As with many places mentioned in the Bible, it is impossible to be certain of their locations today. Where Jesus was crucified on the cross is one of those unknown locations. A Roman Catholic Church named The Church of the Holy Sepulcher has been built over the spot where some believe the crucifixion, and eventual burial of Jesus, took place. Others believe that the crucifixion took place on the Mount of Olives itself. Another possible location, shown above, is just north of Jerusalem’s old city walls. The spot is called “skull hill” because some people believe they can see the shape of a skull in the rocks on the cliff. It is also known that the Roman Empire carried out executions on this hill.
