Mount of Olives
I have the honor of naming it: MOUNT OF OLIVES.
The specific place is mentioned 12 times in the New Testament.
It was place where Jesus taught his disciples (Matthew 24)
it was the place Jésus went to pray before He was arrested to be crucified (Luke 22:39)
It was the place where the disciples saw Jesus for the last time after His resurrection (Acts 1:912) & stayed before the day of Pentecost (Acts 1:12).
But one of MY FAVORITE things I noticed... was often after Jesus taught in the cities..His constant retreat was AT the Mount of Olives (John 8:1, Luke 21:37).
This place... was in a way, Jésus’s “safe place”. Crazy to think even He had one of His own. In a world where we are searching to feel “safe” again, that longing desperate desire to know you have a place where you can become undone, recharge, refocus, rehabilitate, and return...even in that - Jesus still “gets us”. And I’m so so ... so very thankful He does..
