Garden of Gethsemane - Israel Tours

Consider the olive trees present which could have been young saplings on the night Jesus came to the garden with his disciples after the Last Supper

Tours to Israel often include some of the most well-known Christian sites in the world, such as the Garden of Gethsemane. Perhaps one of the most interesting things to consider is that the olive trees present in the Garden of Gethsemane could have possibly been young saplings on the night Jesus came to the garden with his disciples after the Last Supper (Matt 26:36, Mark 14:32 and John 18:1). Though the Garden is now covered with well-kept flower beds, the Garden of Gethsemane would have been an olive grove which held an olive oil press-Gethsemane in Greek. Built over earlier churches in the 1920s, The Church of All Nations ha beautiful mosaics that relate the events of that night-Jesus praying (Mark 14:35-36), Judas betraying Jesus (Matt 26:48) and Peter cutting off the ear of the servant of the High Priest (Mark 14:47). If you visit the Garden of Gethsemane on a Holy Land tour, you may want to stop at the less-frequently visited grove across the lane, where visitors can arrange to privately worship.
