Much of the Easter story takes place at night, in the darkness—the last supper, Jesus’ prayer in the garden, the denial by Peter, and the arrest and trial before religious leaders. Darkness even took over during the day as Jesus hung on the cross.
But in the end, darkness did not prevail! After the night, came the dawn. The light shone in the darkness, and the darkness did not overcome it. Join us on Sunday as we explore how the Easter story moved Out of the Shadows and into the light.

He was experiencing sorrow…and trouble such as He had never known in His earthly life. He asked the three disciples to stay and keep watch with Him. In this hour of His greatest need the Lord wanted those with a sympathetic understanding to be praying with Him. –L.A. Barbieri
In the Old Testament the “cup” has associations of suffering and of the wrath of God…Jesus’ death meant suffering, and because it was a death for sin, there are associations of the wrath of God connected to it… The death he faced was a horrible death, and he experienced the natural human shrinking from undergoing such an ordeal. So he prayed that if it were possible it might be avoided. –L. Morris
