Jesus in Garden of Gethsemane
If you are a Christian, the Garden of Gethsemane holds a lot of significance for you. We know it does not rival the cross or the place of the crucifixion, but you would agree that the recorded events in the gospels allow for a sacred reverence for the location of our Lord’s last recorded prayer. So, what if you could walk the same path that our Lord and his disciples treaded in the Garden of Gethsemane and experience a significant moment in Christian history?

Why Visit the Garden of Gethsemane?
For starters, no one misses the Garden of Gethsemane when they visit the Holy Land. Located outside Jerusalem at the bottom of the Mount of Olives adjacent to the Kidron Valley, the Garden of Gethsemane is one of the key sites in Jerusalem. If our understanding of Olive Trees is anything to go by, the Olive Trees is very likely to be the olive trees’ progeny in the garden when Jesus was praying in this same garden. Pretty cool, right? The things the Olive Trees could tell us if they could talk, about the night our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ prayed. On the Mountain of Olives, next to the Garden of Gethsemane, is the Church of All Nations. The uniquely designed church is also known as the Basilica of the Agony, a reference to Jesus’s last night.
Walk in the path of Jesus
The garden is perfect for when one desires to sit and reflect or think and pray. At the Garden of Gethsemane, pilgrims can experience one of the most crucial moments in Jesus’ life and learn some critical lessons about what it means to be a Christian.
Are you not excited at the thought of praying and meditating in a place where Jesus was recorded to have prayed? If you want to see scriptures come to life or to experience the Bible in some real sense, then you should visit the Garden of Gethsemane. Whatever you’re contemplating in life, walking down the Mount of Olives and down to the garden gives you a new perspective on life. Get a first hand perspective of what it might have been like for Jesus in Garden of Gethsemane.
The name “Gethsemane” means “oil press,” and, in keeping with the history of this place, it was only befitting that it was in this garden that our Lord agreed to be crushed for us. The story of the gospels shows that Gethsemane holds a lot of significance for Christianity. It shows that even when we might not understand everything going on or are unsure about our next step, we can trust the one who controls all things to see through his vision for our lives. A walk down the Garden of Gethsemane is a reminder for Christians worldwide that God knows what he has in store for us.
As part of the top 10 places to see at the Holy Land, you should walk the paths where our Lord prayed as his disciples slept. The Garden of Gethsemane paints a poignant picture of our inability to help ourselves even when our lives depend on it—a reminder of the utter redemptive ability of Jesus to come through for us time and again.
It would be of great value to you as a Christian to stand at the spot where Jesus prayed as he contemplated his pending sacrifice in a way only Jesus could, and where Judas kissed Jesus as he gave him over to the soldiers.
