Golgotha and the Garden Tomb photograph

Postby DestinationLight77 » Sat Mar 11, 2017 4:01 am

Hello there, I've been doing some independent personal research into the Jesus' of Nazareth's crucifixion, specifically as it regards the site known as Gordon's Golgotha and the Garden Tomb. I'm seeking to put together the pieces and better understand the geography of the area, in order to determine in my own mind if these sites are historically relevant. I found an image on your website titled "Golgotha and the Garden Tomb, photograph by CES", listed as photograph number 18. at the following link: https://www.lds.org/ensign/1983/04/the-land-jesus-knew-part-4?lang=eng.

This image is perfect in my seeking to reconcile the relation of the two aforementioned locations one to another, the only problem is that the image is so small I can't really tell! If it were possible to view or get a digital copy in a large resolution, I would be eternally grateful. Please let me know, thank you,

The photo appears to be the area surrounding the traditional protestant site of the Garden Tomb – maybe this Google satellite view would be helpful:
The Saint-Étienne / St. Stephen's Basilica is a good, identifiable building from above to match the photo to the satellite view.
