Significant Places: Golgotha
John 19:17-18a

The Upward Look
    by Max D. Hutto,

“They took Jesus, therefore, and He went out, bearing His own cross, to the place called the Place of a Skull, which is called in Hebrew, Golgotha. There they crucified Him,” John 19:17-18a NASB

In Hebrew a hill just outside of Jerusalem is called Golgotha, the Place of a Skull. Derived from the Latin translation, it is commonly referred to as Mount Calvary. This mount was used as a place of execution. There on Calvary, not far from the Temple where lambs were sacrificed for the sins of the people, the Lamb of God was crucified, was sacrificed, as the ultimate and complete payment for sin. There Jesus suffered the wrath of God for our sin.

Lord Jesus, Calvary will always be a special place to me, for there You gave Your life so that I may have my sins forgiven and may have eternal life.
