"And from the fig tree, learn this parable, when its branch is lush and leaves sprout, you know that Summer is near. So you too when you see all these things, know that He is close to the entrance."
Matthew 24:32-33 Hebrew Delitzsch Gospels
Yeshua our Messiah is a child of the Hebrews and the most amazing teacher of Torah one could find.
If you are not convinced yet, the following article will allow you to understand how useful it is to understand the Hebrew language. You will see how rabbi Yeshua uses the holy language to enlighten subtle wordplays.
What is the common point between a fig tree, Summer, Torah and Moschiach's second coming? Let Yeshua tell you!
וּמִן־הַתְּאֵנָה לִמְדוּ אֶת־הַמָּשָׁל הַזֶּה כַּאֲשֶׁר יִרְטַב עֲנָפָהּ וּפָרְחוּ עָלֶיהָ יְדַעְתֶּם כִּי קָרוֹב הַקָּיִץ׃
A simple reading of the English text of Matthew 24:32 will not reveal you Yeshua's wordplays. A reading of the Hebrew version will allow you to link very symbolic words that belong to Hebrew culture together.
I borrowed the verse above from the Sar Shalom website. The verse begins with "umin ha teena limdu"..."and from the fig we learn"...The fig is a very powerful symbol. It is linked with the tree of knowledge ( ets hadaat) and, thus, with Torah study, but also with the nation of Israel.
It is precisely when Yeshua stated "Before Philip called you, when you were under the fig tree, I saw you", that Bar Timai aka Nathanel recognized Yeshua as the Messiah of Israel.
But there is even more! I didn't expect to find what I actually discovered.
Yeshua's teachings are very subtle.
To describe the Summer while pointing at His Second Coming, Yeshua uses the Hebrew word ( הַקָּיִץ) hakayitz, the Summer, that is phonetically very close to the word (קץ) that carries the meaning of "end".
The following website is also teaching us that (קָּיִץ) is also used for Summer fruits, more specifically FIGS.
This detail is of importance, as it links end times directly with the symbolism of the fig.
When our Messiah returns, He will VALIDATE Torah.
This has also been confirmed in rabbi Kaduri's prophecy that contains our Messiah's hidden name ( the long form of Yeshua: Yehoshua)
