Mount of Olives

The Mount of Olives, often times called Olivet, is a double hill that stood outside Jerusalem. Throughout his final visit to Jerusalem the Master's customary retreat was Olivet. One comes down through the eastern gate into the Kedron Valley and climbs up the Mount of Olives on the other side. Yonder, across the Kidron below him, he could look on Jerusalem. 'On the Hill of Olives opposite the temple'. At the foot of the Mount of Olives ran the brook Kedron, rich with gardens and pomegranate trees and beds of many vegetables.

The Mount of Olives was alive with people day and night. Pilgrims would sleep in tents or under the moon, rolling themselves in their cloaks. The Lord and his apostles spent the nights of Holy Week in the open, on the eastern slope of the eastern hill, the slope which looks down on Bethany. It was a long walk from that farther ridge of the Mount of Olives to the city gates lying to the south of the Temple area, and below the steep streets over Mount Zion. Gethsemane is on the Mount of Olives.

Still one can see the white-washed sepulchers which quickly strew the Kidronís flanks. Today on Olivet the olive trees are present still.
