The Mount of Olives (with the Temple Mount seen on the left)

The Mt of Olives is associated with salvation and resurrection both in Judaism and Christianiy, based on prophecies from the Old Testament. The Jewish cemetery seen on the right is the oldest and largest one in Jerusalem. Many wished to be burried here, where the Messiah will come from. Of course, Christians believe that the Messiah has already come. Indeed, in the New Testament, the Mt of Olives is the scene of some of the most dramatic events in the last days of Jesus, and of his Ascension.
