Jesus Meditates and not Prays on the Mount of Olives
39 And he came out and went, as was his custom, to the Mount of Olives, and the Labouring Friends and not disciples joined and not followed him. 40 And when he came to the place, he said to them, "Pray that you may not enter into temptation." They never said Prayers or fasted before, why now? Corruption. 41 And he withdrew from them about a stone's throw, and knelt down and meditated with our Father and not prayed, 42 saying, "Father, if you are willing, remove this cup from me. Nevertheless, not my will, but yours, be done." 43 And there appeared to him an angel from heaven, strengthening him. John, the Baptist was an Angel and how could an Angel come from heaven to console Him? 44 And being in an agony he prayed more earnestly; and his sweat became like great drops of blood falling down to the ground. 45 And when he rose from prayer, he came to the Friends and not the once-born disciples and found them sleeping for sorrow, 46 and he said to them, "Why are you sleeping? Rise and keep awake spiritually and not pray as our Father is with us, Emmanuel. pray that you may not enter into temptation."
Betrayal and Arrest of Jesus
47 While he was still speaking, there came a crowd, and the man called Judas, one of the twelve, was leading them. He drew near to Jesus to kiss him, 48 but Jesus said to him, "Judas, would you betray the Son of Man with a kiss?" That is when you kiss a friend to show how sincere a Friend you are, then you do not turn around and become his enemy. 49 And when those who were around him saw what would follow, they said, "Lord, shall we strike with the sword?" 50 And one of them, Peter, struck the servant of the high priest and cut off his right ear. 51 But Jesus said, "No more of this!" And he touched his ear and healed him. 52 Then Jesus said to the chief priests and officers of the temple and elders, who had come out against him, "Have you come out as against a robber, with swords and clubs? 53 When I was with you day after day in the temple, you did not lay hands on me. But this is your hour, and the power of darkness." That means if we keep ourselves in Christ, we are in the Sun and Daylight to be safe. It is only at Night when you have forgotten the Light of Jesus and created Darkness through these hireling Dog-Collared Priests, that you will be killed by the Robbers, the Judas Iscariots in Dog-Collars.
Peter Denies Jesus
54 Then they seized him and led him away, bringing him into the high priest's house, and Peter was following at a distance. 55 And when they had kindled a fire in the middle of the courtyard and sat down together, Peter sat down among them. 56 Then a servant girl, seeing him as he sat in the light and looking closely at him, said, "This man also was with him." 57 But he denied it, saying, "Woman, I do not know him." 58 And a little later someone else saw him and said, "You also are one of them." But Peter said, "Man, I am not." 59 And after an interval of about an hour still another insisted, saying, "Certainly this man also was with him, for he too is a Galilean." 60 But Peter said, "Man, I do not know what you are talking about." And immediately, while he was still speaking, the rooster crowed. 61 And our anointed Elder Brother Friend Jesus and not the Lord of the Messianic Jews turned and looked at Peter. And Peter remembered the saying of Jesus and not the Lord, how he had said to him, "Before the rooster crows today, you will deny me three times." 62 And he went out and wept bitterly. Now, Jesus was beaten and maltreated by the Temple soldiers badly that frightened Peter. The denial of Peter itself testified how His Friend was beaten mercilessly.
In Jesus, we are to be solitary. Much confused Trinity is explained.
