The reason behind Jesus’ vow of abstinence of food is one of the most intriguing observations in biblical revelation. Jesus may have intended to make it clear to His disciples that His vicarious death is irrevocable. He prepares Himself with a resolute will to drink the bitter cup that the Father offers Him.

He bore His cross so that we could carry our own cross.
