    I will buy this book soon, for what I have learned from Brother Brown previously.

    RE: The unique teaching offered by Luke 22:43-44 “Blood”, because of the serious doubts as to these verses’ authenticity, they have been put in brackets and noted by Modern translations (ESV,NASB,NIV,NET,NLT).
    Honest scholar haves nothing to hide. see Mosiah 3:7.

    Christ's agony at Gethsemane is a passage in the Gospel of Luke (22:43–44), Exclude passage,Papyrus 69, Papyrus 75,(175-225) Codex Sinaiticus, Codex Alexandrinus, Codex Vaticanus.

    According to Bart D. Ehrman (1993) these two verses disrupt the literary structure of the scene (the chiasmus), they are not found in the early and valuable manuscripts, and they are the only place in Luke where Jesus is seen to be in agony. Ehrman concludes that they were inserted in order to counter doceticism, the belief that Jesus, as divine, only seemed to suffer.
