Thick Darkness

Luke 23:44-46 and Matthew 27:45. 14th Nisan from 12noon to 3pm. The Roman Centurion watched Jesus die, as a representative of the Roman Empire. There were many other people watching, including some of Jesus’ followers. We know John was there because Jesus spoke to him, asking him to look after Mary His mother.There was darkness for three hours as Jesus hung on the cross.

Two other places you will find darkness mentioned are:
Thick darkness that could be felt on Egypt for three days, but in the land of Goshen, where the Israelites lived, there was light. Ra, the sun god of the Egypt, was judged.
Revelation 6:12-17, the sixth seal.

Background Reading: Thick Darkness

44 It was already about noon, and the whole land became dark until three in the afternoon 45 because the sun had stopped shining, and the curtain in the sanctuary was torn in two. 46 Then Jesus cried out with a loud voice and said, “Father, into your hands I entrust my spirit.” After he said this, he breathed his last.
Luke 23:44-46
