Subject/Title of Window: Agony in the Garden

Brief Description of Subject: Jesus looks to Heaven as he prays at night in the Garden of Gethsemane. This is Jesus' struggle (agony), praying and discussing with God the Father, before accepting his sacrifice and being arrested: “Then he said to them, ‘My soul is overwhelmed with sorrow to the point of death. Stay here and keep watch with me.’ Going a little farther, he fell with his face to the ground and prayed, ‘My Father, if it is possible, may this cup be taken from me. Yet not as I will, but as you will.’” (Matthew 26)

This set of windows (0, 1, 11, 12) originally came from a church in Minnesota and were placed in the first building of the Bethesda Bible Church at 760 Lowell Street in Ypsilanti in 1968. This first church was built in 1962 and is now an apartment complex called Belfry Apartments. The construction of the current church on Huron St. began in 1989 and was completed in 1993. The window set was moved to the new building and installed above the Baptistry.

The MSGC is a constantly evolving database. Not all the data that has been collected by volunteers has been sorted and entered. Not every building has been completely documented.

All images in the Index are either born-digital photographs of windows or buildings or are scans of slides, prints, or other published sources. These images have been provided by volunteers and the quality of the material varies widely.

If you have any questions, additions or corrections, or think you can provide better images and are willing to share them, please contact
