On the way in on the second morning Jesus cursed the fig tree. The tree would come up again in further parables.
The surprising headline of the day was US President Barack Obama's announcement that he was ending a US plan to install European wide missile defense in the Czech Republic and Poland.
His stated reasons included cost and the changing threat from Iran. Europeans were generally astonished.
The leafy canopy of a tree is a match to the canopy envisioned by missile defense. This is a match.
The halting of the project is a match to the way Jesus halted the fig tree from producing fruit.
The public announcement, with the European response is a match to the comment that the disciples heard of what Jesus had done.
