Only in Luke 23:33 , the Latin name Calvaria, which was used as a translation of the Greek word Kranion , By which the Hebrew word Gulgoleth Was interpreted, "the place of a skull." It probably took this name from its shape, being a hillock or low, rounded, bare elevation somewhat in the form of a human skull. It is nowhere in Scripture called a "hill." The crucifixion of our Lord took place outside the city walls ( Hebrews 13:11-13 ) and near the public thoroughfare. "This thing was not done in a corner." (See GOLGOTHA .)
