The disciples went into the Olive grove. Many think there was the Olive Press there. The purpose of the Olive Press is to crush the olive, remove the oil and the oil was used for various purposes. Even today we get much of the oil from the Mediterranean area, the Middle East.

Oil in Scripture is a symbol of the Holy Spirit.

So we have all of these images joining together. Jesus is about to be crushed that the Holy Spirit can be released on us. He had told the disciples that it was good that He went away, then He would send the Holy Spirit. But before that He Himself had to crushed for our iniquities and bruised for our sins.
