Fearful Hearts and the Faithful King
Passage: Matthew 26:47–26:56
“They forgot their confident assertions made a few hours before. They forgot that they had declared their willingness to die with their Master. They forgot everything but the danger that stared them in the face. The fear of death overcame them. They ‘forsook him, and fled.’” – J.C. Ryle, Ryle’s Expository Thoughts on the Gospels, Vol. One, 370.
