When Jesus says, “Now my soul is troubled,” we might be tempted to skip over this part of the Bible as quickly as possible. We want to think of Jesus as confident and secure. We want him to be a fearless leader. We want Jesus to show power more than compassion. However, there are good reasons for Jesus to feel troubled for creation. Helping the disciples and followers understand his journey is both important and impossible. They cannot accept the path of Jesus until after it has happened, yet their eternal lives rest in the reality of a journey only Jesus can see and accept.

Scripture: John 12:20-33
