Parable of the Fig Tree: Jesus On Knowing If He’s Coming Now or Later

By Tim McHyde / June 3, 2011

Can you know if Jesus is coming now or not, without knowing the date? Most don’t think so because they miss that Jesus in his own words instructed us on how with his Parable of the Fig tree. Unfortunately, the parable is commonly misread as a prophecy referring to major events in the history of modern Israel one “generation” away from Christ’s return, supposedly allowing you to calculate the second coming date. But does “this generation” refer to Jesus’ first century audience or maybe to our generation, the “last generation?” Discover the real meaning of the parable and the key to discerning where we are in Bible prophecy that it plainly teaches when you let it.

The Abomination of Desolation Identified At Last (By 7 Clues)

By Tim McHyde / July 1, 2006
