I've heard that Mount Moriah (Genesis 22:2) and Golgotha (Mark 15:22) are the same place. Is this true?
KJV - 22 And they bring him unto the place Golgotha, which is, being interpreted, The place of a skull.

My understanding is that there has been a correlation mentioned or suggested between Mount Moriah (the site where God told Abraham to sacrifice Isaac) and the Temple Mount (the site of the temple built by Solomon in Jersualem), but not Golgotha specifically (although the Temple Mount and Golgotha are (again, as I understand it) within approximately 300 meters of each other, but with the temple being within the old city walls of Jerusalem, and Golgotha being outside the walls).
