Our fruitfulness, our barrenness, our production of the wild poison fruit, all take place beneath his watchful but patient eye. Where is the ceaseless inward power that transmutes all that reaches it into luxuriant growths of new and pleasant services, the silent sustained mastery that, come good, come evil, takes it all, and changes it into crop after crop in due season of help for others, life by which others may live?

And. “Not only is it unfruitful, but it draws away the juices which the vines would extract from the earth, intercepts the sun, and occupies room” (Bengel). One of the greatest temptations for me has to do with cars, horsepower, and speed. 1:—, And he said to the vineyard-keeper, ‘Behold, for three years I have come looking for fruit on this fig tree without finding any. It means the bait-stick of a trap, that which triggers off trouble (the corresponding verb is found in 7:23). 1. ; and this may be the reason why this number is fixed upon; for if such fig trees do not bring forth ripe fruit in three years time, there is little reason to expect any from them: and thus it was time after time with the Jewish nation; and so it is with carnal professors: hence it follows.

And walking in the fear of the Lord and in the comfort of the Holy Spirit, it multiplied. “And he said to the vinedresser, Behold, these three years I have come seeking fruit on this fig tree, and have found none. seeking fruit on this fig tree, and find none: cut it down; why cumbereth it the ground?

Behold, these three years I come— See how long I have waited, even three years past, in vain, and still this fig-tree is entirely barren: cut it down; why should it any longer take up the place of better plants, and draw away the fructifying juices of my ground, which might be profitable to other trees? 6-9 This parable of the barren fig-tree is intended to enforce the warning given just before: the barren tree, except it brings forth fruit, will be cut down. Rain and frost and wind and sun touch it each with a power of their own, be it in hate or love; but no sooner do they touch it than the life within seizes on the power, masters it, changes it, gives it a new nature, makes it part of a new life, and to take strange new forms of bud and leaf and flower and fruit.

Why is it allowed to impoverish the soil, and interfere with the other products of the vineyard. Why does it also act as a burden on the ground?”. Act 9:31 - So the church throughout all Judea and Galilee and Samaria had peace and was being built up. Hear the word of the Lord, as given to us through the Gospel of Luke, chapter 14, verse 1, then skipping to verses 7 through 14. (7) Why cumbereth it the ground?—The Greek verb means more than that the fig-tree was what we call a useless burden or incumbrance, and implies positive injury. or "that it may not cumber"; or "render the ground useless", as read the Arabic version, and one of Beza's copies; for unfruitful trees suck up the juices of the earth, and draw away nourishment from other trees that are near them, and so make the earth barren, and not only hurt other trees, but stand in the way and place of fruitful ones; and therefore it is best to cut them down. By Pastor Vince Gerhardy Another year has almost gone and we are on the brink of another! Luke 13:7. 8 And he answering said unto him, Lord, let it alone this year also, till I shall dig about it, and dung it: 9 And if it bear fruit, well: and if not, then after that thou shalt cut it down.

These trees bear fruit once in three years; they bear fruit indeed every year, but their fruit does not come to maturity till after three yearsF9T. Likewise, a failure to repent and live for God will show a lack of fruit, equally evident. On the other end of the synagogue healing is another parable, about how God’s kingdom grows (i.e., mustard seed and yeast) … Why does it even use up the ground? The scale and proximity of those tragedies will make them easily recalled in a congregation’s minds, when people hear Luke 13:1-9 read in worship. It is commonly rendered by “bring to nought,” or some like phrase. The planted tree would ordinarily bear within three years. Has it ornamented you, and budded into a growth of leaves fair to look on? Behold, these three years I come — See how long I have waited, even three years past, in vain, and still this fig-tree is entirely barren: cut it down; why should it any longer take up the place of better plants, and draw away the fructifying juices of my ground, which might be profitable to other trees? Behold these three years - From this circumstance in the parable, it may be reasonably concluded that Jesus had been, at the time of saying this, exercising his ministry for three years past; and, from what is said in Luke 13:8, of letting it alone this year also, it may be concluded likewise that this parable was spoken about a year before Christ's crucifixion; and, if both these conclusions are reasonable, we may thence infer that this parable was not spoken at the time which appears to be assigned to it, and that the whole time of Christ's public ministry was about four years. dresser of vineyard. Vine-dresser. - The word “cumber” here means to render “barren” or “sterile.” By taking up the juices of the earth, this useless tree rendered the ground sterile, and prevented the growth of the neighboring vines. Repent or Perish. 5.The dresser was perhaps intended to denote the Saviour and the other messengers of God, pleading that God would spare the Jews, and save them from their enemies that stood ready to destroy them, as soon as God should permit. Some think Christ here refers to the three years of his public ministry, which he had now gone through among the Jews with little success; but he seems rather to allude to the nature of fig trees, which, if fruitful, bear in three years time; for even בנות שוח, "a sort of white figs", which are the longest before they bring forth fruit to perfection, yet their fruit is ripe in three years time. three years — a long enough trial for a fig tree, and so denoting probably just a sufficient period of culture for spiritual fruit. ‘Three years are the time of a full trial, at the end of which the inference of incurable sterility may be drawn.’ (Godet) Some refer this to the three years of our Lord’s ministry, now so nearly ended. —Renders the ground barren, absorbing the virtue of the soil only. Luke 13:7. ἀμπελουργόν, the vine-dresser (ἄμπελος, ἔργον) here only in N.T.— ἰδοὺ, lo! Tried by this test, are you fit to live?
