I was thinking that these reports are more than likely correct, but only from the point of human understanding and thats all we really can do. In knowing that Jesus was both man and God, He must have been given interior and exterior suffering that goes beyond human comprehension. And also knowing all these things beforehand must have been terrible suffering as well. To suffer for all the sins of man in the whole world surely goes beyond mans imagination. How much agony to have sweat blood as He did. How much agony to have asked Hid Father to take that cup from Him. 

  All of this for us, because He loves us.

  Good post Barbara and every blessing to you as well.

  God bless.....
