Golgotha– The hill just above Jeremiah’s Grotto, is possibly the true site of Calvary (Calvary is the English-language name for Golgotha). Jesus was crucified outside the city gate (Hebrews 13:12). Golgotha overlooks the ancient main road that led to Jericho and Damascus in New Testament times.

This hill is also known as Jeremiah’s Grotto and is the traditional site where Jeremiah wrote the book of Lamentations. This is also the traditional site where Stephen was martyred.

Mark 15:22
They brought Jesus to the place called Golgotha (which means The Place of the Skull).

John 19:41
At the place where Jesus was crucified, there was a garden, and in the garden a new tomb, in which no one had ever been laid.

It can be viewed from inside the Garden Tomb site. I took this picture from inside the Garden Tomb compound.

  1. I heard that the ARK OF THE COVENANT
    is hidden in a cave just under where
    Jesus was crucified and his blood ran down
    through an earthquake crack onto the
    mercy seat.
    Do you know anything about it?
    I understand that it was Jeremiah that put
    it there to keep it safe from the Babylonian

    • Yes, it’s true. It will be unveiled to the world once certain laws- undermining God’s 7th day Sabbath (known a Saturday in western world)- are passed. Thereafter, multitudes who are unfaithful to God’s 10 commandments will receive “the mark of the beast”.

      • Hi, I am glad you visited the site about Golgotha. I don’t agree with you that this site will be unveiled to the world once certain laws- undermining God’s Sabbath are passed. I beleive everyone of us has been unfaithful to God’s 10 commandments (Romans 3:23). The good news in there is salvation through faith in Christ for all .

      • It is by grace you are saved through faith in Jesus Christ you are saved. Observing the sabbath does not save you. Christ said by your words you will be acquitted or condemned not by observing or not the sabbath or what day it is. Get over it! The pharisees who crucified Christ also had really bid hangups about Jesus healing on the Sabbath. They even wanted to kill Christ but didn’t want to violate the sabbath by having a man hanging on a tree on the sabbath. Watch you tongue Adventists before you find you lot with the Sadducees and Pharisees!

  2. Brad,
    I was doing some research for my sermon on Sunday and ran across your website with a picture at the top that looks like the Sea of Galilee. Is it? What is the story behind the picture? May I used your picture in a PowerPoint presentation, if I give you credit?

  3. Hi Ray,

    The picture you are referring to is a stock picture provided by Word press so I am not sure where it was taken, but it is by Ed Merrit .

    You can use the picture of the Sea of Galilee I took in December.
    The link is:

    A small description of the picture is there on this post.

    In Christ,

  4. is it true place were jesus crusified?

  5. How can stil there be people to believe this is Golgota?.. it has been extensively proved that these tombs are much older than Jesus time and the Gospel says Jesus’ tomb was a new one. You have to be humble and accept that Jesus tomb is inside a Church not under protestant’s rule: the Holy Sepulcher.

    • Hi Atilio,

      Do you have the source reference for the tombs being older than Jesus time that you can send me?

      Brad B

    • Atilio, now why would it “have to be” inside a church NOT under protestant rule? I don’t exactly see your logic there. Anyways, you should research the many recent articles written that place Jesus’ crucifixion at the base of the Mount of Olives. At the base of the mountain was where the Jews would put the skulls of those that were stoned to death after the bodies were thrown into the basin between the temple and the Mt of Olives. Is also the only location where the Centurion guard who “saw the things that were happening” (Matt 27:45-darkness, 27:51-veil torn in two, 27:51-52-Earthquake that opened the tombs) could have seen the tombs (still there today as a huge graveyard) in the valley between the Temple and the Mt of Olives) and the Veil in the Temple.

  6. Just found your article on Golgotha. Read 1 Samuel 17 – David killed Goliath of Gath (Golgotha), cut off his head and brought it to Jerusalem…… The place of the Skull. Jesus has over come the enemies of God who defile or reproached Him with their words.

  7. They found the Ark of the Covenant where Moses placed the 10 Commandments, in a cave under Golgotha.
