The Word, The Cup, The Prayer of Jesus

The Word, The Cup, The Prayer of Jesus


The Word and God were both at the beginning, but the Word is the utterance of God.

Jn 1:1-5, Prov. 8:22-30, Jn 1:1-4

Proverbs 8:22-30 (Read Below)


Jehovah [h]possessed me in [i]the beginning of his way,

[j]Before his works of old.


I was set up from everlasting, from the beginning,

Before the earth was.


When there were no depths, I was brought forth,

When there were no fountains abounding with water.


Before the mountains were settled,

Before the hills was I brought forth;


While as yet he had not made the earth, nor the fields,

Nor the [k]beginning of the dust of the world.


When he [l]established the heavens, I was there:

When he set a circle upon the face of the deep,


When he made firm the skies above,

When the fountains of the deep became strong,


When he gave to the sea [m]its bound,

That the waters should not transgress his commandment,

When he [n]marked out the foundations of the earth;


Then I was by him, as a master workman;

And I [o]was daily his delight,

[p]Rejoicing always before him,


[q]Rejoicing in his habitable earth;

And my delight was with the sons of men.



The word Cup is often used metaphorically signifying trials and uncertainties.

This was a trying crisis so Jesus sought the Father’s guidance, willing to abide by divine decisions.

Luke 22:41-44 (Read Below)

41 And he was parted from them about a stone’s cast; and he kneeled down and prayed, 42 saying, Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done. 43 [a]And there appeared unto him an angel from heaven, strengthening him. 44 And being in an agony he prayed more earnestly; and his sweat became as it were great drops of blood falling down upon the ground


Jesus said to Simon Peter, am I not to drink the Cup that the Father has given me? Jn 18:11

Jesus said how will the scripture be fulfilled, that say this is the way it must be. Mt 26: 54

Predestined (Isaiah 53: 1-12) 

Isaiah 53: 4-8 (Read Below)

4 Surely he hath borne our [f]griefs, and carried our sorrows; yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. 5 But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed. 6 All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and Jehovah hath [g]laid on him the iniquity of us all.

7 He was oppressed, yet when he was afflicted he opened not his mouth; as a lamb that is led to the slaughter, and as a sheep that before its shearers is dumb, so he opened not his mouth. 8 


John 17

Jesus prayed for the disciples, their followers, and us

John 17: 20-21(Read Below)

20 Neither for these only do I [a]pray, but for them also that believe on me through their word; 21 that they may all be one; even as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be in us: that the world may believe that thou didst send me.
