- Jesus In Gethsemane.
They came to a place called Gethsemane, and Jesus said to his disciples "Sit here while i pray."He took Peter,James and John with him.Distress and anguish came over him and he said "The sorrow in my heart is so great that it almost crushes me.Stay here and keep watch." Then Jesus went a little farther on, threw himself on the ground, and prayed, that maybe if possible, he didnt have to go through that time of suffering."Father"he prayed"My Father,all things are possible for you.Take this cup of suffering away from me, yet not what i want, but what you want." Then he returned, and found the three disciples sleeping. He said to Peter "Simon, are you asleep? Were you not able to stay awake for even one hour?" And he said to them "Keep watch and pray that you do not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing but the flesh is weak." He went away once more, and prayed, saying the same words. Then he came back and saw that the disciples were still asleep, they could not keep their eyes open. And they did not know what to say to him. When Jesus came back the third time, he said to them "Are you still sleeping and resting? Enough! The hour has come. Look the Son of Man is now being handed over to the power of the sinners, Get up, let us go, look! Here is the man who will betray me.
Jesus in Gethsemane.
Jesus was still speaking, when Judas, one of the twelve disciples arrived, with him was a crowd armed with swords and clubs, sent by the chief priests, teachers of the Law, and the elders. The traitor had given the crowd a signal. "The man i kiss is the man you want!" Arrest him and take him away under guard. As soon as Judas arrived, he went up to Jesus, said "Teacher" and kissed him. And so they arrested him at once and held him tight. But one of those standing there, drew out his sword and struck it at the High priests slave, cutting off his ear. Then Jesus spoke up and said to them "Did you have to come with your swords and clubs to capture me as if i were an outlaw? Day after day i was teaching in the temple and you did not arrest me. But the scriptures must come true." Then all disciples left him and ran away. A certain young man dressed in only linen cloth, was folliwing Jesus. They tried to arrest him, but he ran away naked, leaving the cloth behind.
