All Inhabitants of the Earth will Worship the Beast--all whose Names have not been written in the Lamb's Book of Life, the Lamb who was Slain from the Creation of the World. – Revelation 13:8

The purpose of this study is to present several Points of Interest that give Credence to the purported Birth Date of Jesus Christ, as Messiah on September 11, -3 BC (9-11). Although the Date is in dispute, more so is the Date of Christ’s Crucifixion and Resurrection. The Popular Notion of a 33 AD Date and/or Jesus being the year of His Death is idealistic, but there is little, Real Concrete Facts or Calculations. This can be said for the other Supposed Dates.

The 32 AD will solely be based On Astronomical Patterns taken from the Lunar and Solar Cycles since September 11, -3 BC and the Mazzaroth Pattern of the Life and Death Cycles corresponding to the Precession of the Equinox. Contrary to Popular Belief, there was no Tetrad of 4 Consecutive Blood Moons from 27 to 34 AD, well within the scope of the possible Crucifixion of Christ on Calvary. There were 6 Solar Eclipses in a row in 32 AD and 4 Lunar Eclipse from April of 32 Ad to September of 33 AD. There is only 1 possible Eclipse that occurs during this Time-Frame on a Passover. And that was a Total Lunar Eclipse or Blood Moon, April 14, 32 AD. This study suggests that this Date is the Best Candidate for the Crucifixion Date of Jesus.

Also, there are few Times in History where the Jewish and Western Calendars Synchronize. One such year was in 2014 where Passover occurred on the 14th of April and coincidentally it was a Blood Moon that commenced the Tetrad of 2014-15. It also occurred around Midnight; such was the case in the Passover of 32 AD, exactly 1982 Years Ago. The Full Blood Moon occurred on the 14th of April in 32 AD as all Passovers have to start with a Full Moon. Note that the beginning of the Religious Year began with a Solar Eclipse on Nisan 1, as if to ‘Start the Eclipse Count’.

Again, what was peculiar about this Full Moon was that it was a Blood Moon. Perhaps it was Reminiscent of the Blood Moon that occurred the very Midnight Hour of the 1st Passover in Egypt. It was on that Day that the Destroying Angel visited the Land of Egypt and took the First-Born, as was the case with Jesus Christ. How so? The Messiah is titled, the ‘First Born of Creation’. Jesus was Sacrificed on the Altar of Calvary. The Blood Moon occurred also in the Middle of the Constellation Libra, the ‘Scales’. But in some Ancient Renditions of the Mazzaroth, it was an Altar of Sacrifice. This Altar of Sacrifice during Passover is in association with Mount Moriah.

Altar of Sacrifice
Mount Moriah extends all the way to the Damascus Gate Area. It is also called Mount Calvary in Latin. The Motif of a Father and Son would collaborate with the depiction of Isaac and Christ, being offered on a Slab; a Son being sacrificed by a Father Typology. Perhaps it was the very Spot in which the Event with Abraham and Isaac took place. The Dual Connotation though, as to the Scales of Libra, denotes the Judgment and Wrath of YHVH that was placed on Christ, GOD the Son. The Cross of Calvary in essence became, as the ‘Altar’ of Libra. As to the possible Age of Jesus Christ when He Died?

Consider that from Rosh HaShanah -3 BC of September 11 to the Passover of April 14, 32 AD would be the 33rd year of Age of Christ as there is no ‘0’ Year in Time. An approximate 3.5 Year Ministry, from Rosh HaShanah of 28 AD would correspond to the April 32 AD Crucifixion. The Charts will visually denote the Lifespan of Jesus Christ, assuming that the September 11, -3 BC Date is the actual Date of Christ’s Birth. Astronomically, a Fall Birth and a Spring Death would follow the Mazzaroth or Zodiac Cycles of Stations or Seasons.

The Gospels states that Jesus was ‘about’ 30 Years Old when He was Baptized, suggesting that He had not yet turned 30 as that was the age that Rabbis could take on Disciples and start a Legitimate Public Ministry. If the September 11, -3 BC Birth Date is accurate, Jesus had to wait until the Fall Feasts to turn 30 to commence His Ministry of Proclaiming the Kingdom and Calling for the National Repentance of Israel. Thus, the 1st Miracle of the Marriage in Cana shortly after His Baptism and near the Summer Timing of turning the Water into Wine was indeed His 1st Miracle before His Time.

The illustrated Timelines for this study will show that the last 3 Years of Jesus Christ’s Life presents an Alternative View of the Timing of the Historical Sequence leading-up to the Crucifixion of Jesus. A 3.5 Year Period is marked by a Planetary Alignment associated with Jesus’ Baptism, then leading-up to His Death. It is also seen at the beginning of Christ’s Lifespan as a distinct Star of David Planetary Alignments have been identified by the research of John C. Webb. This Alignment also occurred 3.5 Years, leading-up to Jesus’ Birth.

The Passover Week Timeline presented, also challenges the Traditional Understanding of when the actual Crucifixion and Death of Jesus Christ took place at the Age of 33. For example, a Friday Crucifixion taught by Organized Roman Religion has contributed to a Gross Misunderstanding of when Jesus actually was Crucified, Buried and was Risen. The Timelines presented, stipulates that the Crucifixion was on a Wednesday. This made the Crucifixion of Jesus Christ on a Special Sabbath Afternoon. It was in the ‘Midst’, just as Daniel was told. It occurred during the mid-week called the High Day Sabbath or Preparation Day due to the Passover Meal Observance. This study also assumes that the 3 Days and 3 Nights Jesus was Dead and Buried were literal 24 Hour Periods of Time.

An Astronomical Lifespan
This specific Crucifixion Time was pegged to the Sign of Jonah that Christ Himself gave to the Elders of Israel. If Christ Died on Passover, a Wednesday at the 9th Hours which is 3pm, exactly as the Lambs were being Slaughtered for the Passover at the Temple, then exactly 3 Days and 3 Nights could correspond to a Resurrection at the Corresponding 9th Hour, precisely. This Timing would put the Resurrection of Jesus in the Garden Tomb at around 3pm Saturday. It was just before Twilight and before the Conclusion of the Weekly Sabbath. It was only on Sunday when ‘He had risen’, early in the Morning that the Women found Him already Risen.

As to the Order of the Coming Resurrection-Rapture? The Bible states in Romans 6:4 that as Christ was Resurrected, in like manner, those in Christ would in the same manner be Resurrected, perhaps in the very same hour. It will be at this Time that the Glorification of the Body is to take place. As it has been stated, another Point of Interest, as to the Timing of the Crucifixion is based on or related to the Precession of the Equinox. It is relative to the Pattern found in the Mazzaroth of Zodiac Cycles of Life and Death. How so? This study proposes that the Birth and Death of Messiah was pegged to a 33° Angle taken from the Cardinal Lines or Points of the Zodiac Circle of Time.

The Number 33 is a Sacred Demarcation of Time and Space. The Times are marked by a 33.33 Dissection of a Geometric Circle. And? If the Geometry is Fused with the Mathematics of Jesus’ Birth and Death, 3 degrees from the 30th Degree Arc of a Circle would precisely correspond to April 14 and September 11. Again this Assertion is solely based on the Astronomical Cycles or Stations of a Circle. It does appear that the Jesus’ Birth and Death coincided to Astronomical Alignments, precisely on Moedims or YHVH’s Appointed Times pegged to the Sun, Moon and the Stars, etc.

Given these Astronomical Conditions, Christ’s Birth would confirm a Fall Birth, Rosh HaShanah. It mirrors Mathematically and Geometrically His Death in the Spring at a Passover. To reiterate, this Pattern would coincide with the Cycles of ‘Life and Death’ Astronomically, but in Reverse Order. Why? The Fall signifies the descent into Winter, but that is the Time Messiah was Born. Likewise the Spring is a Station of ‘Life’, but it was the Time that Christ Died. Perhaps this is YHVH’s way of Reversing the Curse of the Fall of Mankind’s Natural Course of Life and Death Cycles. This Death was introduced by the Original Sin of the 1st Humans, Adam and Eve in the Garden.

-Beginning of Life Cycle: April 14, 32 AD = 33° DEATH and Age of 33 =
-Beginning of Death Cycle: September 11, -3 BC = 33° BIRTH =

As it has been noted, based on the Research of John Charles Webb, a Hexagram Planetary Alignment, Astronomically occurred at the Beginning and End of Jesus Christ’s Lifespan. These 2 unique Planetary Alignments appear to ‘Bracket’ the Lifespan of Jesus Christ. The 1st such Configuration occurred in March 2, -5 BC, as a possible Prophetic Countdown to the Purported Date of Christ’s Birth in September 11, -3 BC. The 2nd Hexagram Planetary Alignment, occurred during the Time of the Baptism of Christ, just before a Passover and just before His 30th birthday.

Some Observations
This Time was the Initiation, in preparation for the 3.5 Year long Public Ministry of Jesus as Messiah that led to the cross of Calvary. It is also rather interesting that the 2 ‘Bookend’ Star of David Planetary Alignments also are related to John the Baptist. He was the Forerunner to Christ’s Birth and to Jesus’ Public Ministry. John was also to die before Jesus. As to the Baptism Requirement of Jesus? John the Baptist was calling National Israel to Repentance.

A Baptism signified that a Sinner Humbled him or herself to the Point of Repentance, as in to Turn or Change Paths, or one’s Mind. It was to Reestablish a Right Standing with YHVH. And it was a Public Commitment. The Bible is very clear, that Jesus Christ, as GOD the Son, in the flesh was Sinless and did not have a Sin Nature. Thus Jesus, as a Human did not need to be Baptized, ‘For the remission of Sin’. The only reason He did was that as the Last Adam, Jesus Identified with the Sin of Adam and Eve.

Jesus took their Place, by Proxy as one in Association and Reconciliation to thereafter commit His Life to the Ministry of Reconciliation. And not only of National Israel but the entire World. This Willing Sacrifice and Substitution was to be Consummated at the ‘Altar of Sacrifice’ on the Cross of Calvary. Additionally the Bible states that Jesus is the only Sinless One, not Marry nor Mohammed can claim this. The following are some Astronomical Observations.

1. The Number of Partial Solar Eclipses from September 11 -3 BC to 32 AD = 33. This corresponds to the Age Christ was, 33.5 or on His 33rd Year at the Time of the Crucifixion based on the Year Counts since the Purported Birth Date.

2. The 32 Partial Solar Eclipses are marked by 10 Clusters separated by a factor of approximately 7 Years each, i.e. 10 x 7 = 70 Coefficient.

3. There are a total of 18 Total Solar Eclipses from September 11 -3 BC to 32 AD = a (6-6-6) Pattern.

4. If a Phi Ratio Spiral Pattern is Superimposed on the Lifespan Timeline of Jesus Christ’s Life from September 11 -3 BC to 32 AD, a Direct Correspondence to the Age of 12 occurs that is the Bar Mitzvah or Age of Accountability. This is possibly the Time in which Jesus was giving a Dissertation to the Elders of Israel in the Temple.

5. From the Age of 12 to the Time of the Baptism of Jesus is exactly 16 years. (8+8).

As noted, the Tetrad Blood Moons started on Passover in 2014. It occurred on the 14th of April with the start of the 2014-15 Tetrad. It occurred in the Midnight Hour as it did also in 32 AD. Perhaps this Time Period of exactly 1982 Years is signaling a near Completion of a ‘Greater Sacrifice’ Typology related to the End of the Church Age and Rapture of the Bride of Christ to occur fairly soon. One could Surmise a 10 Year Countdown, perhaps. This Assertion would then have its Prophetic Connection to the 10 Plagues of Egypt, for example.

Total Lunar Eclipse of the Crucifixion
The following is the specifics of the Blood Moon Eclipse of when this study purports the Crucifixion of Christ occurred. Based on the NASA’s Data, this total Blood Moon occurred near Midnight, Local Time, over Jerusalem on April 14, 32 AD. Astonishingly, as noted, April 14 was the same Day and Time that the last Tetrad of Blood Moons start with and were tied to the Tetrads of 1949-50- and 1967-68.

YEAR:             32 AD
DATE:             April 14 

ZENITH:          11:56:36 
LUNA NUM:    -24338 
SAROS:          61  
TYPE:             T+ 
QSE:               pp  
GAMMA:         0.0997 
PEN MAG:      2.6803 
UM MAG:        1.6697 

The Lunar Eclipse was not seen from Israel until 9 Hours later as it broke the Jerusalem Horizon. It was in the midst of Libra the Scales or 'Altar'. Perhaps this too was a Prophetic Omen of how National Israel missed the Biblical Significance of such a Judgment taken and a Sacrifice made by their long-awaited Messiah, Jesus of Nazareth. In terms of Eclipses, one sure fact is that Christ did Die on a Passover. The Bible states that it was at Mid-Day during the Crucifixion, that the Sky was totally Darkened.

This cannot be explained by a mere Solar Eclipse or Lunar Eclipse. It either had to be an Eclipse of a different Type altogether with some other Heavenly Body or a Supernatural Phenomenon of the Creator, or both. One has to also consider the Spiritual Dynamic of the event as the Dark Forces of Lucifer gathered to Witness the Spectacle of GOD the Son Dying on a Cross. As the Gospels declare, Lucifer and his Minions presumed that this was the Demise and End of the Creator’s Redemptive Plan for Rescuing Humanity in Jesus. If Lucifer would have known that. The Cross sealed his Eternal Fate, at the hands of the Seed of the Woman, as Promised. The Scriptures declare that Lucifer would not have allowed Christ to have been Crucified.

This shows a glimpse into the Spiritual Dimension of Eternity and the Council of GOD in that Lucifer for all this supposed Wisdom and Beauty cannot Out-Fox the Creator. He has Limited Understanding of YHVH’s Plans and Implementation; such is the case with the Rapture’s Timing and Evacuation Schedule from Earth of the Bride of Christ. So, Passover always starts with a Full Moon, meaning no Solar Eclipses could possibly have occurred at this same time of the Crucifixion at Mid-Day. There was a Partial Solar Eclipse on Apr 28, 32 AD. But the only Total Solar Eclipse occurred on March 19, 33 AD at 1:40pm lasting 4 minutes, according to NASA.

Blood Moon Passover
As to a possible Date on April 14, AD 32, a Wednesday? All the Modern Say Calculators have it as a Monday. One disagrees based on the Blood Moon and it being 14 Days from Nisan 1. One uses the Spring Equinox to Find the Start Time. etc.
As that Night fell once the Crucifixion had concluded, the lunar eclipse started to occur, as if to ’Punctuate’ this Time during the Midnight Hour in the Constellation of Libra, the Altar of Sacrifice. The Midnight Blood Moon perhaps coincided with the Destroying Angel of the Night of the Exodus in Egypt.

According to the Gospel Accounts, Passover Celebration Meal was Commemorated early by Christ and His Disciples. It occurred on the Eve of Jesus’ Betrayal by Judas and then the 7 Subsequent Mock Trials. The Feast was the 'Bridal Contract' and has become known as the LORD’s Supper. And as noted, the Mid-Week Passover had a Preparation Day that is also considered a High Holy Day and is treated as a Sabbath. It is to be completed still within the Kingdom of Glory someday. This has a Connotation of how this very ‘Picture’ occurred during the 1st Passover in Egypt. How so?

YHVH took Possession for Himself an entire Nation, a Bridal Contract made Good at Mount Sinai, of sorts. He Redeemed Israel by the Blood of a Lamb and at the cost of the First-Born of Egypt. At the LORD’s Supper, the Meal was concluded with a Hymn around Midnight, as they headed for a Night of Prayer in the Garden of Gethsemane. It would be exactly 24 Hours when all Darkness would befall on Calvary as Jesus Hung on the Cross. It would be near that Midnight that the Blood Moon would appear that very Night.

Thus, technically Jesus Died on a Sabbath and Rose on a Sabbath; i.e., the LORD of the Sabbath. The Bodies of anyone Crucified on a Tree had to be taken down, so as to not Defile the Passover. Thus every Victim had to be Dead and buried before Sunset that began the High Day Sabbath that Sundown as Israel observed their Passover Seder. At this point, Jesus becomes the literal Fulfillment of the Afikomen; Scourged but not Broken and Hidden in the Bowl of the Earth to await the Sign of Jonah that He gave to the Elders of Israel. At around 3pm or the 9th Hour Christ ‘Gave up the Spirit’. He Himself determined the Time of His death; it was not taken from Him.

Jesus Died physically on the Cross at Calvary just outside the Jerusalem, the same Time the Passover Lambs at the Temple were being Offered at another Altar of Sacrifice. It was not a ‘Spiritual Death’ nor a Façade. Thus there is a 3-Fold Typology of the Altar of Sacrifices that occurred that very day.

1) Astronomically with the Blood Moon square in the middle of the Altar of Libra.
2) Pictorially with the Sacrifices of the Lambs at the Brazen Altar of the Temple.
3) Physically with the Body of Christ on the Altar of the Cross of Calvary.

Astronomical Signatures
If one examines what the Morning Sky looked like rising over Jerusalem, looking west from the Temple Mount after the Passover Blood Moon of April 14, 32 AD around midnight, the Constellation configurations echo the depiction of what transpired on the Cross of Calvary. Cygnus the Swan was prominent as it was setting over the Temple. According to the work of E.W. Bullinger, it signifies the Graceful Swan on a ‘Cross’ as if Crucified.

At the Foot of the ‘Cross’ of Cygnus is Vulpecula the Victim that is Pierced through by an Arrow Sagitta as the Lyre of Praise is offered up by the Star Vega. This Star is one of the Brightest Stars in the whole Universe. The Victim is poured-out like Water, depicted in Aquarius to the South. To the North, Hercules’ Foot is set to crush the Head of Draco. The Mission of Jesus Christ was to vanquish the Work of Lucifer.

Delphinus and Aquila represent a coming Resurrection on the 3rd Day as the Sign of Jonah was only given by the Messiah to the Elders of Israel. This was the ‘Picture’ and perhaps the Giant Astronomical ‘Billboard’ that YHVH was announcing to Israel. The Sign was that the very Storyline of this Portion of the Mazzaroth was Fulfilled. And it was Accented by the Blood Moon Eclipse to conclude that Passover of April 14, 32 AD.

And this, to suggest that perhaps, it was the very Day of the actual Crucifixion of Jesus Christ. Nonetheless, the Timelines of the Passion Week in this study presents an Alternative View of the Timing of the Historical Sequence, based on the Astronomical lifespan from Jesus Christ’s Birth to His Dead. The Traditional Understanding of when Jesus was Born and Died has contributed to a lot of Misunderstanding.

Thus, the Timelines presented in this study have solely been based on Astronomical Patterns pegged to Solar and Lunar Eclipses Pattern, etc. There is the Star of David Planetary Alignments, as discussed of how the Birth and Death of Christ was Astronomically Marked by 2 Star of David Alignments as ‘Bookends to’ Christ’s Lifespan. Then there was the Star of Bethlehem, etc. The following is the list of the 10 Brightest Stars in the known Universe by rank.

Sirius, also known as the Dog Star, its Name comes from the Greek word for Scorching. Distance: 8.6 LY (Light Years). Constellation: Canis Major.

Named either for an Ancient City in northern Egypt or the Helmsman for Menelaus. Distance: 74 LY. Constellation: Argo.

Rigel Kentaurus, also known as Alpha Centauri, Its name literally means Foot of the Centaur. Distance: 4.3 LY. Constellation: Centaurus.

Arcturus is the Brightest Star in one of the Oldest Constellations in the Night Sky. Distance: 34 LY. Constellation: Bootes.

Its Name comes from the Spanish, meaning a ‘Bright Light’ or a Meadow by the Coast. In Arabic, it is the Name for the Swooping Eagle. Distance: 25 LY. Constellation: Lyre.

Capella's name is from the Latin for Little She-Goat. Capella is a Yellow Giant Star. Distance: 41 LY. Constellation: Auriga.

Rigel's name is from the Arabic for Foot, indicating its place in the Constellation Motif. Distance: 1400 LY. Constellation: Orion.

It is considered the ‘Little Dog Star’ of Sirius. Distance: 11.4 LY. Constellation: Canis Minor.

It is a Bluish-White, White Supergiant Star that is about 69 light years from Earth. Distance: 69 LY. Constellation: Eridanus.

It is a red supergiant about 13,000 times brighter than our sun and over 1000 times larger. Distance: ~1400 LY. Constellation: Orion.

Thus, if one starts with the Spring Equinox in 32 AD, the Passover Week Timeline suggests that the Crucifixion of Jesus was on a Wednesday, making the Resurrection on the weekly Sabbath Afternoon. This would make the Friday Crucifixion impossible as the Resurrection would coincide with a Monday Afternoon. The Lunar Eclipse of April 14, 32 AD might Suggest and would Explain the actual Timing of the Crucifixion. The actual Year, Month and Day of Christ’s Birth, Death during Passion Week is in Scholarly Dispute and will be, much like the Rapture. But this study has been, but 1 Attempt at providing further Evidence to suggest that April 14, 32 AD was in fact the actual Crucifixion Date. And with that, perhaps the actual Year, Month and Day of Rapture might be Prophetically Discerned.
