"Where is Golgotha?" by Steve Savage "King of the Beasts"

"and he went out, bearing his own cross, to the place called the place of a skull, which in Aramaic is called Golgotha." (John 19:17)

Because we have been taught that Christ was crucified in Golgotha or Calvary, which means "The Place of the Skull," there has been a search, throughout the Age of Christendom, for the exact location of this site. Perhaps we've been looking at too close a distance to truly understand where it is. The truth may be hidden in plain sight. A fly looking for the Mona Lisa would be in much the same predicament if it were landed on the nose of the portrait's visage. Consider this excerpt from The Book of Revelations:

"and their dead bodies will lie in the street of the great city which is allegorically called Sodom and Egypt, where their Lord was crucified." (Revelation 11:8)

What? Christ crucified in Egypt? But we have always heard that it was in Jerusalem. If the Bible is The Word of God and Scripture cannot be broken, how can this be?

Here is one possible answer that satisfies the mystery. "Egypt" means the Dark World or Black Land and this refers to the entire known world of its time. In that sense, Christ would have been crucified on the Planet Earth. But where on Planet Earth? Looking down on Earth from Space, there is a place that looks very much like a Skull. We call it the continent of Africa.

Christ was crucified in the Geographic Frontal Lobe.
