As I was reflecting on the Easter story recently, something struck me that I have never noticed before: Jesus’ will was different from God’s. In the Garden he prayed ‘not my will, but thine be done.’
I wrote an article about it for the Newfrontiers theology blog, but we had quite some discussions about one of the finer points, and eventually had to use a commentary by Calvin to resolve the issue! I think that’s the first time I’ve ever quoted Calvin (and it was a colleague who sent me the quotation anyway).
What do you think of my conclusion?
