This rocky cliff, which resembles a skull and is just outside of Jerusalem’s Damascus Gate (John 19:17, 20), is a possible site of Golgotha, where the Crucifixion took place.

Significant Event: After Jesus was scourged and mocked, He was brought to “a place called Golgotha, … a place of a skull,” where He was crucified (Matt. 27:26–35; John 19:17–18). (See BD Golgotha.)
