381. Did Jesus ask God to save him from crucifixion?
And he went a little farther, and fell on his face, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup
pass from me:
nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt. ...
O my Father, if this cup may not pass away from me, except I drink it, thy will be done. Matthew 26:36-42
And he went forward a little, and fell on the ground, and prayed that, if it were possible, the hour might pass from him. And he said,
Abba, Father, all things are possible unto thee; take away this cup from me: nevertheless not what I will, but what thou wilt. Mark 14:35-36
And he was withdrawn from them about a stone's cast, and kneeled down, and prayed, Saying, Father, if thou be willing,
remove this cup from me: nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done. Luke 22:41-42
Now is my soul troubled; and what shall I say? Father, save me from this hour: but for this cause came I unto this hour. John 12:27
