Eclipse of 6 BC,"The Slaughter of the Innocents"

Some research suggests Jesus Christ was born on the Jewish Feast of Tabernacles which would have been in September of 6 BC. After the birth of Jesus, His earthly father Joseph was instructed by an angel to take his family and flee to Egypt. Herod in his desire to kill the infant Jesus slaughtered children two years or younger. It indicates how ancients thought about time and celestial events. Time frames to the ancients were much broader than our time frame today. Herod died in 4 BC and rebellion broke out in Galilee. The Galilee was destroyed by Varus and Aretas IV.

2000 years ago the cross was a Roman symbol of death and terror. Jesus Christ transformed this symbol into a universal sign of God's love, hope and resurrection. Solar eclipse events are recorded in Roman mythology during the conception of Romulus and Remus by the war god Mars and during the foundation of the city of Rome. The solar eclipse to the Romans was a sign from their gods that war was upon the Earth. The solar eclipse symbol of the star/pellet within the crescent on Roman coins and legionary standards was also a sign of their god's approval of Roman domination over conquered lands. Fifteen hundred years later, the "Our Lady of Guadalupe" Icon was presented to the New World as an inverted Roman Legionary Standard. Jesus Christ changed these symbols of Roman domination and slavery into an everlasting sign of God's love and compassion.
