Matt. 26; 38,39

“Nor as I will, but as Thou wilt.”

Here we see Jesus kneeling barefoot on a hill in the garden, confronting a winged angel who bears a cross. Three of Jesus’s apostles slumber in the garden, including Peter. Peter holds a sword, is possibly wearing sandals (the others are all barefoot) and his head is being cradled by another apostle. Like most of the illustrations in this book, an attempt has been made to use Middle Eastern settings, but the people depicted all appear to be white and beardless, and not at all like Palestinian Jews.

This engraving is by Julius Schnorr von Karolsfeld.
