The Old Testament Unveiled: Golgotha and the Sixth Day of Creation

That God chose to create Adam on a Friday, the 6th day of creation, has profound implications for our understanding of what Jesus did for us on the sixth day of the week, on Good Friday. In the latest episode of The Old Testament Unveiled, we delve into what it means that Christ hung atop a cross over the grave of Adam–at Golgotha, the hill traditionally understood to be the place of Adam’s skull. Thanks for watching!

What we need in our fragmented world, full of hurting people, is the love of Jesus Christ, who InfantPriestfrontcoverwelcomes home sinners with a grace that knows no bounds. My book Christ Alone: Meditations and Sermons, is packed with reflections that go that extra mile of grace. Again and again, they present the Christ who is crucified and risen for you. Please take a moment to check it out here. You may also be interested in my collections of hymns and poetry entitled, The Infant Priest, which you can purchase here. Both books are also available on Amazon, as is my booklet Why Lutherans Sing What They Sing (also on Kindle). Thank you for your prayers and support!

    The Gospel of Genesis…I have never seen that connection with the sixth day- Friday. Thank you for that insight. Keep up this wonderful work you are doing.

    I had heard once that Golgotha, the place of the skull, was the place where David buried the head of Goliath after he brought the severed head to Jerusalem. Hence “Gol Goliath” (skull of Goliath) or “Golgotha” in ancient Hebrew texts. Would that not be just like our Wonderful God to tie together Adam, King David, and Jesus? Son of man, Son of David, Son of God. And His enemy satan in the garden with Adam and in the giant Goliath with David and at the crucifixion with Jesus. “…he shall bruise your head and you shall bruise his heel”.
