The Mount of Olives is located on the east side of Jerusalem and overlooks the Judean Wilderness and Dead Sea to the east and the Old Ancient Core and Temple Mount of Jerusalem to the West.
It actually is a north–south ridge that rises to about 2,641 ft. (804 m.). It is mentioned 30 times in the Bible, all but two instances in the New Testament in conjunction with the ministry of Jesus.
