The Mount of Olives

“Now during the day He was teaching in the temple, but at evening He would go out and spend the night on the mount that is called Olivet. And all the people would get up early in the morning to come to Him in the temple to listen to Him.”
~Luke 21:37-38 (NASB)

I find it very interesting that Jesus’ favorite place of intimacy either the Father, also became one of the greatest places of interaction between heaven and earth…

  • Jesus prayed on the Mount of Olives through the night before walking on the water towards the disciples in the boat
  • Jesus prayed on the Mount of Olives before going out and praying for and healing and delivering the masses
  • Jesus rode in on the donkey on the Mount of Olives
  • Jesus tought His disciples about His return and the events leading up to it on the Mount of Olives
  • Jesus ascended to heaven from the Mount of Olives
  • Jesus will return to earth on the Mount of Olives – and when He does, the Mount of Olives will split in two!!
