Passover 2015 and the blood moon tetrad

HAPPY PASSOVER TO ALL THOSE CELEBRATING. The festival begins tonight at sundown. See last year's Passover post for the relevant biblical texts.

This is the third of four "blood moons" coinciding with a major Jewish holiday in the space of two years: one tomorrow (Saturday), and one last year on Passover and then one on the immediately following Sukkot, as well as one coming on this year's Sukkot. For reasons explained in the last post, this doesn't really add up to a much of a cosmic synchronicity.

Also, a small coincidence, but again not adding up to a cosmic synchronicity (because this happens pretty often) today is Good Friday. Best wishes to all those observing it. You can read the Gospel accounts of the Passion of Jesus in Matthew 26-27; Mark 14-15; Luke 22-23; and John 18-19. Note also Paul's account of the Last Supper in 1 Corinthians 11:23-26.
