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.

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.
