that of original sin, where God blames people for acting in ways that were seemingly designed into them.
The story of the fig tree differs between versions, Matthew 21:19 says that "And presently the fig tree withered away." Whereas Mark 11:20 has the disciples find the dried up tree the following morning: "And in the morning, as they passed by, they saw the fig tree dried up from the roots." -- Beyond being odd, the story is contradictory.
