On Good Friday, it is tradition in Jerusalem for Christians to walk the “Via Dolorosa,” the path that Jesus walked with his cross.
The Church of the Holy Sepulchre is not the only traditional site of Jesus’ crucifixion and burial.
This is the second traditional site of the crucifixion. It’s hard to see, but supposedly an image of a skull can be seen in these rocks, hence “Golgotha.”
Some may be indignant to this idea, but our guide told us that there is no mention of a hill when describing the crucifixion site. It is more likely that the cross was on the ground next to the road, for all to see. Therefore, we were told the cross would not have been on top of the hill, but down near the fence.
Most of the group felt more of a spiritual presence at this site.
