    The City from the Mount of Olives. Haram esh-Sharif (Temple Mount) - the Noble Sanctuary, the Dome of the Rock and the al-Aqsa Mosque. An area sacred to Jews, Moslems and Christians. Across the Kidron valley from the Temple Mount rising a hundred metres above the city is the Mount of Olives.


    Over the brow of the hill is Bethany. When he visited Jerusalem Jesus stayed with Mary, Martha and Lazarus at Bethany. Lk.10.38; Mk. 11:11. How many times he must have climbed the Mount of Olives and turned to look at the city spread out before him.

    On one occasion, as Jesus was leaving the Temple a disciple remarked on the size of the Temple. Jesus predicted: “Do you see these great buildings? Not one stone will be left here upon another.” Mk 13.2. Later seated on the Mount of Olives opposite the Temple the disciples asked him when this would be? Jesus spoke about the coming disaster that would befall the city and its people Mk 13:5-37.
