This is Golgotha, or the Place of the Skull, named in Scripture as the site where the Romans executed Jesus.
This morning I was praying, and I thanked God for the single most amazing thing anyone has ever done for me - Jesus dying on the cross to atone for my sin. For loving me while I was yet hostile to Him.
My husband often says if God never did another thing for us, He has already done enough by giving us eternal life. And he's right.
Can you see the eyes of the skull in the photos? The one on the left has the best view. I stood on this site in 1979. The three crosses would have stood at the top of the hill.
I have traveled and visited many places where momentous events in history took place. The Colosseum, Tower Green in London, Westminster Abbey, Hadrian's Wall - to name a few.
This will always be the most significant.
