Luke 22:39-46, Human Frailty and Divine Sovereignty

Jesus and the disciples left the upper room in the early hours of Friday morning. They moved across the Kidron Valley and up the slopes of the Mount of Olives just east of Jerusalem. There Jesus instructed his disciples to pray so that Satan would not “sift” them. He withdrew to pray by himself. He poured out his soul in great agony as he anticipated the injustice and suffering that would soon come upon him.
