Mark 11:12 Meaning and Commentary

Mark 11:12

And on the morrow
The next day early in the morning,

when they were come from Bethany;
Christ, and his twelve disciples. The Syriac and Persic versions read, "when he came out of Bethany"; though not alone, but with the twelve disciples, who went with him there, and returned with him, as appears from ( Mark 11:14 ) , as he and they came out of that place early in the morning, having ate nothing, before they came from thence,

he was hungry; (See Gill on Matthew 21:18).

Mark 11:12 In-Context

10 Blessings on the coming Kingdom of our ancestor David! Praise God in highest heaven!”
11 So Jesus came to Jerusalem and went into the Temple. After looking around carefully at everything, he left because it was late in the afternoon. Then he returned to Bethany with the twelve disciples.
12 The next morning as they were leaving Bethany, Jesus was hungry.
13 He noticed a fig tree in full leaf a little way off, so he went over to see if he could find any figs. But there were only leaves because it was too early in the season for fruit.
14 Then Jesus said to the tree, “May no one ever eat your fruit again!” And the disciples heard him say it.
