Mark 14:35-36

Context
14:35 Going a little farther, he threw himself to the ground and prayed that if it were possible the hour would pass from him. 14:36 He said, “Abba, 1  Father, all things are possible for you. Take this cup 2  away from me. Yet not what I will, but what you will.”

1 tn The word means “Father” in Aramaic.

2 sn This cup alludes to the wrath of God that Jesus would experience (in the form of suffering and death) for us. See Ps 11:6; 75:8-9; Isa 51:17, 19, 22 for this figure.
