This view looks southwest from the Orson Hyde Park on the Mount of Olives toward Jerusalem. On its western slopes, near the bottom, is the Garden of Gethsemane. On 24 October 1841, Elder Orson Hyde climbed the Mount of Olives and offered a prophetic prayer of dedication for the return of the children of Abraham and the building of the temple.
Significant Events:
Rome destroyed Jerusalem in A.D. 70 as foretold by the Savior (see JS-M 1:23). The Savior will yet stand on the Mount of Olives prior to his appearance to all of the world. (See Zech. 14:3-5; D&C 45:48-53; 133:19-20; Bible Dictionary, “Olives, Mount of.”)
