THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO MATTHEW - Chapter 24 - Verse 32

Verse 32. Now learn a parable. See Barnes "Mt 13:3".

The word here means, rather, an illustration. Make a comparison, or judge of this as you do respecting a fig-tree.

Fig tree. This was spoken on the Mount of Olives, which produced not only olives, but figs. Possibly one was near when he spoke this.

When his branch, etc. When the juices return from the roots into the branches, and the buds swell and burst, as if tender, and too feeble to-contain the pressing and expanding leaves. When you see that, you judge that spring and summer are near.

{g} "learn" Lu 21:29
