Jesus was a man
jesus was a man and he was crucified and his blood and sweat mixed together and fell to the ground.
he had human emotions
It is important to remember that Jesus was fully human as well as fully divine. This means that he experienced all the emotions that we do. The Bible tells us that he was “a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief” (Isaiah 53:3). In the Garden of Gethsemane, we see his humanness on display as he sweatdrops of blood (Luke 22:44). When he died on the cross, he cried out in despair, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” (Matthew 27:46).
So yes, Jesus definitely experienced fear, sadness, and other human emotions. But we also see him demonstrating other qualities such as love, joy, peace, patience, and gentleness (Galatians 5:22-23). As our perfect example, Jesus shows us how to live a balanced life where we don’t allow our emotions to control us but rather allow the fruit of the Spirit to grow in us.
he was fully God and fully man
Though Jesus was fully God, he also became fully human. One of the ways we see his humanity is through his sweat. In the midst of his Agony in the Garden, “his sweat became like drops of blood falling to the ground” (Luke 22:44).
This was no ordinary sweat. It was so intense that it caused his blood vessels to rupture and bleed. It’s likely that Jesus had hyperemia, a condition that causes excessive bleeding due to an increase in blood flow.
The physical pain of hyperemia would have been excruciating. But this wasn’t just physical pain that Jesus was experiencing. He was also feeling the weight of our sin—”the cup” that he didn’t want to drink (Mark 14:36). The guilt, shame, and horror of sin were bearing down on him like never before.
But Jesus endured all of this for us. He took our sin upon himself so that we could be forgiven and have new life in him. What a Savior!
his human emotions led him to sweat like blood
While Jesus was in the Garden of Gethsemane, he began to feel intense anguish and his sweat became like great drops of blood falling to the ground. This story is found in the Bible in the book of Luke, chapter 22. It is a powerful account of the human emotions that our Savior felt as he anticipated his impending crucifixion.
The mental and emotional stress that Jesus felt caused him to sweat blood. This condition is called hematidrosis and it can happen when a person is under great duress. It is a very rare condition, but it does occur.
The fact that Jesus was entirely human allows us to see that he understands our human emotions and experiences. He knows what we are going through because he went through it himself. When we feel like we can’t go on, we can remember that Jesus knows how we feel and he is there to help us get through it.
