This is undoubtedly the most astounding promise Jesus could make. Anything? Ask for anything? However, we doubt it. It’s kind of like the Daddy who says to his little girl, “I’ll give you anything, honey! I’ll give you the sun, the moon and the stars!” Everyone knows he can’t and she doesn’t want the sun, the moon and the stars anyway. We’re kind of like that with His extraordinary promise. He made it the night before His crucifixion, when He gave His last instructions to His disciples, and, well, He probably got carried away in His passion, His apprehension of what was to come upon Him.
