After dinner, Jesus spent time talking and praying with his 11 remaining disciples. Leaving the upper room, the group went to a place outside the city of Jerusalem, across the Kidron Valley, called the Mount of Olives. They would have seen a stunning view of Jerusalem from the Mount of Olives.
When he arrived at the Garden, Jesus asked His disciples to wait and keep watch as he prayed a short distance away. In great anguish, Jesus prayed he would not have to suffer the horror He knew was just ahead. As his disciples slept, He pleaded:
Father, if you are willing, take this cup from me;
yet not my will but Yours be done.
