Solar Eclipse part 2

Solar Eclipse – further thoughts

The sun was turned off the day Jesus was crucified. For three hours. Much longer than yesterday’s solar eclipse.

When he died, although the sun shone again there was a darkness remaining in the world until Resurrection Sunday for the simple reason that the Light had gone out of the world. Jesus, the Light of the world, was no longer here. Neither was the Holy Spirit yet. And so the darkness over that Easter weekend must have been weird, thick, palpable.

Now that was a total eclipse of the Son. Must have been terrible to live through, especially for his mother, his family, his followers and friends. Terrible.
