Luke 13:1–9

When people told Jesus about a group of Galileans killed by Pilate, he told the people that unless they repent, they will all likewise perish. To help them understand, he tells them a parable about giving a fig tree more time to grow fruit. If not, the tree would be cut down. Jesus teaches that God gives us every opportunity to grow closer to him.

Lucas 13.1–9

Cuando la gente le contó a Jesús sobre un grupo de galileos asesinados por Pilato, Jesús dijo a la gente que si no se arrepienten, todos perecerán del mismo modo. Para ayudarlos a comprender, les cuenta una parábola sobre darle a una higuera más tiempo para dar fruto. Si no, la cortará. Jesús enseña que Dios nos da muchas oportunidades para que nos acerquemos más a él.
