Jesus was not crucified in Jerusalem

Revelation shows Jesus was crucified in Qumran and not Jerusalem:
Revelation 11:08 reveals the correct place of the Crucifixion to be at Qumran instead of Jerusalem:
"and their dead bodies are upon the broad-place of the great city (that is called spiritually Sodom, and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified,)"

Let us dissect this sentence:

Sodom: Sodom and Gomorrah were located on the Dead Sea which is obvious because the Dead Sea is the Earth's lowest elevation on land and the deepest hypersaline lake in the world. (Their sites are believed to be at the south end of the Dead Sea.)

Egypt: this word is used for the place that Mary and Joseph hid out from Herod, but that is a long trip considering that there are many caves in the wilderness of Mird that the Zealots have successfully used in their fight against Rome. It was there that the Therapeuts from Alexandria, Egypt, camped. (They were the "shepherds" in the Bethlehem story.) They were led by Theudas, who was Jesus' disciple Thaddeus (Nicodemus). Significantly below, they cross the River Jordan (which is in that wilderness where John the Baptist baptized and ate locusts):
Josephus Antiquities Book 20.5,1 - The Fate of the Impostor Theudas
Now when Fadus was procurator of Judaea, a certain impostor named Theudas persuaded the mass of the rabble to take their belongings with them and follow him to the river Jordan; for he said that he was a prophet and would by a word of command divide the river and afford them an easy passage ; and by these words he deceived many. Fadus, however, did not allow them to reap the benefit of their folly. He dispatched against them a troop of horse which fell upon them unexpectedly and slew many and took many of them prisoners. They caught Theudas himself alive, cut off his head and carried it to Jerusalem. This was what befell the Jews under the procuratorship of Cuspius Fadus.

Acts 05:36 For before these days rose up Theudas, saying, that himself was some one, to whom a number of men did join themselves, as it were four hundred, who was slain, and all, as many as were obeying him, were scattered, and came to nought.

Acts 21:38 Are you (Paul) not the Egyptian who some time ago stirred up a rebellion and led the four thousand assassins out into the wilderness?” (Obviously he isn't.)

spiritually: This is just defining Sodom and Egypt as being the approximate location, but that the "spiritual' place would have to be Qumran of the Dead Sea Scrolls on the northwest shore of the Dead Sea.

In the Gospels the plural of Jerusalem stands for Qumran. See http://www.pesherofchrist.com/Jerusalem_Qumran1.html
