3.       Garden of Gethsemane
         o   Jesus faced with choice – to run, or follow God’s will.  He made the choice to stand up and 
               follow the path that was set before him.  After this point, his path points directly to cross.
         o   “Jesus went to the cross not because God the Father needed him to die.  He went to the          
               cross because in our brokenness humanity could not let him live.”
