Testing in the Garden
When we think of watershed moments in the Bible, perhaps we don’t think of Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane. Many know the story, but do we really understand what is at stake in this moment? This is the question we’ll explore in today’s passage. This was when there no more wondering exactly what Jesus came to do. This is when Jesus even asks for the cup to pass from him. And this is when Jesus submitted to the will of the Father and chooses the cross, for our salvation!
