Where is Golgotha: Where Jesus Died?

Written by

The crucifixion of Jesus took place at a site near Jerusalem called Golgotha. But exactly where was it located? Golgotha is the biblical name for the place where Jesus was crucified. It was probably a small hill just outside the walls of ancient Jerusalem. According to Christian tradition, it was within the area now occupied by the Church of the Holy Sepulchre. But some biblical scholars doubt that this is the correct location.

The Ending of the Gospel of Mark

Written by

Was the original ending of this gospel accidentally lost? Was a new ending added later? Ancient copies of the Gospel of Mark can have several different endings. The shortest ending is found in the oldest manuscripts, all of which stop at verse 16:8. Most later manuscripts contain some additional verses, not always the same, which were apparently added to the gospel at later points in time. Excluding minor variations, these later additions created three new endings. The authors of these new endings didn't identify themselves.

Lost Gospels

Written by

According to some estimates, early Christians wrote at least twenty gospels that weren't included in the bible. Many of these non-biblical gospels apparently disappeared later, although it's possible that copies of some of them still survive at unknown locations. Luckily, several that appeared to be missing have been found again in modern times. But some are still missing, and could be permanently lost.

The Nazarenes

Written by

After Jesus ascended to heaven, many of his followers stayed in Jerusalem and gathered into a closely-knit group that became known as the Nazarenes. According to Acts 1:13-16, the group initially had about 120 members, including Jesus' mother Mary and all of his brothers. The two main leaders were Simon Peter and the oldest brother of Jesus, who was called James the Just. During an early meeting a man named Matthias was chosen to replace the traitor Judas Iscariot in the inner circle of the twelve primary disciples.

Demonic Possession

Written by

Can people be possessed by demons? In ancient times many people believed that evil spirits can enter a person's body and take control of it. This was a common explanation for conditions such as epilepsy and madness. In modern terminology this "madness" probably referred to certain mental disorders such as schizophrenia and delirium. Even today, we still don't fully understand what causes these conditions. Ancient people, who had even less understanding, frequently put the blame on evil spirits.

Why Was Jesus Crucified?

Written by

What was the real reason he was put on the cross? According to the gospels, the main charge against Jesus was that he claimed to be the king of the Jews. The Roman soldiers were mocking this idea when they dressed him in a purple robe and pressed a crown of thorns onto his head. This was also the charge written on the sign at the top of the cross.

Pastor Youcef Nararkhani is a Christian Pastor awaiting execution in Iran. His apparent crime: Apostasy. He has an Islamic ancestry therefore, he must remain a Muslim. He was asked to recant his faith in Jesus Christ or die. He has been given opportunities to recant his faith and he refused.

Religions are supposed to be for the well-being of human beings, are they not? If the christian god and the muslim god are supposedly the same, do we suppose that that same god approve of this?

The discussion seems pretty petty doesn't it? If you strip away the fancy religious words like apostasy, recant and faith, we can boil this situation to it's basics, it pretty much goes like this:

  • A: Stop believing in Jesus, believe in what we believe.
  • B: No thanks. I like what I believe
  • A: We give you three chances to say yes
  • B: No. No. No.
  • A: Okay then, we kill you

How tragic. This to me, is yet again an example of the attrocities people inflict on each other because of their beliefs in their gods.
