Mark 14:32-42 (NASB) 32 They *came to a place named Gethsemane; and He *said to His disciples, “Sit here until I have prayed.” 33 And He *took with Him Peter and James and John, and began to be very distressed and troubled. 34 And He *said to them, “My soul is deeply grieved to the point of death; remain here and keep watch.” 35 And He went a little beyond them, and fell to the ground and began to pray that if it were possible, the hour might pass Him by. 36 And He was saying, “Abba! Father! All things are possible for You; remove this cup from Me; yet not what I will, but what You will.” 37 And He *came and *found them sleeping, and *said to Peter, “Simon, are you asleep? Could you not keep watch for one hour? 38 Keep watching and praying that you may not come into temptation; the spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak.” 39 Again He went away and prayed, saying the same words. 40 And again He came and found them sleeping, for their eyes were very heavy; and they did not know what to answer Him. 41 And He *came the third time, and *said to them, “Are you still sleeping and resting? It is enough; the hour has come; behold, the Son of Man is being betrayed into the hands of sinners. 42 Get up, let us be going; behold, the one who betrays Me is at hand!”



  1. This shows such the human side of Jesus. Very emotional to read and think about.

  2. 'The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak.'
    Such a struggle we have with our fleshly selves.

  3. I often wonder what Jesus was so distressed about. I think of several things and not just that He would suffer physically. He would also know that those who loved Him would also betray Him. He would be leaving them to finish His work. Others who loved Him like His own mother would watch Him suffer and die, not understanding that He would rise, walk the earth another 40days and then go to sit at His Father’s right hand.
