«The beginning and the end». Peter Melonas Peter Melonas
After the Last Supper in the Upper Room, after Judas left to notify the chief priests that Jesus would be vulnerable, Jesus accompanied by his desciples, takes a walk to pray. Matthew and Mark identify the place as the garden of Gethsemane, Gethsemane, Luke identifies it as the Mount of Olives. Once Jesus and the disciples arrived, Jesus drew away Peter, James, and John—His core three followers. He asked them to stay with Him. Jesus underwent the agony in the garden. While Jesus wept in anguish, Peter, James, and John had fallen asleep. Judas had arrived, followed by a large number of men with swords, lanterns, and clubs as well as the chief priests and Pharisees. Judas Is·carʹi·ot, who was betraying Him —calling Him «Rabbi, » and kissed Him, a traditional greeting at the time. As the guards took Jesus away, the disciples abandon him and fled. Jesus is delivered to the house of Caʹia·phas, who is the high priest. Jesus is taken to Pontius Pilate and the Messiah begins his coming torture, and crucifixion
Gethsemane was a garden at the foot of the Mount of Olives in Jerusalem where, according to the four Gospels of the New Testament, Jesus underwent the agony in the garden. While Jesus wept in anguish, Peter, James, and John had fallen asleep. It is a place of great resonance in Christianity. There are several small olive groves in church property, all adjacent to each other and identified with biblical Gethsemane. In ancient Israel, the chosen ones—priests, prophets, and kings—were anointed with olive oil. Jesus was anointed with sweat in an olive grove. It is fitting that Jesus, our Prophet, Priest, and King was in the Garden of Gethsemane—an olive grove—as He began His fulfillment of His role of Messiah, the Anointed One. The term Alpha and Omega comes from the phrase «i am Alpha and Omega» (Koiné Greek: «ἐγώ εἰμι τὸ Ἄλφα καὶ τὸ ὦ»), is interpreted by many Christians to mean that Jesus has existed for all eternity or that God is eternal. Though many commentators and dictionaries ascribe the title «the alpha and the omega» to both God and to Christ.
