Garden of Gethsemane

In my previous visit to Israel, one of the most memorable places I visited was the garden where Jesus Christ spend a night before his crucifixion. In the garden of Gethsemane, Jesus prayed to His Father.  It is very special to actually touch and see the exact place where Jesus prayed. The garden of Gethsemane is found just outside Jerusalem’s old city, Lion’s Gate.


This is the exact place where Jesus sit and prayed. A church is built around this to protect it.

1 Comment on Jesus Prayer in Gethsemane

  1. Christian says:

    Jesus was fully human and fully God. In the Garden he showed his humanity. He knew what He had to face, but He submitted Himself to the will of the Father. He knew He had a purpose. He knew He was born to die to bring us back to the Father.
