Christians, would you mind telling me what "the place of skulls" means?

Was this the name before Jesus died or named after?

  • no it doesn't matter, but then I would like to know if it was historical naming. If was named this because a lot of people died.

    I will assume you do not know that is why you didn't answer.

    As for your above answer, I wonder if there is a reason. Many words can be broken down to learn the meaning . It is called etymology or something like that.

  • Why it's named that?


    1) the hill actually kind of looks like a skull - photo here: http://www.arkdiscovery.com/golgotha-flowers2.JPG


    2) it was frequently used execution grounds.
