Before his ultimate rejection at Golgotha, Jesus wrestled in the Garden of Gethsemane with what he knew was coming. The significance of being in an olive grove for this internal battle was not lost on him. Olive trees need both harsh east wind and refreshing west wind. Olives have to be heavily processed in order to get rid of hardness and bitterness. And olives must be pressed to produce valuable oil, and oil can then produce light.
