Ron examined very carefully the Cross-Hole that was set on a platform higher than the others. If this was indeed the site of the Crucifixion of Jesus Christ, then this would undoubtedly be the site of Jesus’ Cross-Hole.
A square-cut limestone plug, measuring about 13 inches square, had been placed in the Cross-Hole. This was presumably to prevent debris falling into the Cross-Hole. It had finger grips on each side.
Ron removed the limestone plug, and revealed a square hole, that had been cut into the bed rock about 3 feet deep, and 13 inches square. At Roman crucifixions the upright Stipes Crucis, about 9 feet high, was placed into this hole before the actual crucifixion. For full medical details of the Crucifixion see our presentation on this web site.
The limestone plug is now on permanent exhibition at the Wyatt Archaeological Museum in Nashville, Tennessee, USA.
