Gethsemane is most widely known as the place where Jesus Christ prayed while His disciples slept the night before He was crucified. It is located in Jerusalem at the foot of the Mount of Olives. Gethsemane is also the same place that Jesus was betrayed by Judas. "The Garden of Gethsemane "Gethsemane, from the Greek word pronounced geth-say-man-ay, meaning oil press, was the name given to an olive orchard at the foot of The Mount Of Olives. It seems to have been one of the favorite places that Jesus Christ visited, and was the scene of one of the most dramatic events of Bible History on The Fateful Night before the Crucifixion." -(Wayne Blank) And they came to a place which was named Gethsemane: and he saith to his disciples, "Sit ye here, while I shall pray."Mark 14:32 Bible Verses About Gethsemane: In the Book of Matthew Matthew 26:36 Then cometh Jesus with them unto a place called Gethsemane, and saith unto the disciples, Sit ye here, while I go and pray yonder. Matthew 26:37 And he took with him Peter and the two sons of Zebedee, and began to be sorrowful and very heavy. Matthew 26:38 Then saith he unto them, My soul is exceeding sorrowful, even unto death: tarry ye here, and watch with me. Matthew 26:39 And he went a little farther, and fell on his face, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt. In the Book of Mark Mark 14:32 And they came to a place which was named Gethsemane: and he saith to his disciples, Sit ye here, while I shall pray. Mark 14:33 And he taketh with him Peter and James and John, and began to be sore amazed, and to be very heavy; Mark 14:34 And saith unto them, My soul is exceeding sorrowful unto death: tarry ye here, and watch. Mark 14:35 And he went forward a little, and fell on the ground, and prayed that, if it were possible, the hour might pass from him. Mark 14:36 And he said, Abba, Father, all things are possible unto thee; take away this cup from me: nevertheless not what I will, but what thou wilt.
