Context/Discussion/Comments:

This is a familiar story to all who believe and one can see from the outline and text that this account becomes very detailed. I would encourage you to use the Outline and the Scripture referenced to read this account of His agony and acts at the cross. Then consider all this in light of His command to Remember Me and celebrate the Lord’s Supper until He returns.
