Gethsemane

 

(Photo taken Summer 2013 of the Garden of Gethsemane, on the north side of the Church of All Nations. It is located at the foot of Mt. Olive and is the site of olive trees that are thousands of years old. On the south side of the church are excavated olive & wine presses. This could be where Jesus prayed in agony, knowing He would soon suffer a spiritual separation from the Father that we deserved, but He did not. It is also believed to be the place of His arrest, led by Judas.)
