Poverty
“Foxes have holes, and birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has nowhere to lay His head” (Luke 9:58).

Exhaustion
“Jacob’s well was there; so Jesus, wearied as he was from his journey, was sitting beside the well. It was about the sixth hour” (John 4:6).

Betrayal
“And when his family heard it, they went out to seize him, for they were saying, “He is out of his mind” (Mark 3:21)

Grief
“And when he drew near and saw the city, he wept over it” (Luke 19:41).

He was deeply saddened by the death of loved ones. “Jesus wept” (John 11:35).

He was sorrowed by humanity’s rejection of God. “He was despised and rejected by men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief; and as one from whom men hide their faces He was despised, and we esteemed Him not” (Isaiah 53:3).

Temptation
For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.” (Hebrews 4:15)

Because He Himself has suffered when tempted, He is able to help those who are being tempted.” (Hebrews 2:18)

Suffering
“My soul is very sorrowful, even to death” (Matt. 26:38)

Feeling Forsaken by God
And about the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying, “Eli, Eli, lema sabachthani?” that is, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” (Matthew 27:46)
