HOW OLD IS THIS OLIVE TREE?
Over 2000 years according to carbon dating. It’s one of a number located in the Garden of Gethsemane on the Mount of Olives. It’s almost certain this tree witnessed the agonising prayer of Jesus to His Father, the betrayal by Judas and the arrest by the soldiers. Sad it requires a protective screen to stop souvenir hunters.
Yet, a sacred space that leaves me in awe and wonder.
