Luke 24:21 "three days have passed"

True, but the ancients were very familiar with solar eclipses, right? The Gospels only mention that a darkness was over the land for 3 hours. We have no indication if that was truly an eclipse by the moon (which would have been in the wrong phase, anyway.)

In any case, I'm not attached emotionally to this theory - I just found it really original, as I don't think any other patristic source (in any tradition) mentions it.
