Day 5: Garden of Gethsemane

00:00

Description

Before Jesus would endure unimaginable physical suffering, He would experience emotional and spiritual torment that was far greater.

Before Jesus would endure the physical suffering you've just considered, He would experience emotional and spiritual torment that was far greater. In the garden, the full scope of Jesus' mission became readily apparent. Jesus knew, once He left the garden, all that would occur: the treacherous betrayal by one of His own; being derided and made sport of by soldiers; a circus trial in which guilty politicians proclaimed judgment on an innocent man; brutal beatings; and then, the cross, the bearing of your sin and mine.

And He came out and proceeded as was His custom to the Mount of Olives; and the disciples also followed Him. When He arrived at the place, He said to them, “Pray that you may not enter into temptation.” And He withdrew from them about a stone’s throw, and He knelt down and began to pray, saying, “Father, if You are willing, remove this cup from Me; yet not My will, but Yours be done.” Now an angel from heaven appeared to Him, strengthening Him. And being in agony He was praying very fervently; and His sweat became like drops of blood, falling down upon the ground.

-Luke 22:39-44
