39 And 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."
42 Then he went away again the second time, and prayed, saying, "O my Father, if this cup may not pass away from me unless I drink it, your will be done."2 [So he went to the horrible death of the cross as an example to us of the obedience necessary to slay our selfish spirit on the inward cross of self-denial so that we could be reconciled to God: The world must learn that I love the Father and that I do exactly what my Father has commanded me. John 14:31.]
|John 18:11 |
11 But Jesus said to Peter, "Put your sword up in its sheath; shall I not drink the cup that my Father has given me?"
