Show Notes for Grains from Gutteridge Podcast Episode #16:
Gethsemane—The Olive Press


Doré's image of Jesus in GethsemaneJesus in the Garden of Gethsemane (woodcut by Gustav Doré)

The name Gethsemane means olive press. King David had his Gethsemane, and “great David’s greater Son,” the Lord Jesus, had His. It came on a pleasant night in spring under a full moon. From Christ’s Gethsemane, by way of Calvary, the gift of the golden oil of the Spirit comes to us. But it is only if we will allow Him to take us through our own personal Gethsemanes, by the way of the Cross, that we shall be like Him, and share His power and exaltation. When He returns, He will abolish Gethsemane, says Zechariah; then there will be no more sorrow for His children.
