Mount of Olives - After the Last Supper, Jesus led his disciples to the Garden of Gethsemane and asked them to keep watch while he prayed. On the lower slopes of the Mount of Olives there stands to this day a stately grove of eight ancient olive trees. These trees and their fruit have given this site it’s name, Gethsemane: gat-shamna is “olive press” in Aramaic.

The Dominus Flevit Church is located on the Mount of Olives immediately facing the Old City of Jerusalem. The name Dominus Flevit, translates from Latin as "The Lord Wept". The church is fashioned in the shape of a teardrop. This is a reminder of Jesus weeping as recorded in Luke 19:41.
