In Deuteronomy 8:8 it says that:
אֶ֤רֶץ חִטָּה֙ וּשְׂעֹרָ֔ה וְגֶ֥פֶן וּתְאֵנָ֖ה וְרִמּ֑וֹן אֶֽרֶץ־זֵ֥ית שֶׁ֖מֶן וּדְבָֽשׁ׃
Which is the same as:
a land of wheat and barley, of vines, figs, and pomegranates, a land of olive trees and honey;
concerning figs I'd like to know what is the meaning of the following:
32 Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh: 33 So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors. 34 Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled. 35 Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.
What exactly does summer refer to, and these things and also this generation in order to understand exactly what period is implicit? How this event fits in the jewish calendar?
