Notes

At Gethsemane on the night of his betrayal, Jesus prayed three times to God the Father, "... O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless, not as I will, but as thou wilt." Some point to Psalm 22:2 as a prophecy of the supernatural darkness that covered the land during the crucifixion. Jesus was on the cross for three hours of daylight, and three hours of darkness. Luke 23:44 "And it was about the sixth hour, and there was a darkness over all the earth until the ninth hour.
