Walking with Jesus: the Gospel of Luke
Luke 22:39-54 Gethsemane

If you have ever experienced the silence of God, the dark night when you need him and don’t hear from him, you can understand some of what Jesus experienced for us. The night he was to be betrayed and the day before his crucifixion, Jesus asked if the Cup of Wrath he was to “drink” could pass. He was met with the Father’s silence–the foretaste of the forsakenness and wrath that he would experience in full on the Cross for us–and he was shaken to the core.
