Gordon’s Calvary

Skull Hill, Jerusalem

In this photograph the skull on the face of the hill can be clearly seen. (If you have difficulty seeing the skull, move your mouse pointer over the smaller photograph.) Most evangelical Christians believe this is the place where Yeshua was crucified. The hill is part of Mount Mariah and overlooks the ancient main road that led to Jericho and Damascus in the First Century. This is in keeping with the Roman tradition of performing executions in places where as many people as possible would pass by close enough to see their suffering victims and read the charges against them that were nailed with them to their crosses, yet far enough away so the stench would not overpower the city.

The location and physical features of the hill correspond exactly to the biblical description. Additionally, it is less that a hundred meters from the Garden Tomb.

If this is not the actual Golgotha, it is certainly close enough to give us a very good idea of the original.
