Mark 11:12-20 (New International Reader's Version)
12 The next day as Jesus and his disciples were leaving Bethany, they were hungry.
13 Not too far away, he saw a fig tree. It was covered with leaves. He went to find out if it had any fruit. When he reached it, he found nothing but leaves. It was not the season for figs.
14 Then Jesus said to the tree, "May no one ever eat fruit from you again!" And his disciples heard him say it.

He did it to show two lessons to his disciples.(1) to show that they should have faith without doubting. Mark 11:21-24. (2) and second , the fig tree represented the nation of Israel, which was not producing hardly any fruit, by not accepting him as the Messiah and Son of God. Jehovah cursed the Jewish nation by inflicting upon them punishment, when the Romans destroyed Jerusalem the capitol of Israel in 70 C.E. Luke 13:6-9 Luke 21:20,21 also God's favor would be passed to another nation that would produce good fruit or Spiritual Israel. Mathew 21:43 Answer by LizzieAnnesMom
An interesting INTERPRETATION, but nowhere in the nearby verses does it say this is the reason. That's the nice thing about the bible. You can make the verses mean ANYTHING you want them to!!

It failed to produce fruit out of it's natural growing season. And instead of doing a miracle and causing it to bear fruit he killed it. Poor, Innocent tree!!! Isn't killing against the 10 commandments??
