While sketching various possibilities for the next page of this book I started thinking about Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane. There is some debate over this, but the method I’m going by for determining the start of the Hebrew year, which was Biblically based on agriculture, says that it started a couple of weeks ago and the feast of Passover has started tonight. It was on the night of the start of Passover that Jesus was praying in the Garden of Gethsemane, right before His arrest and then crucifixion the next day.
What I drew while thinking about that is not fully geographically accurate for the area around the garden, which is at the base of the Mount of Olives, but may be similar. It’s mainly just meant to reflect the serenity that I imagined for the place that Jesus was known to go for prayer.
This was drawn with a ball point pen and a variety of pencils with different hardnesses.
