Disciples within the Backyard is an outline of Christ’s three dearest buddies asleep in Gethsemane with their chins to their chests. Someplace exterior the body is Christ complaining about one thing. He turns to them for assist and luxury on this second of intense agony. Night time persists and his heavy eyed cohort joins him. Finally they abandon him for a nap. The duty at hand is just too grand for them to confront—so relaxation it’s! They’ve settled for a chilly patch of floor.
