Jesus and christology In the garden of Gethsemane, shortly before his arrest, Jesus becomes greatly distressed and troubled and says to his disciples, My soul is very sorrowful, even to death. Remain here and watch The story of Jesus' doubt and anguish at Gethsemane (literally oil press, a small garden outside the eastern wall of Jerusalem on the Mount of Olives) has long been thought one of the more provocative passages in the gospels. This passage launches the passion of Jesus: the period of his suffering up to and including the crucifixion Jesus was, desired, and did exactly what his Father required of him, including his prayers in Gethsemane. It would be presumptuous of any person to suggest that Jesus could have had a better desire or response to his imminent death, which is what Anderson must argue since He believes Christ desired to not do something His Father commanded. The spiritual pain of this feeling of abandonment no doubt greatly exceeded the intense physical pain the Lord endured on our behalf. At the beginning of creation, human history began in a garden (Genesis 2:8), and when the first Adam sinned against God in this garden, death entered the world (Genesis 3:6) We can identify several views regarding the suffering of Jesus. (1) That he did feel fear and grief, but did not sin.(2) That he did not feel fear, per se, but did feel grief. Within (2), there are differing understandings of why Jesus felt grief and agony. Those who (a) accept penal substitution will argue that he was suffering on behalf of his people, while others (b) say that his suffering.
You and I may doubt God's purposes in suffering, but Jesus never did. Ever! What was definitive for Jesus was the joy set before Him, not death. Not doubt. Imagine that. Jesus knew that they would tear His skin from His body, that they would nail Him to a post, and that He would asphyxiate while enduring cruel pain The olive trees are thought to be millennia old, possibly the same trees that sheltered Jesus and his disciples 2000 years ago.) Over the last two months, I've explored the topic of doubt in relation to faith through several posts. I've used the book Benefit of the Doubt, by Gregory Boyd, to hel
Jesus finishes praying with his faithful apostles. Then, 'after singing praises, they go out to the Mount of Olives.' (Mark 14:26) They head eastward to a garden called Gethsemane, where Jesus is accustomed to going. Once they arrive at this pleasant spot among the olive trees, Jesus leaves eight of the apostles behind I was speaking at the InterVarsity group at the University of Maryland on God Behaving Badly a few weeks ago, and I got to the end where I talk about Jesus praying in the Garden of Gethsemane (Mark 14:32; Matt. 26:32) and I couldn't resist the temptation. The Garden of Gethsemane, I was just there just a few weeks ago. It was too good to pass up Filled with anguish and deep dread over what He would soon experience, Jesus withdraws with His inner circle, the three disciples closest to Him, and takes refuge in a special place. There, alone on His knees in the dark night beneath the shelter of olive trees, in a place called the Garden of Gethsemane, He cries out to His Father God Jesus had to pass the test that Adam failed in the garden of Eden (Gen 2:16-17; 3:1-6). He refused to believe the devil's lies and instead obeyed his Father in all things. Jesus was tempted but did not sin (Heb. 4:15). Satan has power, but Jesus has ultimate power over all creation
Agony in the Garden, Jesus prays in the garden after the Last Supper while the disciples sleep and Judas leads the mob, by Andrea Mantegna c. 1460 In Roman Catholic tradition, the Agony in the Garden is the first Sorrowful Mystery of the Rosary and the First Station of the Scriptural Way of The Cross (second station in the Philippine version) .

Jesus often said or did things so that we could see and hear what He did, how He did it, and understand why He did it (John 11:41-42). This prayer to the Father was for us , not Him. If you read the entire incident in context, it is easy to see that Jesus basically said the following to His disciples: It's important to pray Jesus, in taking Israel's place, succeeded. Also, the temptation of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden on which the whole human race was plunged into sin, was concerning appetite. Thus, Jesus had to win the human race back by succeeding where Adam - and Israel - had failed. The sin of appetite was much more than Adam and Eve just being hungry And it was on that Cross that sin was atoned for, which He bore from the Garden of Gethsemane. He did not die in the Garden. Oh, no! He died outside the Garden of Gethsemane, indeed He died outside the city walls of Jerusalem. The Bible says, Wherefore Jesus also, that he might sanctify the people with his own blood, suffered without the gat Most artistic renderings of Jesus in the Garden show him with hands folded or fingers entwined, but I doubt that it was so. I know of no Jewish precedent for folding hands in prayer, and much indication that hands would be lifted in prayer. 1046 The verb for prayer in this verse is the common proseuchomai, pray.

Jesus had just eaten his last supper with his disciples and knew that after his time of prayer in the garden, one of them (Judas Iscariot) would betray him and governmental authorities would arrest him and sentence him to die by crucifixion for claiming to be a king No wonder he prayed in the Garden that this cup might pass from him (Mark 15.35-36)! Becoming the sin-bearer of humanity meant forsakenness by God the Father. This Jesus experienced on the cross (Mark 15.34). Thus the torment of the cross was much more than the physical suffering Jesus endured Peter's denial was based on weakness and fear. After the Last Supper, Jesus took the disciples to the Garden of Gethsemane to await His arrest. There Jesus told them to be alert and prayerfully while He went off to pray by Himself. When Jesus returned to them, He found the disciples sleeping

The devil tempted Eve in the Garden of Eden, and here he tempted Jesus in the wilderness. Satan is a fallen angel. He is a real, created being, not symbolic, and is constantly fighting against those who follow and obey God. The verb to be tempted describes continuous action because Jesus was tempted constantly during the forty days Why did Jesus suffer in the Garden of Gethsemane? The gospels of Matthew and Mark identify this place of prayer as Gethsemane .

Now in the place where He was crucified there was a garden, and in the garden a new tomb in which no one had yet been laid. So there they laid Jesus, because of the Jews' Preparation Day, for the tomb was nearby.

It's the same thing he's used since the Garden Did God really say Genesis 3:1a He is all about tempting us to doubt Verse 1: When Jesus had spoken these words, he went out with his disciples across the Kidron Valley, where there was a garden, which he and his disciples entered. The Kidron Valley is a dry waterbed with water only during the rainy season, so crossing it in April would not have involved getting wet Skeptics sometimes question the Gospel eyewitness accounts of the Resurrection, particularly related to the early observations of the risen Christ. In John's record of the Resurrection, Mary doesn't immediately recognize Jesus in the garden. In fact, she initially mistakes Him for the gardener (John 20:1-16).

According to Mormonism, Jesus paid for the sins of man in the Garden of Gethsemane, and not on the cross. The Bible tells us his defense of this is wrong. The other argument of this Mormon gentleman is found in his repeated accusations that we're bowing down to graven images; i.e. the cross Jesus Prays in Gethsemane. 36 Then Jesus went with them to the olive grove called Gethsemane, and he said, Sit here while I go over there to pray. 37 He took Peter and Zebedee's two sons, James and John, and he became anguished and distressed. 38 He told them, My soul is crushed with grief to the point of death.

Part II—The Fall of Mankind. The story of Lucifer becoming Satan brings sin into existence on earth, but how did sin become a human problem? Adventists find that answer at the end of the Creation story. 2 In the beginning of Earth's history, God created two people—Adam and Eve—and gave them the Garden of Eden. 3 Both the people and the garden were perfect, but amidst their perfection. Matthew 26:36-46, Mark 14:32-42, Luke 22:40-46 The Bible opens with a garden - Eden. It closes with one too - the New Jerusalem. In between, in the midst of Holy Week, another garden comes to play in God's story of redemption - Gethsemane. Jesus went to Gethsemane to pray as no one else has ever prayed, befor Whether we mean to or not, we Christians sometimes lump it into the category with doubt and lack of faith—or worse.
