Journey through the Bible with Laura Zielke

Personal Agony. Oblivious Friends. (Mark 14:32-42)

This week we studied Jesus’ prayer time in Gethsemane. We looked at what Jesus asked and how His followers responded. Additionally, we saw HOW Jesus prayed, and how it matched up very closely with the model prayer He shared with His followers (a.k.a. “The Lord’s Prayer”).

    Enjoyed listening to the class we missed on Sunday. Thanks Laura for recording this. You have such a way of teaching so that I understand exactly what you are saying. Your lessons are thought provoking, informative, and you put in a little humor in too.

      I’m glad you enjoyed it. I think this lesson impacted me the most of any lessons I’ve taught recently. Just to see how Jesus prayed the same way He taught the disciples (and us) to pray blew me away. He didn’t have a secret “better” way to pray that He hid from us–He gave us what He had. Wow.
