Luke 22:42 Meaning and Commentary

Luke 22:42

Saying, Father, if thou be willing
If it be consistent with thy will of saving sinners, and which thou hast declared to me, and I have undertook to perform: the other evangelists say, "if it be possible"; (See Gill on Matthew 26:39) remove this cup from me;
meaning, either his present sorrows and distress, or his approaching sufferings and death, which he had in view, or both: nevertheless not my will;
as man, for Christ had an human will distinct from, though not contrary to his divine will: but thine be done;
which Christ undertook, and came into this world to do; and it was his meat and drink to do it, and was the same with his own will, as the Son of God; (See Gill on Matthew 26:39), and (See Gill on Matthew 26:42).

41 And He withdrew from them about a stone's throw, and He knelt down and began to pray,
42 saying, "Father, if You are willing, remove this cup from Me; yet not My will, but Yours be done."
43 Now an angel from heaven appeared to Him, strengthening Him.
44 And being in agony He was praying very fervently; and His sweat became like drops of blood, falling down upon the ground.
