I’m borrowing an idea that Debs uses often in her blog, Stirred Not Shaken, and posting a question here this time. When Jesus said on the cross:
(Mat 27:46) “Eli, Eli, lema sabachthani?” which means “My God, My God, why have You abandoned Me?”,
are we to assume that the Father had indeed forsaken Him? In my previous post, I recorded a conversation having to do with dry spells. As in all other things, Jesus was tempted by this, just as we are. Jesus on the cross, in agony of body, in agony of soul, in agony of spirit, sensing perhaps for the first time ever a disconnect from God the Father, is the ultimate example of an excruciating dry spell.
So, was He truly forsaken, or was He, as we so often find ourselves, simply unable to sense the uninterrupted presence of His Father? What do you think, and why?
