GETHSEMANE . A place to which Christ retired with His disciples ( Matthew 26:35 , Mark 14:32 ), and where Judas betrayed Him. It was probably a favourite resort of our Lord, as Judas knew where He was likely to be found. There are two traditional sites, side by side, one under the Greeks, the other under the Latins. It may be admitted that they are somewhere near the proper site, on the W. slope of the Mount of Olives above the Kidron; but there is no justification for the exact localization of the site.

R. A. S. Macalister.
