(Mount of Olives) Aramaic gath shemani, "oil press" -- a garden or olive grove outside of Jerusalem where the agony, betrayal, and arrest of Jesus took place (Matthew 26:36-56, Mark 14:32-53, Luke 22:39-54, John 18:1-12).
The image of the gethsemane on the slope of the Mount of Olives where Jesus went the night before his crucifixion provides a vivid picture of his suffering. The weight of the world's sins pressed down upon him like the heavy slab of the olive crusher. His sweat, "like drops of blood falling to the ground" (Luke 22:44), flowed from him like olive oil.
Gethsemane (also spelled Gethsemani) was the garden where, according to the New Testament and Christian traditions, Jesus watched, prayed, and suffered for the sins of the world the night before he was crucified (see Atonement). According to Luke 22:43â€“44, Jesus' anguish in Gethsemane was so deep that "his sweat was as it were great drops of blood falling down to the ground." Gethsemane was also where Christ was betrayed by the disciple Judas Iscariot.
