Mark 15:22-23

Context
15:22 They brought Jesus 1  to a place called Golgotha 2  (which is translated, “Place of the Skull”). 3  15:23 They offered him wine mixed with myrrh, 4  but he did not take it.

1 tn Grk “him.”

2 tn Grk “a place, Golgotha.” This is an Aramaic name; see John 19:17.

3 sn The place called Golgotha (which is translated “Place of the Skull”). This location is north and just outside of Jerusalem. The hill on which it is located protruded much like a skull, giving the place its name. The Latin word for the Greek term κρανίον (kranion) is calvaria, from which the English word “Calvary” is derived (cf. Luke 23:33 in the KJV).

4 sn It is difficult to say for certain who gave Jesus this drink of wine mixed with myrrh (e.g., the executioner, or perhaps women from Jerusalem). In any case, whoever gave it to him most likely did so in order to relieve his pain, but Jesus was unwilling to take it.
