Olives, Mount of
David crossed the Mount of Olives when fleeing Absalom (2 Samuel 15:30 ). Ezekiel saw the cherubim chariot land there (Ezekiel 11:23 ). Zechariah described how the Mount of Olives would move to form a huge valley on the Day of the Lord (Zechariah 14:3-5 ). Many crucial events in Jesus' life occurred on the Mount of Olives. (See, for example, Matthew 26:30 ; Mark 11:1-2 ; Luke 4:5 ; Luke 22:39-46 ; Acts 1:9-12 ).
