An additional view of some of the old olive trees in the garden next to the Church of All Nations.
Note the trunk of the tree just slightly left of center. Olive trees do not grow "rings" like many other trees and the older ones, like these, do not have solid trunks — thus their age is very difficult to determine.
After the "Last Supper" Jesus retired to this garden to pray with his disciples (Matt 26:30-56; Mark 14:26-52; Luke 22:39-53; John 18:1-12). It was here that the disciples slept while Jesus prayed and where ultimately he was captured and led away to be tried.
