Luke 22:44 talks about Jesus Christ's experience while he was in the Garden of Gethsemane. During a time when an angel visits him to strengthen him he begins to sweat blood. I would like to understand better the significance of this verse:
44 And being in an agony he prayed more earnestly: and his sweat was as it were great drops of blood falling down to the ground.
- Did he literally bleed through his pores as could be interpreted from this verse?
- What would cause him to sweat blood during a prayer to his Father?
- What is the spiritual meaning behind this sweat of blood that came from his body in the Garden of Gethsemane?
- Was he feeling pain that required an angel to strengthen him in order to bear what he was feeling?
