"Jesus had to carry his cross to Golgotha"

FALSE
"He carried the cross himself," writes John the Evangelist. In the other Gospels state that Jesus was led by soldiers to the fatal spot, but the cross was taken by a man named Simon of Kyrene. Simon is often represented in paintings helping to Jesus carrying the cross. The clearest is Luke - who writes the soldiers they forced Simon to carry Jesus' cross.
