Crucifixion site

Ernest L. Martin makes a convincing case that Jesus was crucified near the southern peak of the Mount of Olives. That this was the site of the altar where the red heifer was burnt. The church of the holy sepulcher was founded about 326AD by Constantine’s mother as the result of visions. He also points out that the garden tomb has only looked like a skull for about the last 150 years, because the rock face has been changing due to erosion.
