Riddle me this: What does Jesus — the supposedly all-knowing, all-powerful God incarnate — do when he gets hungry and happens upon an out-of-season fig tree? He cursed it, causing it to wither that no one may ever eat from it. (See Matthew 21:18–22.)
That’s certainly a curious response from a man who, allegedly, went weeks without eating, declaring that living by God’s words is more important than food. (See Matthew 4:4.)
