A drunken man staggered up to a New York policeman and asked how to find a night club called “Hell’s Gate.”
“See that steeple over there?” asked the policeman. “That’s the steeple of Calvary Church. Just keep going past Calvary and you’ll come to Hell’s Gate.”
See: John 19:17-19; 1 Corinthians 1:18; Philippians 3:18-19

Only found 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.”
