Garden Of Gethsemane (Biblical Archaeology) | 10 min

The Garden of Gethsemane lies outside of the old city towards the lower side of the Mount of Olives. The modern garden you can visit today is much smaller than it was in the first century but the olive industry is still alive and well. There are a few trees in this garden that might have been saplings at the time of Jesus 2,000 years ago! Join us as Michael explains the historical and spiritual significance of the garden.
