Jesus has been in Jerusalem, the center of the Jewish world, for about a week. Late on Thursday night, he takes some time away to pray in a wooded garden on the hills outside the city. At this point, he knows the temple leaders are scheming. He knows his teaching threatens their power. He knows they will do their worst to stop him. He knows they will torture him and he will be killed. Jesus knows what is coming and could very well escape. But in his tormented prayer in the garden, Jesus commits to go through with it. Grieved and terrified, Jesus stays. He stays for the sake of ensuring the authenticity of his teaching.
Read Mark 14:32–42
