Just before he was arrested, Jesus spent time praying in the garden of Gethsemane. It is one of the most solemn scenes in the bible. The intensity of Jesus’ experience was so deep that as he prayed earnestly he sweat drops of blood (Luke 22:44). Mark’s account reveals three special elements in Jesus’ agony: his emotions, his cup and his love. Together they give us important insights into what his death is all about.
