This parable was told by Jesus Christ and in the New Testament is found in Matthew Matthew 24:32-35, Mark Mark 13:28-31, and Luke Luke 21:29-33. This parable, about the Kingdom of God, involves a fig tree, as does the equally brief parable of the barren fig tree, with which it should not be confused. Luke presents this parable as eschatological in nature: like the leaves of the fig tree, the signs spoken of in the Olivet discourse of Luke 21:5-28 indicate the coming of the Kingdom of God.
