|View over the Olive Mountain to the east of Jerusalem. This yellow field is Jewish cemetery. Religious Jews consider it a privelege to be burried on the Olive Mountain as they believe that Messiah when He comers He will come at Olive Mountain. For us Christians, He already was there and indeed comes again. Gethsemane garden is further to the left. The cone shaped structure in the bottom to the left is Absalom's Tomb (Absalom was the son of David and he erected this in his memory). The structure to the right in the bottom is the tomb of the temple priest Zechariah, who was unfairly stoned by the king Jehoash as recorded in the II Chronicles 24:20-21, murder of whom also mentions Jesus in Matthew 23:35 and Luke 11:51. The valley below is called Kidron valley, which is between the Olive Mouintain and the Old City of Jerusalem. According to the New Testament Jesus and disciples crossed it many times.|
