An archaeologist has used the Holy Bible to locate where Jesus Christ was really crucified. He found an area different from what has traditionally been believed to be the site of the crucifixion.
Robert Cornuke, a known Biblical investigator and author of various books linking the Holy Bible to archaeology, set out to challenge long-held beliefs that Jesus was crucified and died in the place now known as the Church of the Holy Sepulchre and Gordon's Calvary, both located in Jerusalem in Israel.
After his research, Cornuke suggested that the crucifixion was not done in these places. He floated the idea that Jesus Christ died on the cross in the Palestinian-occupied Silwan Village, which is about 600 feet east of the City of David in Jerusalem.
Bonnie Brown, a philanthropist who has helped Cornuke with his research, explained that the archaeologist sought to correct a "geographical flaw" in relation to the site of the crucifixion through his research.
"Using the Bible as his map and old photographic imagery from the 1800's Robert Cornuke puts together the pieces of an ancient sacred puzzle. He is assisted in his research by his investigative skills as a former police investigator," Brown said, as quoted by Assist News.
Cornuke documented his investigation on the site of the crucifixion and compiled it in a book called "Golgotha: Searching for the True Location of Christ's Crucifixion."
Ron Matsen, chief executive officer of the Koinonia House which published Cornuke's new book, said the archaeologist set aside "emotionally held traditions of the past that may have obscured the pathway to truth and opens the door to a whole new way of finding the Biblical site of the crucifixion."
"By using the compass of solid evidence, Bob charts a course for discovery that will thrill the willing Bible explorer who is on a quest for truth. Don't let tradition get in the way of truth," Matsen said.
