Gethsemane is the garden where Jesus prayed for perhaps hours with breaks in between. It is believed that emotions can lead to a persons death. The Bible says that Jesus' blood actually came out of His pores as he prayed. This would indicate that He was dealing with intense emotions; as He was praying about going to the cross. He wasn't afraid of dying because the Bible says, He talked about His resurrection etc. So, what would lead Christ Jesus, who was both fully man and and fully God, in the flesh  to have such intense emotions while praying?

May be it was the fact that He was becoming sin for the world. The sinless Christ, was taking on our sins, that we might victory in Him.    Hebrews 4:15

The Bible says that The wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus. Romans 6:23

Victory?  How so?

We have Victory in Christ when we trust Him with our lives. We may physically walk through the door of death,  if the rapture  of the New Testament Church doesn't call us into the air to meet Christ first.  1 Thessalonians 4: 13-18  We have victory over sin. The moment we ask Jesus to take over our lives, the chains of sin are broken. We have victory in the reality of knowing the moment we trust Christ the Holy Spirit begins to teach us in order that we begin to look like the person that God intended when he placed Adam & Eve in the garden.

So, is Gethsemane a garden of victory? Oh yes. In Christ alone.  Hallelujah
