Who helped Jesus Carry His Cross?

I am wondering who the man that helped Jesus carry his cross up to the cucifixion was?

I have read that his name was either Simon or Simeon...

Does anyone know for sure??

I got to wondering where Cyrene is. You don't find it mentioned often in the Bible. So I dug out my Mom's Bible Dictionary. According to it Cyrene was founded in B.C. 632 by the Greeks. It is Libya/Africa. Interesting huh? Seems they had a synagogue in Rome. I love Biblical history.

32 As they went out, they found a man of Cyrene, Simon by name. They compelled this man to carry his cross. 33 And when they came to a place called Golgotha (which means Place of a Skull).

yes, you are correct. After Judas betrayed jesus, he took the price on Jesus's head (30 silvers) and gave them to the potters field, as God had commanded, then hung himself for betraying innocent blood. Then the crowd chooses Barabbus, with several counts of murder and stealing under his belt. After that, they found simon, of ceyrene, and got him to carry the cross for the holy one.

... just in case you wanted to know all of that, which you probably already did, but...
