Gethsemane means "oil press." If you've ever made cider or grape juice, or paper, you've seen what a press can do. There's a lot of pressure. [Hey, I just noticed. Those words are connected!] A press squeezes something out, with crushing damage to the thing being squeezed.

Jesus was in the "press" of Gethsemane.
And drops of blood were pressed out of Him.
