About cells and tissues: Cells: Billions of cells in our body, in fact nature has designed cells to carry out every necessary bodily task. (Ex: some work when our brain tells them to perform) Tissue: When many cells of the same or different types are arranged together they form a Tissue.

13 The Agony & Physiological phenomenon in Gethsemane Luke 22:39-46 Reasonedtruth.com 13 Physician Perspective Contd... HEMATIDROSIS: The clinical term is hematidrosis. Around the sweat glands, there are multiple blood vessels in a net-like form. Under the pressure of great stress the vessels constrict. Then as the anxiety passes the blood vessels dilate to the point of rupture. The blood goes into the sweat glands. As the sweat glands are producing a lot of sweat, it pushes the blood to the surface - coming out as droplets of blood mixed with sweat.

Microscopic observation of Inflammation: At first the blood cells maintain their normal position in the central axis stream but soon the distinction between clear outer zone in the small vessels disappears, and Leucocytes begins to stick to damaged Endothelium. In the most cases injury causes leakage of plasma portions long before Leucocytes occurs the escape of plasma is purely passive affair and this is partly true for Leucocytes which how ever also active amoebid movement called DIAPEDISIS. A Leucocytes can passes through a vessel wall is 2 to 13 minutes, this passing direction is through damage tissue & this movements is Chemotaxis. Injury also caused platelets to adhere to Endothelium and each other, thus forming platelets clumps or Thrombi. [Note: Sweat Sickness during 1485-1551 England, as epidemic disease]

17 The Agony & Physiological phenomenon in Gethsemane Luke 22:39-46 Reasonedtruth.com 17 Possible Contrast Bible history can be summarized with Four gardens: (1) Eden, where sin entered (2) Gethsemane, where Christ yielded to death (3) Calvary, where He died and was buried (John 19:41–42) (4) The heavenly paradise garden (Rev. 21:1ff). The first Adam sinned in a Garden and was condemned to living by the sweat of his brow (Gen. 3:19). Jesus, the Last Adam, obeyed the Father in a Garden and conquered Adams sin (Rom. 5:12–21).

Cup which He denied to drink: Jesus staggered in Gethsemane as he gazed into the cup he must drink, for taking it meant he would drink mans sin to the full and would drink the wrath of God which mans sin deserved. Christ asked that the cup be taken away because he was truly man as well as God. We must also realize that his request for another way came from the two things he saw in the cup. First, it was a cup full of sin. (Galatians: 5:19) Second, he saw that it was a cup full of wrath. (2 Corinthians 5:21). The drinking also made him a curse. (Galatians 3:13) Gazing into the cup, Jesus saw Hell opened for him, and he staggered (Isaiah 51:17, 22). It is no wonder that we see the blood-like sweat and the tears, that we hear him crying out for deliverance. It is no wonder, as we read in Luke, that the Father sent an angel to strengthen him (Luke 22:43).

21 The Agony & Physiological phenomenon in Gethsemane Luke 22:39-46 Reasonedtruth.com 21 Conclusion You see that death was not voluntary for Christ as far as the flesh was concerned, but it was voluntary, because by it, according to the will of the Father, salvation and life were given to all men. His sufferings were only intended to teach the human race how to love one another. He learned obedience in the school of suffering His obedience of course was toward Gods holy law but it was also and obedience unto death, even the death of the cross (Phil. 2:8). As partakers of the life of Christ, we must realize there is only one acceptable posturesubmission to him who gave himself for us. (Romans 12:1)
