Is. 53:10-12


t pleased the Lord to bruise him. When he shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see his seed…For he shall bear their iniquities….He bare the sin of many and made intercession for the transgressors.”


Isaiah prophesied Jesus’ deathSlide3

What phrases in Matthew 26:36–39 describe how Jesus felt as He entered Gethsemane?Slide4

Gethsemane comes from the Hebrew words



[gath], meaning “press,” and semane [shemen], meaning “oil”. Gethsemane therefore means “oil press.” The garden of Gethsemane was a grove of olive trees where the Savior was “pressed” in that garden by the weight of the sins of all mankind until His blood flowed from His skin. Definition of

14:32–34  Alma 7:11–13How might knowing what the Savior suffered and why He suffered help you as you face trials, pains, and afflictions?When have you felt the Savior succor you in a time of pain, sickness, or sorrow? What principle can we learn from the Savior’s instructions to these Apostles?Slide14


Neal A.

Maxwell: “‘

In Gethsemane, the suffering Jesus began to be “sore amazed” (Mark 14:33), or, in the Greek, “awestruck” and “astonished.”“‘Imagine, Jehovah, the Creator of this and other worlds, “astonished”! … He had never personally known the exquisite and exacting process of an atonement before. Thus, when the agony came in its fulness, it was so much, much worse than even He with his unique intellect had ever imagined! …“‘The cumulative weight of all mortal sins—past, present, and future—pressed upon that perfect, sinless, and sensitive Soul! All our infirmities and sicknesses were somehow, too, a part of the awful arithmetic of the Atonement.

(See Alma 7:11–12

GETHSEMANE children’s song

Listen to the song, Gethsemane.Slide16

The Symbolism of Olive Trees

Listen to the song,




He knows what it felt like when your mother died of cancer--how it was for your mother, how it still is for you.

He knows what it felt like to lose the student body election. He knows that moment when the brakes locked and the car started to skid.

He experienced the slave ship sailing from Ghana toward Virginia. He experienced the gas chambers at Dachau. He experienced napalm in Vietnam. Slide18

It's our faith that he experienced everything--absolutely everything. Sometimes we don't think through the implications of that belief. We talk in great generalities about the sins of all humankind, about the suffering of the entire human family. But we don't experience pain in generalities. We experience it individually.Slide19

He understands your mother-pain when your five-year-old leaves for kindergarten, when a bully picks on your fifth-grader, when your daughter calls to say that the new baby has Down syndrome.

He knows your mother-rage when a trusted babysitter sexually abuses your two-year-old, when someone gives your thirteen-year-old drugs, when someone seduces your seventeen-year-old.

He knows all that. He's been there. He's been lower than all that. Slide20

He's not waiting for us to be perfect. Perfect people don't need a Savior. He came to save his people in their imperfections. He is the Lord of the living, and the living make mistakes.

He's not embarrassed by us, angry at us, or shocked. He wants us in our brokenness, in our unhappiness, in our guilt and our grief.

We know that this world is a dark place sometimes, but we need not walk in darkness. (Chieko N. Okazaki, Lighten Up, Preface; p. 174)Slide21

 Luke 22:39–44


helped the Savior have the strength to do Heavenly Father’s will

?What are some of the ways in which Heavenly Father might strengthen us?Did the Savior ever offer any ‘average’ prayers? (look at vs 44)FIRST HAND ACCOUNT: in Doctrine and Covenants 19:16-19 The AtonementSlide26

Elder David A.


of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles told of an experience in which he visited with a young, newlywed couple in the hospital. The husband was suffering from cancer, and at the conclusion of the visit, he asked Elder

Bednar for a blessing. Elder Bednar consented but first posed the following questions, which he had not planned on asking nor had considered previously:“Do you have the faith not to be healed? If it is the will of our Heavenly Father that you are transferred by death in your youth to the spirit world to continue your ministry, do you have the faith to submit to His will and not be healed?”Elder Bednar added:“We recognized a principle that applies to every devoted disciple: strong faith in the Savior is submissively accepting of His will and timing in our lives—even if the outcome is not what we hoped for or wanted”

(“That We Might ‘Not … Shrink’ (D&C 19:18)” [Church Educational System devotional for young adults, Mar. 3, 2013]; LDS.org).

But if Not…Slide27

But if Not…

“Our scriptures and our history are replete with accounts of God’s great men and women who believed that He would deliver them, 

but if not,

 they demonstrated that they would trust and be true.“Our God will deliver us from ridicule and persecution, but if not. … Our God will deliver us from sickness and disease, but if not. … 

He will deliver us from loneliness, depression, or fear, 

but if not. … Our God will deliver us from threats, accusations, and insecurity, 

but if not. … 


will deliver us from death or impairment of loved ones, 

but if



will trust in the Lord.


will have faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, knowing that if we do all we can do, we will, in His time and in His way, be delivered and receive all that He has

Doctrine and Covenants 45:3-5Slide30

“For many years I thought of the Savior’s experience in the garden and on the cross as places where a large mass of sin was heaped upon Him. Through the words of prophets, however, my view has changed. The Atonement was an intimate, personal experience in which Jesus came to know how to help each of us individually…

He knows our weaknesses. But more than

that, He knows how to help us if we come to Him in faith.”Merrill J. Bateman“A Pattern for All”Ensign, October 2005The AtonementSlide31
