This sermon was preached at our Maundy Thursday communion service and was a reflection on the suffering and deep agony which our Saviour faced in Gethsemane on the eve of His crucifixion. Taking the events of that night in three parts, the sermon points out that our Lord fought a mighty battle, won a great victory, and prepared the way for a glorious redemption. I trust it will be a blessing to you as you reflect on what our Saviour faced as our Sin-Bearer, our Scapegoat, and the Lamb of God who was slain as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.
