THE SUNDAY SCHOOL.
LNTERNATIONAL LESSON' COM
MENTS FOR NOVEMBER 11.
Subject: Jesus in Gethsenane, Matt.
xxvi., 36-50--Golden Text: Luke
xxii., 42--Memory Verses, 38, 39
-Topic: The Agony of Jesus.
L Jesus enters the garden (vs.
36, 3'). 36. "Then." This was
about midnight. "Cometh." .After
they had left the -upper room where
they had eaten the pasbal supper.
"With them." There were only
eleven now; Juda was absent mak
Ing arrangements for the betrayal.
"Unto a place." Jesus oftentimes
resorted to this quiet retreat with
His disciples (John 18:2) for re
freshment, retirement, uniet instruc
tion and perhaps prayer. "Gethse
mane." The name means oil press,
an emblem of trial, distress, agony.
"Sit ye here." He left eight of the
disciples at the entrance of the gar
den. '"Pray." Christ frequently went
alone to pray.
37. "Took with Him." Farther
into the garden, to a spot more re
I tired. In this hour Jesus needed hu
man sympathy, even while He must
"tread the wine press alone." "Two
sons of Zebedee." James and John.
The three disciples Jesus took with
Him had been witnesses of His trans
figuration and glory, and were now
to behold His humiliation and agony.
"Began to be sorrowful." To be
penetrated with the most exquisite
sorrow, and overwhelmed with 'deep
anguish. "Very heavy." Sore trou
bled; a stronger word than the other.
II. The bitter eup of sorrow (vs.
38, 39). 38. "Even unto death."
It was agony that would destroy Hit
life if it continued. The agony be
came so great that His rweat was
great drops of blood falling down to
the ground. "Tarry ye here." Spo
ken to the three disciples.
39. "A little farther." About a
stone's cast (Luke); 150 to 200 feet.
There were now three divisions of
the little company-the eight, the
three, and Jesus alone. "On Hit
face." This was the ordinary post
ure of the supplicant when the favor
asked was great, and deep humilia
tion required. -The head was put be'
tween the knees and the forehead
brought to touch the earth. "MY
Father." In all our addresses to God
we should eye- Him as a 'ather-as
our Father, and it Is in a special
manner helpful to do so when we are
In an agony. "If it be possible." The
great horror of Jesus in the garden
arose, not from fear of Calvary, but
from fear of failure, through physi
cal suffering to reach Calvary, and
so lose all for which He left heaven.
"Not as I will." If it is Thy will that
I should (lie here In the -garden in
stead of dying on the cross, as fore
told, I submit. He was entirely re
signed to His Father's will.
I7I. The disciples asleep (vs. 40,
41). 40. "Cometh unto the disci
ples." He did this three.times dur
ing this awful hour. He apparently
desired communion with them and
the sympathy and comfort which they
could give. "Asleep." . Luke says
they were sleeping for sorrow. "Un
to Peter." Peter had iust made Ipud
professions. "With Me." He was
sufftering for them, but only expected
that they would watch with Hhf.
"One hour." Sometimes Chrit~fcon
tInued in prayer all night, but He
only asked them to watch with Him
one hour.
41. "Watch and pray" A? testing
time Is coming and you will need to
watch carefully and pray earnestly.
The Christian is in danger of falling
a prey to the world, the flesh and the
devil. "The spirit--willing," etc.
They desired to watch with Him and
thus show their sympathy and love
for Him, but their bodies and minds
were weak.
IV. Jesus prevails in prayer (vs.
42-4 4). 42. "The second time."
flis going the second and third times
shows how great was the burden and
His intense eagerness and persever
