Here’s What Different Religions Have To Say About The Solar Eclipse

Truly interesting stuff.
The Ancients

Solar eclipses were a thing of terror for the ancient world. Day plunged into night. The sun, which some cultures revered as a god, disappeared; and the natural order, as humanity knew it, was totally subverted.

udaism

Jews traditionally interpreted solar eclipses to be the result of human sin angering God, who would then hide the sun as a warning to his people, according to the Babylonian Talmud. Ancient Hebrews knew that eclipses could be predicted, but still believed they were a sign.

“When the luminaries are stricken, it is an ill omen for the world. To what can we compare this? To a king of flesh and blood who prepared a feast for his servants and set a lantern to illuminate the hall. But then he became angry with them and said to his servant: ‘Take the lantern from before them and seat them in darkness,'” – Talmud, Sukkah 29a

Christianity

Modern Christian interpretations of solar eclipses vary almost as widely as the denominations of the Christian faith.

One view, according to Religion News Service (RNS), is that while the heavens operate according to the design of God, who created them, solar eclipses do not foretell the end of the world or any lesser calamity.

“The term ‘fake news’ is very in vogue and overused these days. The end times stuff is kind of like ‘fake religion,'” Roman Catholic Rev. James Kurzynski told RNS. “It’s just the kind of stuff that’s spun in a way to try to get Christians scared when there’s nothing to fear.”

Gary Ray, writer for the Charismatic Christian publication Unsealed, presented a view from the other end of the spectrum of Christian interpretations of eclipses. Ray said he and those who follow a similar interpretation of the Christian faith do not believe the eclipse will announce the end of the world, but that it does communicate a warning about the latter days of history as we know it.

“We simply believe that God may be communicating a message through this eclipse about the general nearness of the rapture of the Church and Christ’s return,” Gary’s explanation reads. “In other words, we believe that these prophetic events will occur soon, but we don’t know the day or hour on which they will occur.”

Gary noted the timing of this eclipse presented certain numerical signs significant in a Christian context. The event will occur 33 days before another celestial event during which the constellation Virgo will be “clothed” in the sun, moon will be at her feet, and Mercury, Venus, and Jupiter will join the constellation Leo to “crown” Virgo with 12 celestial bodies. Some believe that this alignment is the sign referenced in chapter 12 of the book of Revelation, verses one through five, which appears to announce the second coming of Christ.

There's definitely some major wisdom hidden in religious texts and history.
