Did JESUS actually sweat blood? There has been more than one commentary written trying to rationalize this, but it-and they-are wrong. Here's the verse, as found in the KJV: "And being in an agony he prayed more earnestly: and his sweat was as it were great drops of blood falling down to the ground." Note that it says"his sweat WAS AS IF..." Now, what does the GREEK say? 'hidros'= sweat 'ginomai'= became, came into being, was(state of being) 'hosei'= like as, as, as if, resembling As a steelworker, I've sweatted so profusely that it dripped off my chin and nose at a rate of about 2 drops a second. Same for when I played football and boxed. Also, even a minor head wound above the eyebrows bleeds quite profusely for a few minutes, and, mixed with sweat, appears to be a torrent. Plainly, Scripture is saying Jesus SWEATTED so profusely that it ran like blood. And He had a BEARD, which multiplied the effect!
