According to the NASA eclipse website, there was a total lunar (blood moon) eclipse on Passover of 32 AD. It lasted 3 hours and 43 minutes, starting around noon, and was thus occurring at 3 pm Jerusalem time, the very time of Christ’s death on the cross (the “ninth hour”), according to Matthew 27:45-50, Mark 15:34-37, and Luke 23:44-46. God said, “I will cause the sun to go down at noon and I will darken the earth in the clear day” (Amos 8:9). The darkness described in scripture over Jerusalem was not caused by this eclipse, however, which was centered in the Pacific and not seen over Jerusalem. Darkness may have been caused instead by a severe storm and dust blocking the sun because of an earthquake that day. The 32 AD Passover eclipse does feature a “Tetrad-like” pattern of solar and lunar eclipses surrounding it, like the Tetrads on Holy Days of chapters 2 and 6, including those in 2014 and 2015. In summary, 32 AD did have, (1) a total lunar, blood-moon eclipse (but not visible over Jerusalem; (2) It occurred on Passover; (3) It was occurring at 3 pm Jerusalem time, the time of Christ’s death on the cross; And (5) It featured an 8-part Tetrad-like sequence, with blood moons on both Passover and Tabernacles that year.

Note        In the chart above there is three hours difference from 11:57 TD (similar to Greenwich Mean Time as used by NASA, or very near 12 noon) to 2:57 pm in Jerusalem, or very near 3 pm, the time of Christ’s death on the cross. This is the “ninth hour” as reported by Matthew 27:45-50, Mark 15:34-37, and Luke 23:44-46.
