Mount Olivet, also known as the Mount of Olives, is a rock formation located east of Jerusalem’s Old City. It got its name from the olive groves that once covered its slopes and is popular among Christians for apparently playing a key part in several of Jesus’ life events. However, it may also hold a clue to his second coming, according to a strange find.
Amazon’s “Bible Conspiracies” documentary revealed how geologists may have found proof of a biblical prophecy that will be fulfilled in the future.
The 2016 series detailed: “We are led to believe that Christ will return and on that day his feet will stand on the Mount of Olives, east of Jerusalem.
“And the Mount of Olives will be split in two from east to west.
“Strangely, geologists have discovered a geometric fault line running east to west right through the Mount Olives.
“Could this be proof of God? We will not know until Jesus returns and splits the mountain.”
Because of its association with both Jesus and Mary, the mount has been a site of Christian worship since ancient times.
Today it is a major site of pilgrimage for Catholics, the Eastern Orthodox, and Protestants.
Many religious followers have been buried on the site, based on the understanding that when the Messiah returns, the resurrection of the dead will begin there, as told in the Bible.
Zechariah 14:4 reads: “On that day his feet will stand on the Mount of Olives, east of Jerusalem.
“And the Mount of Olives will be split in two from east to west, forming a great valley, with half of the mountain moving north and half moving south.”
