Church of All Nations – Jesus and Judas in the Garden of Gethsemane

During our first visit to the Old City of Jerusalem during our January trip to Israel, we visited numerous sites significant in Christianity.

Our first stop was the Church of All Nations, also known as the Basilica of the Agony or the Church of the Agony.

This is one of the architectural images I captured of the incredible interior.

In this image is depicted a large mosaic of Jesus Christ and Judas Iscariot in the Garden of Gethsemane on the night where Jesus was praying.  It is in this small garden that Jesus was arrested.

The basilica is located right next to the Garden of Gethsemane on the Mount of Olives, where even today, there are olive trees over 800 years old.  We got to see these and walk around the garden.

Being in this church, and knowing the significance of what happened, was an amazing experience.
