Transcript of Biblical Allusions: Golgotha

John 19:20- "Then many of the Jews read this title, for the place where Jesus was crucified was nigh to the city, and it was written in Hebrew and Greek and Latin."
Biblical References
Allusion to Golgotha
"The door of the lighthouse was ajar. They pushed it open and walked into a
shuttered twilight. Through an archway on the further side of the room they
could see the bottom of the staircase that led up to the higher floors. Just under
the crown of the arch dangled a pair of feet."
(Brave New World, Aldous Huxley, pg 176)
How is this an Allusion?
Knowing the area in which Jesus Christ was crucified in enhances this allusion because John the Savage is brought to the lighthouse, which is near the city, just as Golgotha is near the city of Jerusalem where people are able to go and see. Also, at the end of the story, everybody witnesses John's death just as everybody witnessed Jesus' death.
What is Golgotha?
Golgotha, also called Calvary, is a skull-shaped hill in Jerusalem, the site of Jesus’ Crucifixion. It is referred to in all four Gospels. The hill of execution was outside the city walls of Jerusalem, apparently near a road and not far from the sepulchre where Jesus was buried. Its exact location is uncertain, but most scholars prefer either the spot now covered by the Church of the Holy Sepulchre or a hillock called Gordon’s Calvary just north of the Damascus Gate.

Golgotha is also known as "Place of a Skull"

Golgotha derives from Latin meaning "place of execution"

Picture of Traditional Site of Golgotha
The lighthouse in Brave New World symbolizes
Golgotha as it is the place where John the Savage sacrificed himself just as Jesus sacrificed himself on the hill.
