“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”. (Luke 22:44)

It is interesting that Luke is the only one of the gospel writers to mention that Jesus’ sweat was “great drops of blood.” This is probably because Luke was a physician (Col. 4:14), and this fact had special significance to him. There have been documented medical cases of people actually sweating drops of blood under extreme emotional pressure.

Luke also is the only writer to mention that an angel strengthened Jesus. The other time this happened was when Jesus fasted for forty days in the wilderness, and the devil tempted Him. The Bible says that angels ministered unto Him. (Mark 1:13.) Here, too, He needed supernatural strength to endure His sufferings.

The use of the words “as it were” might also mean that the sweat of Jesus was only comparable to blood in consistency or size, but it certainly underscores the effect Jesus’ agony had on His physical body. His sufferings for us were more than just physical. In the garden, He suffered emotionally, almost to the point of death.

As Luke records, an angel had to come and give Him strength or the emotional struggle alone would have killed Him. Living in this world is not easy, and I am sure you have had some difficult and maybe even some tragic times in your life. However, have you ever been so emotionally stressed that you actually started sweating blood? This is what Jesus went through for you.

He took all your emotional pain and distress so that you could be free. If you have any doubt that He wants you to be happy and free of cares today, remember the blood He shed for you in the garden.
