Mount of Olives by US Postage Designer Rex Davenport
President Morales: The Mount of Olives or Mount Olivet is a Mountain Ridge east of and adjacent to Jerusalem's Old City. It is named for the Olive Groves that once covered its slope in the Judean Kingdom. In the Old Testament the Mount of Olives is mentioned once in relation to King David. When David's son Absalom wrested control of Jerusalem, while King David continued up the Mount of Olives weeping as he watched is loyal followers fled the city. In the New Testament it talks about Jesus who had made many visits to the Mount of Olives to see Lazarus, Mother Mary, and Martha.
The Mount of Olives is also the place of betrayal of Jesus by Judas Iscariot on the Mount of Olives when the Roman Soldiers had taken Jesus from the Garden of Gethsemane. And after the trials, crucifixion, and resurrection, Jesus once again stood on the Mount of Olives during his final visit with his disciples, and lifted up his hands and blessed his disciples and was lifted up into the Heavens from the Mount of Olives.
This Bolivia Postage Design depicts the right foot of Jesus on the Temple Mount regarding his final return which is stated in Zechariah 14:1-10. A copy of this Bolivia Postage Design has been forwarded to Pope Francis in Rome, as a "Religious Postage Design" for the Bolivian Postal Authority for consideration of depicting this image perspective on a Bolivia Postage Stamp.
