The article discusses the meaning of Jesus Christ's agony in the Garden of Gethsemane. The pagan Celsus antagonized the deity of Jesus when He pleaded to the God the Father to take away his suffering if it is possible. Origen countered Celsus' remarks by emphasizing that immediately after such plea, Jesus said, "But not my will, but yours be done." This demonstrates his firmness and willingness to suffer.
