My thought is that the generation of the fig tree has to do with the story about Christ seeing a fig tree that had born no fruit. He said that trees that bore no fruit should be cursed for being barren. So He cursed that fig tree. The next time, the apostles went by that place, the tree was dead.
Christ is referring to that generation of people, or groups of people, like those in certain churches, who do not carry the gospel message outside of their walls. As a result they have no disciples or new believers or lovers of Jesus or His Word in their midst to continue his teachers into the future. These people will be cursed either on the day of Judgement for eternity or that generation or the next will lose the blessings in this life, that were derived for them, by the generations before them, who believed in God and followed God's expectations for their lives.
Our society, at least in America, is fast becoming such a generation.
I could look up the verses, but so can you.
I have been reading about Christ's return and the generation of the fig tree. A lot of people think the fig tree represents Israel... I'm trying to learn more.
Yes, Israel, for sure and also people, institutions or entire cultures after Christ brings the good news who either believe for a while then fall away or those who have rejected jesus and his Gospel outright and continue ungodly activity.
