Parables of Jesus: Luke 13:6-8

The Parable of the Barren Fig Tree
(Luke 13:6-8).

Then he told this parable:
“A man had a fig tree, planted in his vineyard, and he went to look for fruit on it, but did not find any.  So he said to the man who took care of the vineyard, ‘For three years now I’ve been coming to look for fruit on this fig tree and haven’t found any.  Cut it down!  Why should it use up the soil?’
“ ‘Sir,’ the man replied, ‘leave it alone for one more year, and I’ll dig around it and fertilize it.  If it bears fruit next year, fine!  If not, then cut it down.’ ”

As the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without deeds is dead.

Waiting

The song I came to sing
remains unsung to this day.
I have spent my days in stringing
and in unstringing my instrument.

The time has not come true,
the words have not been rightly set;
only there is the agony
of wishing in my heart.....

I have not seen his face,
nor have I listened to his voice;
only I have heard his gentle footsteps
from the road before my house.....

But the lamp has not been lit
and I cannot ask him into my house;
I live in the hope of meeting with him;
but this meeting is not yet.

~Rabindranath Tagore

The_Mill_and_the_Cross

A cinematographic feast.
Though, there is much more than the great imagery.
I think we are told about a deeper existentialist message, where the classic Christianity is put under scrutiny.
The Mill is the expression of a deistic view, where God exists (the Miller) but do not intervene in the human's life, other then providing the "daily bread", the base of common existence.
The importance of Jesus sacrifice is lost to people, due to mundane distractions; Humans cannot comprehend the importance of the event they experience.
It is not obvious that Jesus resurects, though people are joyously singing and dancing the next day after his sacrifice.
Is this because of the Cross redemption or just because the Miller provided the daily bread?
