Geographical inaccuracy in the The Sophia of Jesus Christ

Geographical inaccuracy in the The Sophia of Jesus Christ

Are there geographical inaccuracy in the The Sophia of Jesus Christ or is there two mountains of Olives

The mountain called "Of the Olives" is in Galilee

The Sophia of Jesus Christ: After he rose from the dead, his twelve disciples and seven women continued to be his followers, and went to Galilee onto the mountain called "Divination and Joy". When they gathered together and were perplexed about the underlying reality of the universe and the plan, and the holy providence, and the power of the authorities, and about everything the Saviour is doing with them in the secret of the holy plan, the Saviour appeared - not in his previous form, but in the invisible spirit. And his likeness resembles a great angel of light. But his resemblance I must not describe. No mortal flesh could endure it, but only pure, perfect flesh, like that which he taught us about on the mountain called "Of the Olives" in Galilee.

Some would claim that this is Geographical inaccuracy in the Nag Hammadi text or the Geography is somewhat confused here since the mountain called "Of the Olives" or Olivet the Mount of Olives is in Judea near Jerusalem. However this is not the case there are many Olive Groves in northern Israel and Galilee

Rejoice!… Do not be afraid. Go and tell My brethren to go to Galilee, and there they will see Me”  (Matthew 28:9-10).
Sometime thereafter, “the eleven disciples went away into Galilee, to the mountain which Jesus had appointed for them,” and “worshipped Him” (Matthew 28:16).

sometime between this meeting with His apostles in Jerusalem and His ascension more than five weeks later, Jesus met with seven of His disciples at the Sea of Tiberias in Galilee (John 21:1-14), and later with all eleven of the apostles on a mountain in Galilee that Jesus earlier had appointed for them (Matthew 28:16).

The olive tree (Olea europaea) thrives on mountain slopes of Galilee and Samaria and up in the central highlands, as well as throughout the entire Mediterranean area. (Deut 24:20; 28:40; Jug 15:5)

The Galilee is famous for its olives, pomegranates, wine

Therefore I submit there is no geographical inaccuracy in the The Sophia of Jesus Christ
There are two or more mountains of Olives
