David and the Head of Goliath of Gath

Everyone knows the story of David and Goliath.  Many are probably not aware, however, of what happened next.  That was the subject of James Hoffmeier’s recent lecture at the Bible and Archaeology Fest.  “Exploring David’s Strange Antics after Defeating Goliath” looked specifically at 1 Samuel 17:53-54:

Golgatha: The Word Symbolizes A Beautiful Reality!

In the Gospels we read that our Lord Jesus Christ was crucified for our sins at a place called “Golgotha.”

The Place of a Skull

“Golgotha” is from the Hebrew “gulgoleth” (skull; it is turned into New Testament Greek as “kranion” (cranium) and in the Latin Vulgate becomes “Calvaria.” The last of these names has found its way into the English Bible and into common use simply through the influence of the Bible of the church of Rome. It should therefore be used specially by those who have strong sympathies with Rome.

Open Bible Stories: Jesus Is Crucified

After the soldiers mocked Jesus, they led him away to crucify him.They made him carry the cross on which he would die. The soldiers brought Jesus to a place called “the Skull” and nailedhis hands and feet to the cross.

Eloi, Eloi, Lama Sabachtha

ē ́loi, ē̇-lō ́ī, la ́ma, sa-bakh-tha ́ni, or (Ἐλωί, ελωί, λαμὰ σαβαχθανεί, Elōí, elōí, lamá sabachthaneí): The forms of the first word as translated vary in the two narratives, being in Mark as first above and in Mt as in second reading. With some perversions of form probably from Psalms 22:1 (אלי אלי למה עזבתּני, ‘ēlī ‘ēlī lāmāh ‛ăzabhtānī). A statement uttered by Jesus on the cross just before his death, translated, “My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?” (Matthew 27:46; Mark 15:34).

Calvary

Calvary, also Golgotha /ˈgɒlgəθə/, was, according to the Gospels, a site immediately outside Jerusalem’s walls where Jesus was crucified. Golgotha(s) (Greek: Γολγοθᾶ; alternative later form Γολγοθᾶς) is the Greek transcription in the New Testament of an Aramaic term that has traditionally been presumed to be Gûlgaltâ (but see below for an alternative). The Bible translates the term to mean place of [the] skull, which in Greek is Κρανίου Τόπος (Kraníou Tópos), and in Latin is Calvariæ Locus, from which the English word Calvary is derived.
