Christ Willingly Suffered For Our Sins - Easter Countdown Day 3



Day 3 – Christ willingly “drank the bitter cup” as he performed the Atonement, in the Garden of Gethsemane and on the cross.

Matthew 26:36, 39

“Then cometh Jesus with them unto a place called Gethsemane, and saith unto the disciples, Sit ye here, while I go and pray yonder…And he went a little further, 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.”


Alma 21: 9

“Now Aaron began to open the scriptures unto them concerning the coming of Christ, and also concerning the resurrection of the dead, and that there could be no redemption for mankind save it were through the death and sufferings of Christ, and the atonement of his blood.”

  2. It is a small cup...as in the "bitter cup"... You could also use a bitter herb I guess if you do no have access to sacrament cups.
