“They went to a place called Gethsemane.” [Mark 14:32]
Gethsemane – "olive press"
The valley represents the place where all the nations of the earth will one day be gathered. Joel 3:12
That Jesus’ closest followers failed is realism in Scripture we all need to know. Mark 14:28
Garden of Gethsemane – John was very intentional in making the connection of Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection to an earlier garden.
