From the January 1926 issue of The Christian Science Journal

IN the time of Christ Jesus, the mount of Olives commanded a sweeping view of the city of Jerusalem, with its walls, terraced gardens, magnificent palaces, and architectural monuments of shining marble and glittering gold. And from it may be seen the river Jordan, which Elisha parted with the mantle of Elijah, and in which Jesus was baptized by John.
