Acts 1:10 And while they looked stedfastly toward heaven as he went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel;
Acts 1:11 Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven.
Acts 1:12 Then returned they unto Jerusalem from the mount called Olivet, which is from Jerusalem a sabbath day's journey.
But Saint Luke in his first volume says, they went "as far as to Bethany":
Luke 24:50 And he led them out as far as to Bethany, and he lifted up his hands, and blessed them.
Luke 24:51 And it came to pass, while he blessed them, he was parted from them, and carried up into heaven.
Maybe Saint Luke meant that once Jesus was seated at the right hand of the Lord, the Holy Land would look pretty much to him like the satellite view in your map - and thus Bethany and the Mount of Olives seemed to be real close?
I'm sure they are two places named similar things. One right next to Bethany and the other next to the temple. The other possibility is that Bethany is actually closer up the Mountain of Olives.

Christians are superior because we possess an understanding that unbelievers lack.

Most unbelievers do not even believe in Satan and cannot understand his tactics.
