Olivet, Mount

Additional Links

Named from the groves of olive-trees which grew there. Range of hills east of Jerusalem, terminating in the Mount of Offence. Tradition locates there Solomon's idolatrous shrines (4Kings 23). In David's time there was a holy place dedicated to God (2 Kings 15). The Mount is venerated by Christians as a favorite resort of Our Lord during the last days of His public life; it is the spot where He wept over Jerusalem (Luke 19) and prophesied its ruin and the end of the world (Matthew 24).
