  The Mount of Olives is located east of Jerusalem about a Sabbath day’s journey. 
(Acts 1:12)
  Jesus rode on the back of a donkey on His triumphal entry into Jerusalem from the Mount of Olives.  (Mark 11:1)
  Jesus took His twelve disciples to the Mount of Olives during the last week of His life to teach them of the signs of His return.  (Matthew 24:3)
 The Mount of Olives was also the place the Lord Jesus went to pray and yield to His Father’s will before He was arrested. (Luke 22:39-41; Matthew 26:30)
  The Mount of Olives was the place where He ascended into heaven. (Acts 1:12)
  The Mount of Olives will be an important place when Christ comes again as King.  (Zechariah 14:4) 

  The Mount of Olives has much historical significance to the Jewish faith and history.  The Mount of Olives has much historical significance to all Christendom. 

  The Mount of Olives…where Jesus’ physical feet will once again come… as His followers ~ He is our hope.  He is the living hope in which we are to trustingly live this day. 

  He is coming again!  Our faith is in the living, resurrected, ascended Lord Jesus Christ. 
  The apostles were promised that Jesus would come back to that Mount of Olives from where He ascended into heaven.

  A promise was given to Jesus’ apostles and this is also a promise to us!
(NASB) Acts 1:11 “…This Jesus, who has been taken up from you into heaven, will come in just the same way as you have watched Him go into heaven.”
