Garden of Gethsemane video

Friday during Passion Week started with Jesus in Gethsemane. Jesus had just shared intimate hours (from around 7-11 pm on Thursday night) with his disciples in the Upper Room...celebrating the Passover Seder, instituting the Lord's Supper, sharing teaching that we now call the Upper Room discourse, and praying for his disciples. After a 30 minute walk down the western hill across the Kidron Valley, the 12 men arrive at Gethsemane late late Thursday evening. Jesus now starts another prayer time with his Father, this one less intimate than the Upper Room, and much more agonizing. At the end of this prayer time at Gethsemane, Judas betrays Jesus and Jesus is arrested. This starts a whirlwind of 'trials' before Jewish and Roman leaders, which culminates with Jesus on the cross at 9 am Friday morning.

Check out this video by GYI partner John North thats talks about Gethsemane.
