Was fear a part of Christ's agony?
#11
To build a teeny bit on what sister Lisa has said. I would think fear is the product of danger close at hand and the release of adrenilin  and other chemicals to stimulate the fight or flight response. Christ was fully human so His response would have been the same as ours. We might compare Our Lord to a criminal that knows he is about to be executed, tomorrow. He, the criminal has known since his sentencing that this day is coming. Let's pretend the criminal has repented and come to the One True Faith, but aren't there still involuntary responses, which much as he tries to sublimate rise to the surface? Our Lord being perfect is different, but His glands work just like ours, and the physical responses would be the same. Just my two shiny coopers, and I ain't no theologian,
