In the Garden of Gethsemane Jesus experienced a deep anguish of the soul in the hours preceding His betrayal. Why was He so filled with dread? He was painfully aware of the profound event that was about to take place. More than the physical suffering of the cross, Jesus would soon take upon Himself the burden of sin and experience the outpouring of God's wrath that such sin deserves. Though the first Adam declared in another garden "Not your will, but mine be done," bringing sin and death into the world, Jesus would obediently submit Himself to the Father, praying, "Not my will, but yours be done," bringing salvation to a cursed humanity.
