Show Summary

664

We find in no history any human creature oppressed with such sorrow as to sweat blood, therefore this history of Christ is wonderful; no man can understand or conceive what his bloody sweat is. And it is more wonderful, that the Lord of grace and of wrath, of life and of death, should be so weak, and made so sorrowful, as to be constrained to seek for solace and comfort of poor and miserable sinners, and to say: Ah, loving disciples? sleep not, wake yet a little, and talk one with another, that at least I may hear some people are about me. Here the psalm was rightly applied, which says: ’Thou hast made him a little lower than the angels,’ etc. Ah, that bloody sweat was pressed out of our blessed, sweet Savior Christ Jesus, through the immeasurable heavy burden which lay on his innocent back; namely, the sins of the universal world, against which, doubtless, he prayed: ’O Lord, rebuke me not in thine anger, neither chasten me in thy hot displeasure.’
