This close up of the stained glass windows is world famous and this piece of art work is priceless. Jesus in the garden of Gethsemani or the mount of olives. It is the scene of Christ's agony and betrayal. Math 26:36. Jesus fell prostrate for the 3rd time in prayer, "My Father if it is possible let this cup pass me by, still let it be as you would have it, not as I." Look closely and you can see his disciples sleeping behind him. He asked them to remain awake while he prayed, but they did not. Fially he said, "The hour is upon us when the Son of Man will be handed over to the evil men by his betrayer." Posted by Picasa
