__|a  Printed: "We are standing by the eastern wall of the hill-top city and looking east across the valley to another hill--one of the hills most famous on all this great, round earth--the Mount of Olives. That road at the left is the highway to Jericho--the very road the Master brought to His listeners' minds when He told the quibbling questioner that immortal story about the neighborly relationship of one man to another (Luke x. 30). Tradition says it is the way taken by David centuries farther back, when he retreated from Jerusalem (II Samuel xv. 23). The two roads farther to the right both go to Bethany, where Lazarus and his sisters lived. Many a time Jesus walked over those very paths. The lower road, farthest to the right, may be the one over which He rode only five days before the crucifixion (Matt. xxi. 1-12). The summit of the hill is believed to have been the place of His Ascension (Luke xxiv. 50-51). Beyond the Mount of Olives, far away at the east, lie the lands of the Assyrian and Persian kings (the home of the Wise Men) and the vast region of central Asia. Behind us are the mountains, and then the blue stretches of the Mediterranean, and, beyond that, the western world, where His word and work took root and changed the whole course of civilization. [new paragraph] But look down now, straight ahead, to that walled space, planted with olives and tall, dark cypress trees, the Garden of Gethsemane. In that very spot the Master went to pray, after the Last Supper. There He was seized by the Roman soldiers. [new paragraph] (See Hurlbut's Traveling in the Holy Land, through the Stereoscope, also Forbush's Travel Lessons on the Life of Jesus and Travel Lessons on the Old Testament, published by Underwood & Underwood.)[new paragraph] From Notes of Travel, No. 31, Copyright 1905, by Underwood & Underwood." The title, "Garden of Gethsemane and Mount of Olives," is printed in six languages: English, French, German, Spanish, Dutch, and Greek.
