The Skull of Adam Was Buried Beneath the Cross of Christ

This is an interesting account of the translation of Adam’s bones to Noah and on to Melchisedeck who was the Priest/King of Salem (Jerusalem). Melchisedeck placed them on a hill outside the city. Even the Jews of Our Lord’s time believed this. Hence they called the Mount Golgotha, which means “Mount of the skull.” Not skulls, but THE skull. I would correct, however, Mr. Smith for using a faulty translation of the protoevangelium of Genesis 3:15. He uses the modern translation, as in the New American Bible, which replaced “she shall crush thy head” with “he will strike at your head.” The Douay, from the Latin Vulgate, has the former “she” not “he.”
