You wrote from the viewpoint of our Lord in a creative and touching way.

I think you covered the topic well without using the word drip.

Thanks for sharing.
Very creative story about Jesus praying in the garden.

For me, however, it wasn't convincing. I cannot imagine Jesus arguing with God about dying for us. His words in John seem contrary to your dialogue. In John 10:11 Jesus uses a picture of himself, telling the crowd "I am the good shepherd. I am willing to die for my sheep." And again in John 10:17-18, he states, "I am willing to give up my life in order that I may receive it back again. No-one takes my life away from me. I give it up of my own free will. I have the right to give it up, and I have the right to take it back. This is what my Father has commanded me to do."

You are a talented writer. The character of Jesus just didn't draw me in.
Congratulations on placing 3 in your level and 21 overall!
I love this. Unlike the previous commenter, I very much could see Jesus having this discussion. Part of what makes his love so special is he does understand human emotion as he has been through it himself. This reminds me a bit of my very first EC! I think you did a fantastic job on this piece (as did the judges, this was a super competitive week) Awesome writing!
