Garden of Gethsemane
Well known to Jesus and the Twelve disciples, Gethsemane, a garden situated at the foot of the Mount of Olives in Jerusalem would be forever remembered in history as the place Jesus and his disciples prayed the night before His crucifixion. “He went a little farther, and fell on the ground, and prayed that if it were possible, the hour might pass from Him. And He said, “Abba, Father, all things are possible for You. Take this cup away from Me; nevertheless, not what I will, but what You will.”, (Mark 14:35-36).
In the Psalm of David, the Lord anointing ones head with oil holds a deep symbolic meaning, for the use of olive oil to anoint kings, priest and restoration of health, strikingly exemplifies the prophecy that Jesus would carry the burdens and sufferings of mankind in no other place than the Garden of Gethsemane at the foot of the Mount of Olives.
