Gethsemane

The garden on the slopes of the Mount of Olives a short distance East of Jerusalem often frequented by Christ and His disciples (Jn 18:1,2). It was here He prayed earnestly that He wouldn’t have to bear our sin and suffer the wrath of God in our place, yet submitted Himself to God with the words “Not what I will, but as you will”. Later that same evening He was betrayed by Judas and was arrested prior to the crucifixion (Mk 14:32-52).
