Jesus was tortured, beaten spat on, mocked for being the King with a crown of thorns pushed into his head. He was made to carry a heavy wooden cross to the place where his hands and feet would be nailed to a that wooden cross. He was crucified, his side pierced with a sword and after much suffering he died for our sins.
He rose from the dead and entered the gates of heaven to be with his Father Our Lord
HE HAS RISEN.
In 1867 the above "garden tomb" was discovered near this believed location of Jesus' death. The connection of the "place of the skull" with the garden tomb believed to be where Jesus was buried was given prominence by British general Charles Gordon in 1883. This is why the above tomb location is also known as "Gordon's Tomb".
