Calvary
        

(Luke 23:33). The Latin translation of the Hebrew GOLGOTHA, "the place of a skull," a place of executions. A fit place; in death's stronghold the Lord of life gave death his deathblow through death (Hebrews 2:14). There is no "mount," such as popular phraseology associates with Calvary. It was simply "a low, rounded bore hill" outside the N. gate of Jerusalem (Ewald, Gesch. Chronicles, 434, quoted in Ellicott's Life of our Lord.)
