22:17 And he took the cup - That cup which used to be brought at the beginning of the paschal solemnity, and said, Take this and divide it among yourselves; for I will not drink - As if he had said, Do not expect me to drink of it: I will drink no more before I die.

    Hi Jenna; I think you might be referring to the Day of the LORD, the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ in power and great glory: "The sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars shall fall from the heavens, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken." That's a lot different than an eclipse! Is that what you were thinking about? The Lord bless you, Sister.

    vs. 54- Following afar off is the major and first sign of backsliding. Those who had the culture of walking behind and not been willing to be known, engaged or effective in the things of the Lord are often prey to the roaring lion who is seeking whom to devour.

    V 36,37, very interesting. Jesus is saying write his gospel down because he is leaving earth and wants future generations to know his Word. Before this point, Apostles were preaching by word of mouth, perhaps because many people could not read. Swords are symbolic, swords of truth 2 witnessed by each other. These swords cut down lies. Jesus, was considered by liars to be transgressing their law.
