interesting Gospel reading – Christ and the fig tree, Christ responding to persons desecrating the temple and Christ’s reaffirmation of the supremacy of faith.
For the encounter with the fig tree, read the importance of bearing fruits in the seasons of life.
For the clash in the temple, read as a critique and condemnation of the commercialisation of religion and religious spaces
And the last section of the gospel deals with the importance and necessity of faith. it affirms the empowerment and transformational role that faith can play in our lives.
