OccurrencesMatthew 26:36 Then Jesus came with them to a place called Gethsemane, and said to his disciples, "Sit here, while I go there and pray."
Mark 14:32 They came to a place which was named Gethsemane. He said to his disciples, "Sit here, while I pray."
Luke 22:39 He came out, and went, as his custom was, to the Mount of Olives. His disciples also followed him.
geth-sem'-a-ne (Gethsemanei (for other spellings and accents see Thayer, under the word); probably from the Aramaic gath shemanim, "oil press"): Mentioned (Matthew 26:36 Mark 14:32) as a place (chorion), margin "enclosed piece of ground," to which Jesus and the disciples retired after the last supper; in John 18:1 it is described as a "garden" (kepos), while Luke (22:40) simply says "place" (topos). From John 18:1 it is evident that it was across the Kidron, and from Luke 22:39, that it was on the Mount of Olives. Very possibly (Luke 21:37; Luke 22:39) it was a spot where Jesus habitually lodged when visiting Jerusalem. The owner-whom conjecture suggests as Mary the mother of Mark-must have given Jesus and His disciples special right of entry to the spot.
GETHSEM'ANE, "oil press", according to tradition it is e. of the Kidron about 100 yds. and at the foot of Mt. of Olives. This tradition can be traced back to about 400 Asher Dan A wall was built around it in 1847.
