12. Garden of Gethsemane
This photograph of an aged olive tree was taken at a traditional site of the Garden of Gethsemane. The Savior prayed near here after leaving the upper room on the night of His betrayal.
Significant Events: Here Jesus Christ began to suffer for the sins of mankind (Matt. 26:36–44; Mark 14:32–41; D&C 19:16–19). Following His prayer He was betrayed by Judas Iscariot, and His disciples temporarily forsook Him following His arrest in the garden (Mark 14:50). (See BD Gethsemane.)
