“And He, bearing His cross, went out to a place called the Place of a Skull, which is called in Hebrew, Golgotha, where they crucified Him, and two others with Him, one on either side, and Jesus in the center.” John 19:17 (Note: Today, this place is a bus station where the city wall was where Jesus was crucified. Above the bus station you can see the picture here of Golgotha as noted in the Bible).

“Then they took the body of Jesus, and bound it in strips of linen with the spices, as the custom of the Jews is to bury. Now in the place where He was crucified there was a garden, and in the garden a new tomb in which no one had yet been laid. So there they laid Jesus, because of the Jews’ Preparation Day for the tomb was nearby.” John 19:40-42

“But the angel answered and said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you seek Jesus who was crucified. “He is not here; for He is risen, as He said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay.” Matthew 28:5-6.

I hope that as you view these pictures and read the Bible verses you will gain more understanding as much as I have gained putting them together for us.

Thank You Lord Jesus for Your sacrificial love for each of us at the cross. We thank You and praise You for Your resurrection! Amen!
