Journey through the Bible with Laura Zielke

Mark 14:26-34 (Focus: Gethsemane)

This week we studied Jesus’ Gethsemane prediction of Peter’s imminent denials and the forthcoming abandonment by His apostles. As they entered the Garden, the group of followers thinned out to only four: Peter, James, John, and Jesus. As they moved farther into the Garden, we observed how Jesus allowed this “inner circle of friends” to see some of His physical/mental/emotional agony before He went to pray alone.
