“Cup of Loneliness” by George Jones

The Cross and the Jukebox

In this special episode of “The Cross and the Jukebox,” we look at one crucial aspect of our Lord’s suffering: the isolation and loneliness he bore from Gethsemane to the grave. As we listen to George Jones’ singing about the cup of loneliness, we’ll ponder why Jesus uses the language of “cup” when speaking of the cross, and about what that has to do with the crosses Jesus promises us we’ll all have to carry between here and resurrection day.
