The fig tree
From their fruits ye shall recognize them. Do men gather grapes from thorns, or figs from thistles?
Either make the tree good and its fruit good, or make the tree worthless and its fruit worthless; for from the fruit the tree is known.
"For there is no good tree that bears corrupt fruit; nor again a corrupt tree that bears good fruit;
And, if the first-fruit is holy, so also is the lump; and, if the root is holy, so also are the branches.
