The four lunar tetrads in 2014 and 2015 are set to appear during the Jewish feast days of Passover and the Feast of the Tabernacles, or Sukkot.

John Hagee claims that it is rare for this lunar tetrad to occur on Jewish holy days. However, since the time of Christ, there have been eight tetrads that have occurred on Jewish Passover and the Festival of Tabernacles.

The Hebrew calendar is lunar, and the Festival of Tabernacles is exactly six lunar months after the Festival of Passover, so in a lunar tetrad that begins on the Passover the second, third, and fourth lunar eclipses will always fall on the days of the Jewish feasts. Here are the dates of the eight lunar tetrads since the time of Christ, which including a total solar eclipse at his crucifixion:

1. 32 – 33 AD

2.   162-163

3.   795-796

4.  842-843

5 . AD 860-861

6. AD 1493-1494

7. AD 1949-1950

8. AD 1967-1968

9. AD 2014-2015
