NOTE: 26:36-46 - We see Jesus here as trulySon of :man as well as Son of God. As Son of :man He is facing a death on our behalf so terrible, that in His humanity He found it almost impossible to go through with it. Thisis a death not envisaged or understood by Mel Gibson in his “The Passion of the Christ.” This is not a merephysical death, but a death of the spirit, the second death. In Isaiah 53:9, the Hebrew literally reads, “And he made his grave with the rich in his deaths.” Here “Death” is plural, for Jesus died twice. First he died spiritually when God placed upon Him the sins of the complete Adamic race. When He becamesin, the world went dark; the Father turned His face from His Son - and the Son cried out, “My God, My God, Why have you forsaken Me?” No other human being except Jesus the sinless Son of :man and Son of God will evergo through what Hewent through for us. He literally died in His spirit at that point. Cursedis every man that hangs on a Tree - the Cross!.
Following His spiritual death on our behalf, He then died a physical death, as portrayed by Mel Gibson. His Resurrection was a double Resurrection. He rose not only physically - but spirituallyalso as the First Fruits of a New Creation. We are joined to Him as the Headof the One New Man composed of Jew and Gentile.
It was the horror He faced as the sinlessSon of man about to become sinfor us. He took our sin, and exchanged it for His righteousness and spiritual life. You say, “I can't understand this!” Maybe none of us can or ever will - but - we can allexperience it if we will. 2 Corinthians 5:17 is a statement of the experience. “So that if any isin Christ, he isa new creation: the old are passed away; lo, they are become new!” Mrs. Maria Woodworth-Etter called thisa bright conversion. Again, we canexperience it - but we may never fully understand it. E. W. Kenyon is one of the fewwho understood the significance of Jesus' “two deaths” suffered on the cross as laid out in Isaiah 53:9.
It was because of what He was about to face on the Cross in being made sin on our behalf, that Jesus desired the 3 disciples to pray in fellowship for Him, as He went apart, sweating great drops as of blood in His agony, just before Judas betrayed Him
Jesus cameto die for us. The Book of Hebrews makes this abundantly clear. It was the Father's will. Angels came and strengthened Him in Gethsemane, so that He could go through with the task He had come to fulfill. Every time we take the Lord's Supper, we should rememberHis deaths, plural, till He comes!
What Judas did in delivering Jesus to His enemies was horrible. But the Father had Jesus choose Judas as one of the 12, fully knowing exactly what was going to happen. It hadto happen. Jesus said, “Did not I choose you 12, and one of you is a devil?”
After Jesus was takenin the Garden - then all the remaining 11 disciples fled.
