Alexander the Great and Solar Eclipses

The solar eclipse template follows the mythology associated with the foundation of Rome with the lives of Romulus and Remus. Roman emperors followed solar eclipses to show solidarity with Romulus and Alexander. Once again Birth , Foundation , and Death follow solar eclipse patterns. Why is this important to JudaeoChristian theology? Solar darkening events with the birth, baptism, and crucifixion of Jesus Christ are a direct confrontation to the authority of this world. Jesus Christ may have been born between two solar eclipses seen over Judaea in 6 BC. His baptism was at the solar eclipse of AD November 24, 0029. The Crucifixion darkening event of AD April 3 , 0033 was unparalleled in the Roman world. The Kingship and Divinity of Jesus Christ is a direct challenge to the authority of Alexander, Herod, Caesar and every world leader today.
