Mount of Olives
Last updated 6 years ago
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.
