Destiny's Cup

Jesus kneels among the olive trees of the Garden of Gethsemane to pray for strength to endure His upcoming passion. While at prayer, He asks the Father to let this cup of suffering the crucifixion will impose on Him pass, if it be His will. The Father did not let the cup of the passion pass, but sent an angel with another cup to minister to Him.The angel can be found in the foliage of the olive trees above Christ.
