Eli Eli Lema Sabacthani...my God My God, Why Have You Abandoned Me?
Jesus in the Bible when about to be killed by his people, he made a loud cry:
About three in the afternoon Jesus cried out in a loud voice, “Eli, Eli, lema sabachthani?” (which means “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”).
And at three in the afternoon Jesus cried out in a loud voice, “Eloi, Eloi, lema sabachthani?” (which means “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”).
Forsaken means to abandon! Why would God abandon Jesus? Are they not one again (John 10:30 I and the Father are one)?
Moreover the writer of Psalm has this to say:
For the LORD will not forsake his people; he will not abandon his heritage.
For the LORD loves justice and will not forsake His saints. They are preserved forever, but the offspring of the wicked will be cut off.
Those who know Your name trust in You, for You, O LORD, have not forsaken those who seek You.
1 Samuel 12:22
For the LORD will not forsake his people for his great name's sake: because it hath pleased the LORD to make you his people.
God did not reject (FORSAKE) His people, whom He foreknew. Do you not know what the Scripture says about Elijah, how he appealed to God against Israel:
So why did Jesus claim God Forsake/Abandon him when God will never forsake His saints/people?
