What’s wrong with our images of tall crosses in terms of its accuracy? What does this heal bone with a nail in it prove? How long does it take to die by crucifixion?
My own studies showed why Jesus died quicker than people usually did. Also, that Jesus definitely did die on a tree.

Where was Jesus crucified? Using the model of the first century Jerusalem, this picture is a good representation of Golgotha. Dr Fleming explained how Golgotha came to look like this.
The Church of the Holy Sepulchre is the most likely place for the crucifixion. Dr Fleming explains many things to show why this must be true. This recording is continued in the next clip.
The Church of the Holy Sepulchre was built in a most difficult place, with a difference in the bedrock of 5 stories. Also, the followers of Jesus only fled for 3 years, from 70 AD until 73 AD. This makes it a very strong tradition.
Dr Fleming explained why it looks ugly and what happened throughout the centuries to make it look as it does today. Also, he explains the difficulties with it now being owned by 6 denominations.

The Church of the Holy Sepulchre has a Herodian-styled tomb in it. Also, the fact that a pagan temple was built on top was another evidence it was here. The Garden Tomb had only geographical evidence, no historical or archaeological evidence like the Church of the Holy Sepulchre.
When we go to the Garden Tomb we have 2 different men that were guides for this site explaining why it could be here that Jesus was crucified. But then Dr Fleming sums up the reasons it was at the Holy Sepulchre and acknowledges the Garden Tomb is a nicer place to remember it.
Changes for my website
After I had students help me improve my website last year, I did a lot of work to add and change many things. But my “Contact Us” webpage didn’t get fixed so my users could reach me. Also, there were other technical things that could improve my website. Now I have a student who plans to finish what I started last year in May of this year. Check for any adjustments in May at the bottom of my blog index.

My Focus in Blogging
My story of forgiveness and healing is quite unrelated to envisioning the Bible world. But since our world is sin and pain infested, I suspect many will want to hear more about my personal experience. I wrote a couple of blogs about this, but mostly I focused on envisioning the Bible world. I learned lots after being in Israel, and now I can share that with you.
Plans for Improved Website:
Now that my documentary links are all moved under the Tour Israel menu heading, I’ll see if I can get my website working better for the visually impaired. This requires a lot of work and my student may be too busy with other technical fixes. I’ll see what I can get done by the end of May, 2023.
Thanks for your interest.
