Intriguing new book and DVD from Robert (Bob) Cornuke, president of the BASE Institute in Monument, Colorado
By Dan Wooding, Founder of ASSIST News Service
MIDDLE EAST (ANS – October 14, 2016) — Could it be remotely possible that historians and scholars alike have completely missed the correct placement as to where Christ was crucified? Yes, claims Robert (Bob) Cornuke, who is the president of the BASE Institute in Monument Colorado.
According to Bonnie Brown, a philanthropist who has helped Cornuke with his research, “His research first brings into question the two most popular places where the majority of Bible students accept as the true Crucifixion sites; that being the Church of the Holy Sepulcher and Gordon’s Calvary.”
“Robert Cornuke dismisses those two aforementioned sites as simply being traditional placements with many Biblical and geographical flaws. Cornuke then proposes an altogether different place for the Crucifixion; namely the Palestinian occupied Silwan Village which is about 600 feet east of the City of David in Jerusalem.”
She went on to say, “Using the Bible as his map and old photographic imagery from the 1800’s Robert Cornuke puts together the pieces of an ancient sacred puzzle. He is assisted in his research by his investigative skills as a former police investigator. Could he have unlocked an age old mystery and found the true place of the crucifixion? The answer to that may stun all who dare read his new book which is simply called Golgotha.”
Ron Matsen, CEO of Koinonia House & Koinonia Institute (http://www.khouse.org/), publisher of the book and DVD, warned that they would “challenge your understanding as to where Jesus Christ was crucified.”
He went on to say, “Known for his detective approach to Bible archaeology, Bob Cornuke sets aside the emotionally held traditions of the past that may have obscured the pathway to truth and opens the door to a whole new way of finding the Biblical site of the crucifixion. By using the compass of solid evidence, Bob charts a course for discovery that will thrill the willing Bible explorer who is on a quest for truth. Don’t let tradition get in the way of truth. A must-read for the serious Bible student.”
Dr. Frank Turek, President of CrossExamined.org asked the important question of where was the “world’s most infamous murder committed?” and then added, “Using eyewitness testimony of the gospels and the discovery of some ancient tombs just east of Jerusalem, Bob Cornuke’s Golgotha makes a captivating case that Jesus didn’t die where tradition tells us he did. Uh, oh. Some people steeped in tradition won’t like this. But
