GALILEE, MOUNTAIN IN . After our Lord’s resurrection, the eleven disciples went away from Jerusalem ‘into Galilee, unto the mountain where Jesus had appointed them’ ( Matthew 28:16 ). No record or hint indicates to us what mountain is meant. There is no foundation for the theory that it is the Mt. of Olives, whose north point is said to have borne the name ‘Galilee.’
