Listen to The Jesus Story: Gethsemane and beyond

When the supper was ended, Jesus took Peter, James and John to an olive grove called Gethsemane.

Knowing the awful death that awaited him, Jesus suffered a time of agonising prayer.

The song ‘The Moon Shines’ portrays the loneliness of Jesus as he struggles to come to terms with what he has to do.

It was shortly after this that he was betrayed by Judas’s kiss.

Jesus was arrested and taken to the High Priest’s house.

All the disciples deserted him, but Peter and John followed and gained access to the High Priest’s courtyard.

Peter had boasted that he would never deny his Lord, but Jesus had predicted that before a cock crowed he would deny him three times.
