Mt 26:36 Gethsemane. The word means "oil-press", and would indicate that a press for making oil out of the olives, which grew in abundance on the mountain, stood there. It was on the western slope of the Mount of Olives. Sit ye here. He speaks to the eight who were to remain. These eight would form, as it were, a watch against premature surprise. While I go and pray yonder. The great crisis was at hand, and it was casting its dark shadow before on the spirit of our Lord. In this hour of the power of darkness he felt that he must throw himself upon his Father's bosom.
