The Sufferings of the Savior – Scripture Chain

Recently, I was shown a “scripture chain” that was very inspiring.  (Thanks Bro. Moon) First, a “scripture chain” is a chain or group of scriptures, one leading to the next.  These chains are limited only by one’s creativity and ability to find common threads through the canon.

I’m going to list the chain below and encourage anyone, who is so inspired, to mark this chain in your own scriptures. The title given to this chain is: “The Suffering of the Savoir in the Garden of Gethsemane.”

As I mentioned, I was moved by these scriptures and what I found about His sufferings. I invite you to look through these scriptures and post below the feeling you encounter as you read.

Big comment, small comment, doesn’t matter. I would love to hear from you.

Starting in Luke 22: 44

44 And being in an agony he prayed more earnestly: and his sweat was as it were great drops of blood falling down to the ground.


Doctrine & Covenants 19:16-19

16 For behold, I, God, have suffered these things for all, that theymight not suffer if they would repent;

17 But if they would not repent they must suffer even as I;

18 Which suffering caused myself, even God, the greatest of all, to tremble because of pain, and to bleed at every pore, and to suffer both body and spirit—and would that I might not drink the bittercup, and shrink—

19 Nevertheless, glory be to the Father, and I partook and finished my preparations unto the children of men.


Doctrine & Covenants 18:11

11 For, behold, the Lord your Redeemer suffered death in the flesh; wherefore he suffered the pain of all men, that all men might repent and come unto him.


Mosiah 3:7

7And lo, he shall suffer temptations, and pain of body, hunger,thirst, and fatigue, even more than man can suffer, except it be unto death; for behold, blood cometh from every pore, so great shall be his anguish for the wickedness and the abominations of his people.


Alma 7:13

13 Now the Spirit knoweth all things; nevertheless the Son of God suffereth according to the flesh that he might take upon him the sins of his people, that he might blot out their transgressions according to the power of his deliverance; and now behold, this is the testimony which is in me.


Isaiah 53:5

5 But he was wounded for our transgressionshe was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.


Back to Luke 22:44
