Muntele Maslinilor, locul unde:

  • Domnul Isus mergea (se retragea) cand era in Ierusalim (Luca 22:39)  După ce a ieşit afară, S’a dus, ca de obicei, în muntele Măslinilor. Ucenicii Lui au mers după El.
  • Isus a mers de doua ori pe Muntele Maslinilor in ultima saptamana inainte de moartea si invierea Sa. Marti, cand a rostit pildele din Matei 24:1-25:46. In paralela se gasesc pildele si in Marcu 13:1-37 si in Luca 21:5-36. A doua oara, a mers sa se roage in gradina Ghetimani (pe Muntele Maslinilor) in seara cand a fost vandut de Iuda.
  • Isus s-a inaltat la cer de pe Muntele Maslinilor. Faptele Apostolilor 1:9-12
  • Isus se va reintoarce pe Muntele Maslinilor. Scrie in Zaharia 14:4 – Picioarele Lui vor sta în ziua aceea pe muntele Măslinilor, care este în faţa Ierusalimului, spre răsărit; muntele Măslinilor se va despica la mijloc, spre răsărit şi spre apus, şi se va face o vale foarte mare: jumătate din munte se va trage înapoi spre miază noapte, iar jumătate spre miazăzi. In anul 1964 s-a construit un hotel pe Muntele Maslinilor, la excavari au aflat ca pe mijlocul muntelui exista o falie sau paraclaza, care  reprezintă o ruptură apărută în scoarța Pământului si care cauzeaza cutremure.

Dr. David Reagan: Welcome to the land of Israel and the city of Jerusalem. I have come here to the city of Jerusalem to explore 4 mountains; 3 of them are important in biblical history and in Bible prophecy. The 4th is important because of what is situated on it. The 4 mountains are: The Mount of Olives, The Temple Mount, Mount Zion, ad Mount Hertzel. I want to point out right here at the beginning that these mountains we’re gonna be taking a look at are really not mountains by american standards. We would call them hills. But in the Bible, they are referred to as mountains. And, you know, they really are, when you consider the fact that they are high hills here in Israel, and Israel really only has one true mountain by american standards. That’s Mt. Hermon, which is located on the far north, on the border with Syria.

The first mountain we are going to take a look at is the Mount of Olives, and the best place where we can get a good view of it is from the Eastern Gate of the Old City.

2:00 – Well, here we are, at the Eastern Gate, sometimes referred to as the Beautiful Gate or the Golden Gate. It was a gate that was used for ceremonial purposes by priests, during the time of Jesus. As you can see, there’s a cemetery here in front of the gate. It’s a moslem cemetery that was placed here for a very definite reason, but we’ll talk more about that when we focus on the Temple Mount. For now, our subject is the Mount of Olives. Directly below me is a deep ravine, called The Kidron Valley. This valley runs North and South.  and it separates the Old City of Jerusalem from the Mount of Olives, which is located to the east of the city. This is the mount from which Jesus ascended into heaven. It is also the place that the Bible says He will return to. At the base of the mount is the Church of All Nations, also called the Church of the Agony. It is located at the traditional site of the Garden of Ghetsemane…. On the top of the mountain, we see the Hotel of the Seven Arches. When it was built, in 1964, it was discovered that a major geological faultline lies beneath it.  That is significant, because the Book of Zechariah says in chapter 14, that when the Messiah returns to the Mount of Olives, it will split in half when His feet touch the ground.

The Mount of Olives runs North and South along the Kidron Valley. It’s a ridge mountain. And when you reach Hebrew University, where you see that tall spire, the name of the mountain changes to Mt. Scopus. It is where Titus and his legions camped, while they destroyed Jerusalem in 70 A.D. Let’s go now to an observation site on the Mount of Olives.(4:10 min. mark)

Question: „What happened on the Mount of Olives?”

Answer: Jesus made many visits to the Mount of Olives (Luke 21:37). In fact, it was “usual” for Him to go there when in the vicinity of Jerusalem (Luke 22:39). The Bible records two visits to the Mount of Olives, both in the last week of Jesus’ life, in which something of significance happened. The first visit was to deliver what has come to be known as the Olivet Discourse, recorded in Matthew 24:1—25:46. Parallel passages are found in Mark 13:1–37and Luke 21:5–36. The second visit was on the night He was betrayed. That evening began with the Last Supper and ended in the Garden of Gethsemane on the Mount of Olives.

The content of the Olivet Discourse is Jesus’ response to His disciples’ question “Tell us, when will these things be, and what will be the sign of your coming and of the close of the age?” (Matthew 24:3). The content of what Jesus taught in Matthew 24–25 primarily refers to the future tribulation period and the second coming of Christ at the end of the tribulation. The Discourse includes parables about those who wait for the Master’s coming—the wise and faithful servant (Matthew 24:45-51), the five wise virgins (Matthew 25:1-13), and the good servant who uses his “talents” (money) wisely as he waits for the Master’s return (Matthew 25:14-30).

Jesus’ second visit to the Mount of Olives followed His last Passover meal with His disciples, in which He established the New Covenant and then revealed Judas as the one who would betray His master (John 13:1-30). At the conclusion of the meal, Jesus instituted the Lord’s Supper (Matthew 26:26-29;1 Corinthians 11:23-26). After the meal, He took His disciples to the Garden of Gethsemane, literally “oil-press,” located on a slope of the Mount of Olives just across the Kidron Valley from Jerusalem. There Jesus prayed in agony as He contemplated the day to come. So overcome by the horror of what He was to experience in the crucifixion the following day that God sent an angel from heaven to strengthen Him (Luke 22:43).

After this, Judas Iscariot, the betrayer, arrived with a “multitude” of soldiers, high priests, Pharisees, and servants to arrest Jesus. Judas identified Him by the prearranged signal of a kiss which he gave to Jesus. Trying to protect Jesus, Peter took a sword and attacked a man named Malthus, the servant of the high priest, cutting off his ear. Jesus rebuked Peter and healed the man’s ear, displaying the miraculous power of God. Nevertheless, they arrested Him and took Him to Pontius Pilate, while the disciples scattered in fear for their lives.

The Mount of Olives is also mentioned in the Book of Zechariah. In a prophecy related to the end times, the Prophet Zechariah declared, „On that day his feet will stand on the Mount of Olives, east of Jerusalem, and the Mount of Olives will be split in two from east to west, forming a great valley, with half of the mountain moving north and half moving south” (Zechariah 14:4). This prophecy, related to the triumphant coming of the Messiah, connects to both of the above Mount of Olives passages. It connects with the Olivet Discourse in that both passages refer to the end times. It connects with the Garden of Gethsemane in that the very location where Jesus was betrayed and rejected will be the same location where Jesus returns triumphantly.
