Gethsemane

May 16, 2021 By: Damien Garofalo Series: The Gospel of Mark Scripture: Mark 14:32-42
Immediately before his arrest, Jesus took his inner circle to pray in the garden of Gethsemane. “Gethsemane” means “oil press”, and for generations Christians have noted how this has become a place known for seeing the pressure on Christ on full display. Mark says he was “greatly distressed and troubled.” Jesus tells his disciples that his “soul is very sorrowful, even unto death.” Certainly, the pressure was on.
