Gerry Breshears :: Why did Jesus say “not my will, but yours be done”?

  • “This a plan that he and the Father have put together from eternity, that he’ll come and die for the sins of the world, and here he says, ‘I don’t want to do it.’” Why would Jesus say that? Does that mean he didn’t want to go through with his plan for atonement? “He is praying what in one sense would be a sinful prayer,” says Dr. Gerry Breshears, Author and Professor of Theology at Western Seminary. “It’s not sinful, because that’s not where he stops.”
