Gethsemane – what does that mean?
Gethsemane is a corruption into English of two Hebrew words GAT and SHMANIM. It is taken to mean “the place where olive oil is pressed”.
Now, here is a further insight into the Hebrew words GAT and SHMANIM.
GAT, as a Hebrew word by itself (Hebrew: gimel, tav), means a winepress.
SHMANIN means oils, and is the plural of the Hebrew word SHEMEN, for oil.
A literal translation of GAT SHMANIM would be “winepress of oils”.

Good Friday – we remember Lord. Thank you Jesus, for becoming the Passover Lamb!
Diana, that was absolutely beautiful. What a beautiful offering to our Lord and a wonderful reminder to His beloved bride of just how high a price He was willing to pay for us.
Much love to you and many blessings,
Thank you Cheryl. Such a high price paid, such love. Thank you Jesus. Love you too! Diana
Thank you for a beautifully designed post.
Thank you Daryl. I am in a song writing forum, and we are writing about Jesus death, burial, and resurrection. Blessings! Diana
I just listened to the song. Great! I really enjoy the content of your blog. There are no “empty reads”, but rather each one has something important to say. Peace be unto you!
Thank you Daryl for your faithfulness and kindness. Blessings and peace to you and your family! Diana
Just catching up, thank you so much for the re-blog. Have a blessed Easter! Diana
Just saw Passion for the first time and my other blog is based on those moments, the one hour he wanted his disciples to pray. That’s why I get up at 5 or 5:30 every morning and pray. To be with him in that Garden. Anyway, recognized that powerful picture you put up with Satan in the background.
That film is amazing. Mad me cry, again and again. I am with you in early morning prayer, there is nothing else like it. God tells you secret things and reveals His plans for the day. What is your other blog? I would love to follow…
Very touching. It’s an incredible and moving time of year.
This is beautiful.
Thank you Kadeen. He knows what agony we go through too. (((Hugs)))
I agree. He most definitely does. <3<3<3
