Garden of Gethsemane

The Garden of Gethsemane is at the foot of the Mount of Olives, within the walled grounds of the Church of all Nations (also known as the Church of the Agony). Itís a peaceful garden among a grove of ancient olive trees, looking back at the eastern wall of the City of Jerusalem. Remarkably, the Garden of Gethsemane still contains dozens of ancient olive trees that date to approximately 2,000-years-old!

The Garden of Gethsemane is where Jesus prayed the night of his betrayal and arrest (Mark 14:32-50). According to the record in Luke, Christís despair in Gethsemane was so deep that he sweat drops of blood (Luke 22:43-44).
    Then Jesus went with his disciples to a place called Gethsemane, and he said to them, "Sit here while I go over there and pray." (Matthew 26:36)
