Jesus Christ and the solar eclipse

There it was, Golgotha's hill. The very place where three crosses stood. And as we know from the beautiful Easter story, the moment Jesus died, was the same moment that the sky blackened and the temple veil ripped in two.

That, I believe was one of the first events that was ever historically recorded as a sky darkening solar eclipse in the middle of the day.The first recorded eclipse being May 13th, 1357 BC. A crowd was on the hill watching Jesus die, just as today when we gathered together in groups and crowds, and watched in wonder as the 2017 solar eclipse happened on Monday.

But how do we know of this great event during the death of Christ? It was recorded by three different men who were at the same place. Don’t believe me? Come with me and let me show you from the greatest book ever written, Matthew, Mark, and Luke’s account from the gospels.

Now from the sixth hour there was darkness over all the land unto the ninth hour…..(Matt 27:45)

And when the sixth hour was come, there was darkness over the whole land until the ninth hour….(Mark 15:33)

And it was about the sixth hour, and there was a darkness over all the earth until the ninth hour…(Luke 23:44)

So as many of us stood and watched in awe at the beauty and wonder of the solar eclipse on Monday so will many of us stand in terror when Christ returns to righteously judge the earth when he comes again. The second coming. In the past twenty-four hours I came across this video on youtube and brings up a good point.
