Jesus' Crucifixion Location – Where was Jesus crucified?

John 19:19-21 records Jesus' crucifixion location.

“Pilate had a notice prepared and fastened to the cross. It read: JESUS OF NAZARETH, THE KING OF THE JEWS. Many of the Jews read this sign, for the place where Jesus was crucified was near the city, and the sign was written in Aramaic, Latin and Greek. The chief priests of the Jews protested to Pilate, ‘Do not write “The King of the Jews,” but that this man claimed to be king of the Jews.’"

Other authors in the Bible list Golgotha as the place of the crucifixion. "And when they were come unto a place called Golgotha, that is to say, a place of a skull" (Matthew 27:33).

"And they bring him unto the place Golgotha, which is, being interpreted, The place of a skull" (Mark 15:22).
