The Place of the Skull
At that first Easter The Place of the Skull became the altar to sacrifice God.
An improbable messiah, Jesus the Christ stood before the raging the masses. From before time He was destined to be 'nailed' on a skull-shaped hill (Golgotha/Calvary) outside Jerusalem's walls.
But with loud shouts they insistently demanded He be crucified, and their shouts prevailed. (Luke 23:23)
Condemned under the wicked hearts of humanity, but clothed in the pure rags of humility - justice and mercy were withheld from this suspended Son of God.
The crowds abused in unison while Heaven wept in silence - yet Jesus would still bless them from His cross, despite His brokenness!
How quickly the Place of the Skull became Jesus' confirmed destination; unhindered evil will always be remarkably successful!
We may tip our hats to Easter, but Jesus tipped His heart.

'I am no more worthy to be forgiven than Jesus was to die.'
