This moment in the garden was the calm before the storm. I’m sure there was a sense of apprehension in the air. Jesus had just shared what would be His last meal with them and spoke some confusing and difficult truth. Something about betrayal and that He would have to die, that PETER would deny Him!… I’m sure the disciples felt a bit of unease. And Christ, He knew something big was coming, something monumental, something that would change the course of eternity for human kind.
Today, we not only celebrate the life and death, but the resurrection of Jesus the Christ! Christmas is important, without the birth of our Savior there would be no Easter celebration, but without the Resurrection, we would not celebrate His birth! His birth split time into BC, Before Christ and AD, Anno Domini. But again this would not have happened if Jesus would have been just another good teacher, or religious leader.
