The Temptations of Jesus #5: The Dilemma in the Garden
Sep. 16, 1962
Sep. 16, 1962. Running time: 32:08. A sermon on Jesus in Gethsemane. All the encounters with the tempter are outlined here. It is not that Jesus was afraid to die but to face death meant he had to come to grips with the fact of death since death is the denial of the future. How then can that which is literal truth have an extended time interval in which to become literal fact? Thurman says that the crest of life is repeatedly found when agonies of life are not relieved and the peace of God comes in the midst of the breaking heart and the anguishing spirit.
