In this article, Ray Dillard presents a sermon on Matthew 26:1-46. The imagery of the “cup of God’s wrath” has deep Old Testament roots. Dillard maintains that Jesus was filled with such fear and anguish at the thought of the cup He would have to drink that He asked His Father to take it away if possible. Dillard points out, in Matthew 26, we have two cups laid down side by side: the one cup — the wine of God’s fury — the one Christ would take for us, and the other cup, the one shared in remembrance of Him, the cup of the forgiveness of sins.
