John 19:17 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

17 and carrying the cross himself[a] he went out to what is called the Place of the Skull, in Hebrew, Golgotha.

Footnotes:

  1. 19:17 Carrying the cross himself: a different picture from that of the synoptics, especially Lk 23:26, where Simon of Cyrene is made to carry the cross, walking behind Jesus. In John’s theology, Jesus remained in complete control and master of his destiny (cf. Jn 10:18). Place of the Skull: the Latin word for skull is Calvaria; hence “Calvary.” Golgotha is actually an Aramaic rather than a Hebrew word.
