Total Solar Eclipse of 29 AD, Seen by Jesus Christ

This eclipse would have been seen around the time of Jesus starting His gospel ministry in His early 30's. This assumes His earliest birth around 6 BC and crucifixion April 3, 33 AD. This also was at the time of the beheading of John the Baptist. To the Hebrews the solar eclipse in November of 29AD would have been in the 8th month. According to tradition the 8th month is when the Flood began with Noah. A solar eclipse is associated with God's judgement. Jesus Christ started his ministry with a solar eclipse, ending with Him accepting God's Judgement on the cross for our sin.
