This site is the traditional location of where Jesus prayed before being arrested prior to his trial and crucification (Matthew 26). The garden of olive trees includes ancient specimens that may predate Jesus. The Church of All Nations (again by Antonio Barluzzi) opened in 1924. It is built over the remains of a Byzantine-era church and incorporates the Rock of Agony, which is presented as the location where Jesus agonized in prayer before being arrested (Matthew 26:36).
