A Man of Sorrows

Today’s Devotion is an Excerpt From Jesus, Day by Day

Today’s Through the Bible Reading: Mark 14:32-52; Matthew 26:36-56; Luke 22:39-65; John 18:1-12

My soul is exceeding sorrowful unto death. Mark 14:34

Isaiah prophesied that the redeemer would be “a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief” (Isa. 53:3). We read of many sorrowful moments in Jesus’s life: the death of His friend Lazarus (John 11), the sorrow He felt as the rich young ruler walked away (Mark 10:21–23), and the grief He showed as He wept over Jerusalem (Luke 19:41). But none of these compare to the grief He experienced as He prayed in the Garden of Gethsemane.
