"After singing a hymn, they went out to the Mount of Olives" (found in both Matthew 26:30 and Mark 14:26)
Do you have as much fun imagining this as I do?
I absolutely love music (with singing being one of my very favorite forms) and I love the sound of men singing together. Here we have Jesus and His disciples singing together during a very challenging time.
Did they sing in harmony? Was somebody of key? What was the song like?
Those questions aren't that important but I do find them fun to think about.
What I am realizing though and really noticing is that this happens right at the time that Judas is off betraying Jesus. This is (or at least could have been) a very stressful time for Jesus especially and all of them to some degree. Yet they stopped to sing.
Did they find singing encouraging and uplifting? I know when I am stressed, tired or in some way feeling emotional (sad, angry, joyful, etc) music is always good!
For me this is a very neat thing to notice about Jesus' life. If you haven't been the type to enjoy singing - I hope you will give it a try! It is so fun to sing songs about how great God is, or songs that can encourage us to live more like we should.
