Also, I see that the barren fig tree is mentioned as though it were not an historical event, but "only" a parable... and yet we know that Jesus did in fact curse the barren fig tree. This is an historical event.
True, but I'm still confused as to the citation of the fig tree. I realise it was a historical event with metaphorical significance... but it is not a parable, is it?
That is a good point Xel... the protestations of accuracy and truth is a literary device that was used in the Da Vinci Code as well now that I think about it.
Markedward... I'm not sure that I'm explaining myself very well to you, so I'll just have to drop it.
