Parable of the Fig Tree

LUKE 13:6-9 (New KJV)
Bible Truth Online Commentary in BLUE
The Parable of the Barren Fig Tree
He also spoke this parable: “A certain man (GOD) 
had a fig tree (The Jews) planted in his 
vineyard (The world), and he came seeking fruit 
on it and found none. Then he said to the keeper 
of his vineyard, ‘Look, for three years 
(The time of Jesus' ministry) I have come seeking 
fruit on this fig tree (The Jews) and find none. 
Cut it down; why does it use up the ground?’ But 
he answered and said to him, ‘Sir, let it alone 
this year (The Millenium) also, until I dig around 
it and fertilize it. And if it bears fruit, well. 
But if not, after that you can cut it down.’”
