is to present Christ to the world.”

“If you would stand through the time of trouble, you must know Christ, and appropriate the gift of His righteousness, which He imputes to the repentant sinner.”

RH Nov 22, 1892

God's people must have that faith which will lay hold of divine power; ‘for by grace are ye saved through

The Golden Faith

that the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with

The Golden Faith

fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the ap-pearing of Jesus Christ.”

1 Pet 1:6-7

  • “He began to be deeply distressed and troubled.”

Mark 14:33, NIV

  • The verb translated “deeply distressed” (NIV) “deeply disturb-ed” (NKJV) designates a highly emotional

condition of deep sor-row caused by some-thing perplexing and overwhelming.

  • The experience is often accompanied by fear, even terror and trembling.
  • Matthew uses another verb translated “overwhelmed by sorrow” to designate a high level of emotional distress, sadness, and anxiety.

Matt 26:38

  • In Mark 14:33, the word “troubled” ex-presses more clearly anxiety, distress, and horror.
  • The emotional condition of Jesus was reaching new and unknown depths of discomfort and upheaval.
  • The peace that character-ized Jesus appeared to be waning; fear, tremble-ing, and anxiety were taking over instead.
  • Notice what Mark says: that Jesus “began” to feel that way as He entered into the Garden of Gethsemane.
  • This emotional turmoil was going to get much worse.
  • Notice, further, the way Jesus Himself described His condition to the disciples:
  • “My soul is exceeding-ly sorrowful, even to death” (Mark 14:34, NKJV).
  • “My soul is over-whelmed with sorrow to the point of death” (NIV).
  • Although no specific reason is given for the emotional state of Jesus at this time, through the light

of the New Testament, we can conclude that this was the result of bearing the world’s sin.

  • Although Jesus never committed a sin, He was “made to be sin for us…”

…“that we might be made the righteous-ness of God in Him”

2 Cor 5:21

  • Jesus bore the sin of the world from the time of His baptism to the cross. See John 1:29; 1 Pet 2:24.
  • Jesus “bore our sins in His own body on the tree.”

1 Pet 2:24

  • Jesus “bore our sins in His own body TO the tree” (KJV marg-inal reading).
  • The expression “over-whelmed with sorrow” (Matt 26:38), in the original language, usually designates

a sorrow or affliction that is measureless in intensity and depth.

  • The intensity of His sorrow was bringing Jesus to the borders of “the second death.”
  • Jesus was already starting to suffer the fate that should have been ours.
  • It was in Gethsemane that Jesus began to taste death for us (Heb 2:9).

Heb 2:9

As God: above all law

He was made to be under the condemnation of the law

Tasted death for everyone
