Did Jesus Waver at the End?

Interesting thought from the introduction to “Theological Essays” (published in 1867) regarding how Jesus showed a couple moments of “distress of mind”:

Panegyrists have described the bravery with which some martyrs have endured their sufferings before the eyes of their admirers. Jesus, who suffered not with a view to human applause, but to human consolation and salvation, was not ashamed or afraid to express all which he felt, and his faithful biographers were not ashamed or afraid to record it.

(Pages xvii-xviii.)
