    Golgotha – The Place of the Scull

      Calvary - Skull Hill

          Temptation on the Cross

            Temptation of Jesus Christ on the Cross

            In his first epistle, the Apostle Peter gave us this warning: “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour” (1 Pet. 5:8) Satan repeatedly tempted Jesus, seeking to make Christ fall. Immediately after Jesus was baptized, the Holy Spirit led Him into the […]
