Maundy Thursday 2015

And going a little farther he fell on his face and prayed, saying, “My Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me; nevertheless, not as I will, but as you will.” … And, for the second time, he went away and prayed, “My Father, if this cannot pass unless I drink it, your will be done.”
Matthew 26:39 and 42

“Do you think that I cannot appeal to my Father, and he will at once send me more than twelve legions of angels? But how then should the Scriptures be fulfilled, that it must be so?” … Then all the disciples left him and fled.
Matthew 26:53-54 and 56

He was despised and rejected of men;
a man of sorrows and acquainted with grief.
He gave His back to the smiters,
and His cheeks to them that plucked off the hair:
He hid not His face from shame and spitting.
Taken from Isaiah 53:3 and 50:6

All they that see Him laugh Him to scorn;
they shoot out their lips, and shake their heads, saying:
“He trusted in God that He would deliver Him;
let Him deliver Him, if He delight in Him.”
Taken from Psalm 22:7-8

Thy rebuke hath broken His heart;
He is full of heaviness.
He looked for some to have pity on Him, but there was no man,
neither found He any to comfort Him.
Behold, and see
if there be any sorrow like unto His sorrow.
Psalm 69:20 and Lamentations 1:12

They gave me poison for food,
and for my thirst they gave me sour wine to drink.
Psalm 69:21
