Olive trees, and places related to them, were involved in numerous events of Bible History -
A dove from the ark brought an olive leaf to Noah after The Flood (Genesis 8:11).
The apostle Paul (see On The Road To Damascus) used the pruning and grafting of olive trees as analogies for the rejection of Israelites who reject Him, and of the acceptance of Gentiles into the church (Romans 11:11-24)
Olive trees, and places related to them, are also referred to in important events of Bible Prophecy -
The Two Witnesses are spoken of as the symbolic "two olive trees and the two lampstands that stand before The Lord of the earth." (Revelation 11:4)
The greatest event of all history will occur on The Mount Of Olives - The Return Of Jesus Christ.
