Wesley's Notes for Matthew 27:33


27:33 A place called Golgotha, that is, the place of a skull - Golgotha in Syriac signifies a skull or head: it was probably called so from this time; being an eminence upon Mount Calvary, not far from the king's gardens. #Mark 15:22|; Luke 23:33; John 19:17


People's Bible Notes for Matthew 27:33


Mt 27:33 Golgatha. A Hebrew word, meaning a skull. From its Latin equivalent, "calvaria", comes our English word Calvary, which occurs in the English New Testament only in Luke, where it should be translated "a skull" (Lu 23:33). The name was due, either to a rounded rock like a skull, or to the fact that it was a place of execution and that skulls were lying there. The locality is not certainly known.
