When was Jesus crucified ?
I began to wonder many, many years ago if the eclipse at the hour of his death would pin-point the day, and hour.
It was not easy at first and I did not get my answer but I had better luck today.
It is also fascinating how he was born and died on the same day of the month; The 3rd day, when he was 33 in the year 33 AD. Recognizing that 3 is a special number relating to Jehovah and the trinity. as 7 is to man and 6 to Satan...
Bellow are the links that fascinated me in my moment of discovery, and a brief clipping from them SPECIALLY from the great Isaac Newton in the last section of this page.
NASA's website indicates a Red Blood Moon Lunar Eclipse occurred on the 3rd of April in the year 33 AD.
The Bible states that after Jesus Christ was crucified on the Jewish Passover a Red Blood Moon Lunar Eclipse was visible to all the inhabitants of the world.
(Acts 2: 14-22)
On the Day of Pentecost, the Apostle Peter reminded the people
of Jerusalem that both solar, and lunar eclipse where visible on April 3rd,
14 But Peter, standing up with the eleven, raised his voice and said to them, “Men of Judea and all who dwell in Jerusalem, let this be known to you, and heed my words.
16 this is what was spoken by the prophet Joel:
20 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the coming of the great and awesome day of the LORD.
21 And it shall come to pass that whoever calls on the name of the LORD Shall be saved.
22 “Men of Israel, hear these words: Jesus of Nazareth, a Man attested by God to you by miracles, wonders, and signs which God did through Him in your midst, as you yourselves also know.

Additional notes to follow;
For centuries, astronomers and scientists have used diverse
computational methods to estimate the date of crucifixion, Isaac
Newton being one of the first cases.

2] Newton's method relied on the relative visibility of the crescent of the new moon and he suggested the date as Friday, April 23, 34 AD/CE. ( he was wrong )
3] In 1991, John Pratt stated that Newton's method was sound, but included a minor error at the end. Pratt suggested the year 33 AD/CE as the answer. Using the completely different approach of a lunar eclipse model,
Humphreys and Waddington arrived at the conclusion that Friday, April 3, 33 AD/CE was the date of the crucifixion.
