Jan Luyken etching of the Parable of the barren fig tree in the Bowyer Bible.

The Parable of the Barren Fig Tree is a parable told by Jesus in the gospel of Luke.

According to the Gospel of Luke (13:6-15):

"A man had a fig tree growing in his vineyard, and he went to look for fruit on it but did not find any. So he said to the man who took care of the vineyard, 'For three years now I've been coming to look for fruit on this fig tree and haven't found any. Cut it down! Why should it use up the soil?'
"'Sir,' the man replied, 'leave it alone for one more year, and I'll dig around it and fertilize it. If it bears fruit next year, fine! If not, then cut it down.' "
