Sermon on Matthew 26:1-46. The imagery of the “cup of God’s wrath” has deep Old Testament roots. Jesus was filled with such fear and anguish at the thought of the cup He would have to drink. He asked His Father to take it away if possible. “Jesus bowed to the will of His Father as His last act.” “In Matthew 26 we have two cups laid down side by side: the one — the wine of God’s fury — the one Christ would take for us, and the other, the one you and I are going to share this night in remembrance of Him, the cup of the forgiveness of sins.
