One of the larger Christian objections to the validity of the Blood Moons was:  “If they are so important, why didn’t they happen in the time of Christ.”  Indeed, while there were Blood Moons in 32 AD on Passover and Sukkot, in Passover and Sukkot in 33 AD there were only partial lunar eclipses.

However, I want to tell you something I have never written before, and it connects directly to my interview with Lesley Richardson (published in this week’s newsletter). When Lesley’s writings helped me connect the idea of the “Four I Wills” to the “Four Blood Moons” I later recalled in my mind the comments by Jesus concerning the “cup” he took in the last supper.

Are there not four cups of wine at a standard Passover?  And wan’t the cup of the new covenant of the Last Supper the third cup? In such a case, if the moons were connected to the cups AND the “Four I Wills” then prophetically speaking it could make very natural sense that TWO of the four moons were fully eclipsed in 32 AD, but the last two were partial eclipses.

Watch the video of my interview with Lesley, think about this idea, and tell me what you think! Maybe there is something we can learn here together.

    The term 33AD and 32 AD is not the exact date of Jesus’Christ’s crucifixion. A few historians say that He was born on 8AD. This is in conjunction with the reign of Augustus Caesar and Herod mentioned in the Gospel of Matthew.

      Hi Raphaelle, I think you may mean 8 BC/BCE rather than 8 AD, but happy to see more on that if you add the sources. Anyway, we could do a whole study on that topic, but I have, over a very long process, found more and more evidence that the date of 33 AD (or CE as it is called these days) is actually correct. Most of the theories of Jesus being born in 6 BC come from a statement from Josephus about a lunar eclipse that occurred just before Herod the Great’s death, which was soon after the slaughter of the innocents in Bethlehem. But there is also a lunar eclipse in January 10, 1 BC that makes the 33 AD date work out quite nicely. In addition, the church fathers were almost unanimous in their belief that it was on (or at least very close to) 33 AD. They had the history and had eyewitness accounts, so it should not have been nearly so much a mystery for them, as it is for us. Blessings, Bob.

    The lunar eclipse had to be visible in Jerusalem to be “valid”. PLSV tells me
    that there was a partial lunar eclipse (21% darkening) on 25 Apr 31 AD which coincided with 14 Nisan. During 33 AD there was a 86% partial eclipse on 27 Sep 33 AD, during Sukkoth.There were no lunar eclipses during 32 AD, or 34 AD for that matter.

      Hi Dirk, Thanks for writing! I didn’t check visibility from Israel on all the dates you mentioned, but I did check that the partial lunar eclipse on Passover 33 AD was visible from Israel in the Eastern sky after sunset. Blessings, Bob.
