Church of St. James 2: In Gethsemane the disciples James, John and Peter,

the progenitors of the Jewish Christians, the Baptist Christians, and the Petrine Christians, are of no help to Jesus, 14:32-42. When Jesus is taken captive, all the disciples flee, 14:50.

The Jewish authorities also oppose Jesus, 14:53-65, and while Jesus confesses, Peter denies, 14:66-72. Jesus cannot be arrested until the disciples flee, he cannot be handed over to the Gentiles until Peter has also turned away.

To the physical suffering of Jesus comes the spiritual suffering, because no one makes the attempt to help him. Everyone only tries to save his own skin.
