Mental Ills: Kenosis Part II

Mt 26:37-46

And taking with Him Peter and the two sons of Zebedee, He began to be sorrowful and troubled. Then He said to them, “My soul is very sorrowful, even to death; remain here, and watch with me.”

And going a little farther He fell on His face and prayed, “My Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me; nevertheless, not as I will, but as Thou wilt.”

And He came to the disciples and found them sleeping; and He said to Peter, “So, could you not watch with me one hour? Watch and pray that you may not enter into temptation; the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.”

Again, for the second time, He went away and prayed, “My Father, if this cannot pass unless I drink it, Thy will be done.”

And again He came and found them sleeping, for their eyes were heavy. So, leaving them again, He went away and prayed for the third time, saying the same words.

Then He came to the disciples and said to them, “Are you still sleeping and taking your rest? Behold, the hour is at hand, and the Son of man is betrayed into the hands of sinners. Rise, let us be going; see, my betrayer is at hand.”

Luke 22: 43-44

43 And there appeared to Him an angel from heaven, strengthening Him. 44 And being in an agony He prayed more earnestly; and His sweat became like great drops of blood falling down upon the ground.
