JOHN 8:1-2  1 But Jesus went to the Mount of Olives. 2 Now early in the morning He came again into the temple, and all the people came to Him; and He sat down and taught them.

Why did Jesus go to the "Mount of Olives" (John 8:1)?
He spent the night there, either sleeping or praying, until "early" the next "morning." (John 8:1)

Why did Jesus spend the night there instead of at His "house" (John 7:53) like everyone else?
He didn't have a house to go to: "And Jesus said to him, 'Foxes have holes and birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has nowhere to lay His head.'" (Luke 9:58)

Couldn't He afford one?
Jesus made and owns everything in the universe but chose to forego materialistic comforts and assets.

Did Jesus or His disciples at least dress well?
No, and Jesus said that those who dress well are politicians, not His disciples: "But what did you go out to see? A man clothed in soft garments? Indeed those who are gorgeously appareled and live in luxury are in kings’ courts." (Luke 7:25)

Then why do some church leaders dress gorgeously and live in luxury?
They have no Biblical justification for it. Instead of heeding Jesus' command to "give to the poor" (Mark 10:21), they tell the poor to give to them and then live in luxury while millions starve around the world. Their lifestyle is an abomination to Jesus' example and teaching, and disqualifies them as true servants of God and servant leaders of His church.
