If It Is Possible

If It Is Possible 38 Then He said to them, “My soul is exceedingly sorrowful, even to death. Stay here and watch with Me.” 39 He went a little farther and fell on His face, and prayed, saying, “O My Father, if it is possible, let this cup pass from Me; nevertheless, not as I will, but as You will.”  Matthew 26:38-39 Just […]

Deeply Distressed

Deeply Distressed 36 Then Jesus came with them to a place called Gethsemane, and said to the disciples, “Sit here while I go and pray over there.” 37 And He took with Him Peter and the two sons of Zebedee, and He began to be sorrowful and deeply distressed.

If I Have to Die 34 Jesus said to him, “Assuredly, I say to you that this night, before the rooster crows, you will deny Me three times.” 35 Peter said to Him, “Even if I have to die with You, I will not deny You!” And so said all the disciples. Matthew 26:34-35 There is such a […]

I Will Never

I Will Never 33 Peter answered and said to Him, “Even if all are made to stumble because of You, I will never be made to stumble.” Matthew 26:33 Peter had a bad habit of speaking first, thinking second.

Sing a Song

Sing a Song 30 And when they had sung a hymn, they went out to the Mount of Olives.                                                                   Matthew 26:30                                     This is the only verse in the Bible that speaks of Jesus singing. One might wonder what kind of a song he chose considering the event. He had just seen Judas leave to betray […]

Wine and Blood?

Wine and Blood? 27 Then He took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, “Drink from it, all of you. 28 For this is My blood of the new covenant, which is shed for many for the remission of sins. 29 But I say to you, I will not drink of this fruit of the vine from now on until that day when I drink it […]

Did Judas Eat?

Did Judas Eat? 25 Then Judas, who was betraying Him, answered and said, “Rabbi, is it I?” He said to him, “You have said it.” 26 And as they were eating, Jesus took bread, blessed and broke it, and gave it to the disciples and said, “Take, eat; this is My body.” Matthew 26:25-26 There is much debate among scholars as to the question of whether […]

Not Been Born 23 He answered and said, “He who dipped his hand with Me in the dish will betray Me. 24 The Son of Man indeed goes just as it is written of Him, but woe to that man by whom the Son of Man is betrayed! It would have been good for that man if he had not been born.” Matthew 26:23-24 […]
