Nahum 3:12, Matthew 21:18-19

In Nahum, there is a description of ripe figs on a fig tree being shaken so as to fall in someone’s mouth.  Later, in Matthew, Jesus was hungry in the morning and approached a fig tree.  It only had leaves and no figs, and Jesus used his power to make the fruitless tree wither.  In joining the two passages above, I’m thinking that Jesus was hoping to have figs drop into his mouth for breakfast.  That sounded like a great idea for breakfast, and I’m guessing there were other times when Jesus got to enjoy figs.
