Where is Calvary
Putting this up early because I have a treat for you for tomorrow. My husband wrote another letter to the family, no – not to Buzz the Wonderdog, but a piece of his history, a bit traumatic, a bit illuminating, some wonderful pictures and information – the subject – eggplants. Hold your breath, and I will post it later. I feel I owe it to him to let him send it to the family first. Trust me, it is worth it!
I am reading a book by Gordon Lindsay, The Life and Teachings of Christ, and I am amazed at the wonderful way God will share information. Right now the book is covering the crucifixion of Jesus, and pages 240-242 cover what I am studying in Genesis.
Where Is Calvary Located?
Before we conclude the story of the crucifixion, there is a question often asked that we may consider. It is this: “Where is Calvary and the tomb where Jesus was laid located?” We believe that an authoritative answer can be given to this question. We wish to give acknowledgment to L. T. Pearson, whose booklet, Where is Calvary? is a scholarly investigation of the subject and which is the source for much of the data used in the following pages:
And in II Chronicles 7:12, 16, the Lord said it was to be His place for sacrifice, that His name might be there forever. The temple that Solomon built did not cover the whole Mt. Moriah, only the southern part of it. Mt. Moriah runs north beyond the wall of the city and reaches its highest point at Calvary or Golgotha. This is the place where Christ was crucified. The gospel writers are very precise in this statement: (Mark 15:22, Luke 23:33).
I love how God works, making everything tie in together so well. I hope this blesses you, I love the history of things.
