Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal by Zach Weinersmith for April 12, 2016
Dad, how can you believe the Bible is completely accurate? Easy. Read Mark 11:12:14. The next day as they were leaving Bethany, Jesus was hungry. Seeing in the distance a fig tree and leaf, he went to find out if it had any fruit. When he reached it, he found nothing but leaves, because it was not the season for figs. Then he said to the tree, may no one ever eat fruit from you again. And his disciples heard him say it. I don't get it. If you were writing a biography of your hero, would you include the part where he yelled at a tree in front of everyone? Only if I were really really honest. Proof by mortification.
