Did Jesus commit blasphemy by claiming Himself as the Son of the God?

Answer 1Jesus calls himself God's son in Matthew 11:27; John 5:23 and John 5:26. When Peter calls him the son of God in Matthew 16:16, Jesus tells Peter that God revealed that to him.

But when Jesus calls himself God's son, he is not identifying himself as divine, he is identifying himself as a descendant of David, just as the scripture uses the term in Ps 29:1. The coronation hymn in Ps 2:7 declares that the king of Judah becomes God's son on the day he is annointed by the High Priest.

You see a perfect example of this when God commanded Zechariah (Zechariah 6:11-13) to annoint as king, Jesus, son of Josedech, who was the high priest. God calls him "branch" which is used to mean descendent of Jesse (David's father) in several places in scripture. -- see Isaiah 11:1; Jeremiah 23:5-6; Isaiah 4:2, etc.

Of course a Levite and descendent of Aaron is not literally a descendent of Jesse, but by the time of Zechariah, the term "branch" has become synonymous with "king", which is also spoken of as "son of God". Jesus is the second part of the Trinitarian God head. All three "persons" are co-eternal, co-powerful and co-equal.

Back in those days, it was considered blasphemy, though, he was not commiting blasphemy.

Answer

There is one small passage in scripture which testifies that Christ (Jesus) knew exactelly who He was. Remember when his parents missed him when they were journying home. That had to return to where they were last at to try and find him.

Eventually they found him with the priests and clergy discussing the gospel with them. His mother perhaps said to him somewhat curtly. "We have been looking for you for ages and we were worried". Do you remember what he said, he said words to this affect " You should not have worried mother, for I was only doing what my Father in Heaven wanted me to do". Jesus, from an early age, knew exactly who his real father was.

So basically it was not blasphemy because it was the truth.

--

Another Answer:

The priests are descendants of Levi, Israel's son and are called Levites.

The Gospel is loaded with examples of Jesus knowing who He is. When His parents missed Him in Luke 2 He said, "Why did you seek Me? Did you not know that I must be about My Father's business?"

He referred to Himself as the Son of Man 35 times. A term the Old Testament often used for God.

He referred to His relationship with the Father 33 times.

He Prayed to His Father in Heaven 4 times, specifically John 17.

He referred to Himself as the Son of God 5 times, and was referred to as the Son of God 41 times, once in Daniel.

He addresses God as "My Father" 39 times.

He certainly does identify himself as divine.

Another View:

Certainly not blasphemy though that was the charge the religious leaders placed against HIm. Here is an example from the Gospel of John. The setting is the 7th and last day of the Feast of Tabernacles - a ritual done during this Feast is the 'water pouring ceremony' at the temple altar that now reaches its height. Jesus proclaimed: "If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water" (John 7:37-38). Jesus is essentially proclaiming Himself to be the Messiah and Lord God of Israel, the source of living waters of God's Holy Spirit.

Surely, the peoply would of been amazed at the words from Jesus but just as surely, others would have been offended and these wanted to kill Him (verse 44).

So the very next day - the sacred 8th day of the Feast following the Feast of Tabernacles - Jesus is again teaching in the temple complex. In this holy setting on this Holy Day, the enemies of Jesus cast their 'foolproof' plot to trap and try to discredit Him - worthy of being condemned by the multitude. It's the well known story of the scribes and Pharisees throwing a woman before Him who was caught in adultery - and the crowd gathers to see His response.

These religious leaders quote Moses as to her prescribed punishment - death by stoning. If Jesus agrees, the position of the religious leaders would be upheld thus contradicting His reputation for compassion and forgiveness. But if Jesus said no to punishing the woman, the religous leaders would charge Him with breaking or contradicting the Law. What a spot for a mere human to be in.

Jesus, to their amazement, bends down and starts to write in the ground with His finger (John 8:6) paying them no mind - or so it seems. Was this something private for the Son of God to ponder before He spoke or could it relate to Jeremiah 17:13: "Those who depart from the Lord, 'the fountain of living waters (which Jesus declared Himself to be the day before),' shall be 'written in the earth.' This means being written in the sand - without permanence - while others strive to be 'written in heaven' (see Luke 10:20) and written in the 'book of life' in Revelation 13:8; 20:12, 15. These religious leaders surely would have gotten the meaning of the scriptural message being sent - even if they didn't see the writing itself. Blasphemy is what they thought but only the divine Son of God could be consistently perfect, judging these and all mankind at the end of the reign of man.

Additional Comment:

Nobody can say for sure that Jesus ever said he was the son of God because the scriptures where written at least 70 years after his death and by authors no one can identify. No one has ever identified who Mathew, Mark, Luke and John where. There is no historical evidence of their existence other than the scriptures that where part of hundreds of others the Church decided to include in what is now known as the Bible.

Answer 2Jesus (may God bless him) never claimed that he is son of God and what is written in some God holy books is not real God words but written by some human. Quran; Muslims God holy book; says (meaning English translation):

" O People of the Scripture, do not commit excess in your religion or say about Allah (God and same God worshiped in Christianity and Judaism) except the truth. The Messiah, Jesus, the son of Mary, was but a messenger of Allah and His word which He directed to Mary and a soul [created at a command] from Him. So believe in Allah and His messengers. And do not say, "Three"; desist - it is better for you. Indeed, Allah is but one God. Exalted is He above having a son. To Him belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth. And sufficient is Allah as Disposer of affairs" (4:171).

Answer-3

Al-Qur'an: Sura: Al-Maidah: Verses: 116, 117, 118

Translation:

"And when Almighty Allah will say, "O Jesus son of Maryam! Did you say to people that take me and my mother as your Lord besides Allah, he will say, 'You are free (from any kind of Partner), it does not suit me to say such (things to people) for which I have no right (to say). If I had said it, it would have been in Your Knowledge, You know even what is (hidden) in my heart, and I don't know what you know. You are the True Knower of the Hidden. 116. I didn't say to them (the people) except what You Commanded me to say that worship Allah Who is the Rabb (Lord-Provider) of you and me. And as long as I was among them I was aware of them, thus when you ascended me (to heavens) You remained aware of them. And You are witness to all things. 117. If You chastise them, they are Your slaves. And if You forgive them, no doubt You are the Supreme, the Wisest." 118

Allah Almighty is the Sole Creator, Sustainer, Provider and Ruler of the Universe. He has No Son, No Parents, No off-spring. He is Omnipotent, Omni-Present, All-Knowing, All-Seeing, All-Listening. HE and He alone deserves worship. All powers lie in His Hands. He alone is the Master of the Day of Judgment. He has No Partner, No Associate whatsoever. No one can understand Him completely. There is Nothing like Him. He is Most Merciful, Most Gracious, Most Forgiving..

How old is Jesus?

The theological answer is this:

  • Jesus was 33 1/2 years old when he was crucified
  • Jesus was born around 3 A.D. His birth was 2009 years ago though nobody knows the exact date. But Jesus is of the Trinity and is technically eternal. He has not always been man, but in the incarnation "became man" at birth.

The historical answer is somewhat different, however. Historians have not found enough objective information to definitively say how old Jesus was when died; however, it is perhaps safe to suggest that he was in his thirties at the time of his death. The only major primary source on the life of the Historical Jesus, ie: the "New" Testament, provides too many inaccuracies and inconsistencies to be considered a reliable source on his time and place of birth; also, as scholars have noted, Jesus left no writings, and the New Testament was compiled between 40 and 100 years after the events that it describes.

As we know, from extra-biblical sources, Pilate was the Prefect of Judea from 26- 36 CE. Within these ten years, on Passover Eve, Jesus must have died; however, it is down to guesswork (and belief) after that.

Taking all this into consideration, he is almost as old as your mom.

And then there is the accurate biblical answer

If you believe the biblical text, then you must be aware that Christ was observed by others prior to his time on earth in the flesh. Yes he was supposed to be about 33 years of age when he was crucified in the flesh after being born of the virgin Mary of the tribe of Levi. However there are other accounts of Christ in the Old Testament which go all the way back to the garden of eden and another in the book of John which takes Christ all the way back to the beginning of all time.

1) There is the account of Christ in the garden of eden in the book of Genesis as the tree of life (Genesis 2:9)

2) Christ is Melchisedec/Melchizedek (King of the Just) who met with Abraham, explained by the Apostle Paul and documented in Genesis and the book of Psalms: Hebrews 5:6-10, 6:20, 7:1-21, Genesis 14:18, Psalms 110:4

3) Christ was observed by Nebuchadnezzar in the fiery furnace, during the captivity of Babylon, He is referred to as the Son of God. Daniel 3:25

4) In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God, The same was in the beginning with God... And the Word was made flesh and dwelt among us and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father) full of grace and truth. John 1:1-2 and 14. Christ was since the beginning with our Father. How long ago was that? The answer to that time is not given however 2nd Peter chapter 3 identifies 3 earth eons or ages. One that passed hundreds prior to this one which we know is hundreds of thousands if not billions of years old.

These are biblical friendus to the question how old was Christ. In order to be accurate all accounts must be disclosed; not simply those which account for his flesh life. Many people stumble at the word because they do not understand both bodies as Paul identified in 1st Corinthians ch 15. There is a heavenly body and and earthly body. Further 2nd Peter ch 3 proclaims all three earth eons (ages), The 1st prior to this one which ended in a flood and an ice age, The 2nd which is this current age, and the last or 3rd which is often referred to as the eternity. In that same 2nd Peter ch 3, you will discover that a day with the Lord is a as 1000 years.

Histrocial biblical reference =

1) Christ's time on this earth in the flesh was about 33 years.

2) His existence prior to his flesh life can not be measured using mankind's current knowledge (its guessed that the earth is hundreds of billions of years old).

3) His existence after his flesh life has been about 2000 years (two days).

4) Documented in the book of Genesis chapter 1 are the first 7 days where our Father setup this earth age (the 2nd). Knowning from 2nd Peter Ch3 that a day with the Lord is 1000 years, the total of the first week was 7000 years or 7 days (one week).

5) Documented in the first chapter of Genesis are the first 5 days (5000 years) where all of the items needed for flesh man to exist were created.

6) Documented in the first chapter of Genesis was the creation of flesh man on the 6th day (6000 years after our Father began rejuvenating his earth for flesh mans existence)

7) Our Father rests on the 7th day (a period of 1000 of flesh mans years). The first week has ended with a day of rest and the second week begans.

8) The Second Week:

8a. Documented in the second chapter of Genesis is the forming of the man to till the soil (Adam or More specific in the Hebrew eth-ha-adam) on the 8th day (or the 1st day of the second week). Adam is directly traceable to the birth of Christ (Luke ch 3), as Mary is from the tribe of Levi (Adam, Noah, Shem, Terah, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Levi). Adam is mentioned in the Genealogy of Joseph (Matthew ch 1), Mary's husband. Christ is born in the flesh of Mary, a discendent of Adam (eth-ha-adam).

8b. From Adam to Christ are about 4000 years (4days) and from Christ until now are about 2000 years (2 days). We are near the end of 6000 years (6 days) and very close to the start of the day of rest (7th day).

8d. Christ will reign for a period of 1000 years prior to the end of this earth age (eon) (Revelation ch 20), and just after the 5 month reign of Anti-Christ (Satan as the fake Jesus). Christ's reign of 1000 years (one day) will conclude the second week (second set of 7days, each day being 1000 years). After Christ's 1000 year (one day) reign, Judgement occurs (Revelation 20). Each individual is then judged according to their works.

9) To summerize How old is Christ

9a. He was with our Father in the beginning (John 1:1-2,14)

9b. He was in the garden with Adam (Genesis 2:9) "Tree of Life"

9c. He walked with Abraham as Melchisedec (Genesis 14:18)

9d. He was observed in the fire by Nebuchadnezzar (Daniel 3:25)

9e. He was born in the flesh of the Virgin Mary of Levi (Luke 3)

9f. He was observed by many of the Disciples and Mary after his flesh death and during his resurection (Matthew 28, Mark 16, Luke 24, John 21)

9g. His soul continues even until today.

This is a study for the bible student durived from biblical text, Please do not erase this truth in order to profess a your own self will concerning Christ. There is a warning from Christ in the last chapter of the book of Revelation (22:19) for all those who do not allow the accurate information from biblical text to be presented, but instead choose to erase this text reference and present altered or inaccurate information.

Finding Christ By Following His Star

Here is another way to look at it. It is speculative, but based on hard evidence. I think it is true.

The magi saw "His star" and used it to know the birth of Christ. It had a very exact time of its appearing, as they told Herod. Astronomy tells us of an interesting series of conjunctions of Jupiter (the king planet as understood by eastern astrologers...the magi were astrologers from the east) with Regulus (the king star). That triple conjunction series began September of 3 BC. Nine months later, a very rare and very bright conjunction of Venus and Jupiter occurred. These are the two brightest "stars" in heaven (they are actually planets). This may be the Bethlehem star. It was brightest on June 17, 2 BC. I think the September conjunction marked His conception. Nine months later He was born. That star, which would have been seen as one bright point, would have been the brightest star the magi had ever seen, was His birthday. Several months later, after a long journey, the appeared in Jerusalem to worship Him. He was no longer in the manger (that was birthday), but in the house.

Luke says clearly that John the Baptist appeared in the 15th year of Tiberius Caesar. Tiberius began his rule on August 19, 14 AD. This means the year 29-30 AD John appeared, and Jesus was baptized by John, being about 30 years old. This would put His birth between 1 and 2 BC, which fits the star data. As mentioned already, Jesus ministered about 3 and 1/2 years. He was crucified on a Friday Passover during the reign of Pilate. The should place the date of His death to April 3, 33 AD, when Jesus was 33 years and 10 months old.

The prophecy of Daniel's 70 weeks also confirm this. The details show that Daniel prophesied the exact date of Christ's appearance in Jerusalem (Palm Sunday), to the VERY DAY! If you count the days of his prophecy carefully, which begin with the decree to rebuild Jerusalem (which would be the month of Nisan in the 20th year of Artaxerxes), and count 69 weeks (483 Jewish years of 360 days each=173, 880 days), you end up with March 30, 33 AD. This is five days before Passover, when Jesus entered Jerusalem on a donkey to the praise of His followers. He had to be inspected 5 days as the spotless lamb of God. Perfect timing!

One must realize who Jesus is to answer correctly. The Gospel of John 1:1-4 explains that before Jesus assumed the role of a man to become our Savior, He was the Eternal Word of God. Hence He always was and will be as He called Himself the 'alpha and omega' Greek letters of the first and last positions.

Jesus was born a human being in circa 5-4 BC. He died in circa 31 AD and was resurrected as the firstborn of many three days after His death. He is the first of the firstfruits of God and lives again in Heaven (see John 3:13) sitting at the right hand of the Father, now as His Son also. Jesus is both 100% Man and 100% God.

Jesus lived as a human being for "about 33 years", but Jesus is also God the Creator and the Lord of the Old Testament !

Col 1:16-18 ISV For by him all things in heaven and on earth were created, things visible and invisible, whether they are kings, lords, rulers, or powers. All things have been created through him and for him. (v.17) He himself existed before all things, and by him all things hold together. (v.18) He is also the head of the body, which is the church. He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, so that he himself might have first place in everything.

Jesus as God was never born but has always existed since eternity past, and will live eternally and never die.

He died when he was 33. He always was, is, and is to come. Spiritually, he has no age.
Please kindly note Jesus is ageless, as he was there with god before the foundation of the earth.

Bar Mitzvah

Did Jesus Christ have a Bar Mitzvah?

Answer 1

Jesus was Jewish past thirteen years of age, which must have meant he had one, but no-one can know for sure.

Answer 2

In Judaism, every Jewish boy is a bar mitzvah ("son of the commandment") at age 13. The modern bar mitzvah ceremony with a party, etc didn't come about until the mid-1900's. Historically, the Jewish boy would simply attend services and read from the Torah on their birthday. Based on the Christian Bible, Jesus had a Jewish mother and therefore would've been a bar mitzvah.

I suppose Jesus' Lessons with the priests in the Temple at Jerusalem, would have been the closest thing to a Bar Mitzvah ceremony.

Answer 3

Bar Mitzvah has two meanings: the coming into adulthood for every Jewish man and the celebration of that event through reading Torah and Haftarah before a Jewish congregation. Since Jesus was brought up in a Jewish household and considered himself Jewish, he certainly came into adulthood as a Jew. However, the celebration of the Bar Mitzvah is a product of the 13th century and therefore Jesus would not have done anything close to what people consider a Bar Mitzvah celebration today.

How old was Joseph husband of Mary mother of Jesus?

These were planed long before, so they were proberly close in age. Daddies always arranged them ahead of time.

The Bible only states that Mary was virgin when Jesus was born! Mary and Joseph were expected to and did fulfill their marriage views and had lots of children on their own. Since Jesus was the first born, only Jesus could become a higher ranking Jewish Rabbi! Joseph was a higher ranking Jewish Rabbi also! And was Jesus teacher here! Joseph also taught all of his sons what is translated as carpentry in the Bible. Since they were lacking in trees and buildings made with stone, they would have been more trained here.

The Bible even states that some of these younger brothers came and joined with Jesus.

Why is Jesus important today?

ANSWER: Jesus Christ is important today for the same reason He was important on the day He was resurrected. Jesus has given man a way to be reconciled back to God. It is very important to know that mankind is on the road to hell. Hell as in the Lake of Fire that we are told about in Revelation 20:14-15. Jesus has told us in Matthew 7:13-14, "Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it." It is more evident every passing day that there will be few indeed who will enter heaven and eternal life. Mankind is indeed by nature wicked. The only way to God is through Jesus Christ, but false teachers have perverted God's message so badly that everyone thinks they are going to heaven. Beware! Jesus Christ is the only Savior of mankind. You who think you know the Bible and show your spiritually and do not present the Word of God in truth you will pay the price. Jesus Christ and the Bible are called "old', but they are not antiquated!! Jesus Christ is alive and as true today as He was 2000 years ago. He will return to judge mankind Soon! Are you ready?

What does the Bible say about comparing ourselves to Jesus?

It says that it's a good idea...

(1 Peter 2:21) ". . To this you were called, because Christ suffered for you, leaving you an example, that you should follow in his steps". (TNIV)

(Matthew 16:24)" Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me."(KJV)

In order to do this, we'd have to be constantly checking to be sure we WERE doing what Christ did.

(John 13:15) "For I have given you an example, that ye should do as I have done to you."(KJV)

Did Judas feel sorry for betraying Jesus?

Matthew 27:5 says that Judas threw down the silver in the Temple and went and hanged himself. The priests took the blood money and bought the potter's field, which they called the field of blood, because it was blood money. In this story, the fact that he returned the money and committed suicide means that Judas felt sorry for what he had done. Matthew 27:3-5: 'Then Judas, His betrayer, seeing that He had been condemned, was remorseful and brought back the thirty pieces of silver to the chief priests and elders, saying, "I have sinned by betraying innocent blood." And they said, "What is that to us? You see to it!" Then he threw down the pieces of silver in the temple and departed, and went and hanged himself.'

Acts 1:18 says that Judas bought a field with the reward of iniquity, and fell headlong, bursting asunder and all his bowels gushed out. Because of this, the field was called the field of blood. In this story, the fact that he kept the money and bought land means that he must have felt very happy with what he had done, even though he subsequently had a fatal fall, depriving him of the rewards of his infamy.

Another AnswerIt would appear from the King James translation that Judas repented:-

Matthew 27:3 [KING JAMES]

Matt 27 (v.3) Then Judas, which had betrayed him, when he saw that he was condemned, repented himself, and brought again the thirty pieces of silver to the chief priests and elders,

However, Judas did not actually repent:-

Commentator David Guzik says on Matthew 26:74-75:-

<http://wiki.friendus.com/%200;%20margin:%200;%20margin-bottom:%2010px;%20background-image:%20url(http://en.site1.answcdn.com/templates/icons/qr.gif);%20background-position:%20bottom%20right;%20background-repeat:%20no-repeat;%20height:%2022px">d. We see a significant contrast between Judas (showing apostasy) and Peter (showing backsliding).

i. Apostasy is giving up the truth, as Judas did. Judas was sorry about his sin, but it was not a sorrow leading to repentance.

ii. Backsliding is a decline from a spiritual experience once enjoyed. Peter slipped, but he will not fall; his bitter weeping will lead to repentance and [his later] restoration.

Other translations make it clear that Judas did notactually repent :-

Other versions render "Repent" here in Matthew 27:3 in the KJ as instead:

-"changed his mind" (ESV)

-"regretted what had happened" (GW)

-"regretted what he had done"(NET)

-"felt remorse"(NASB)

-"was remorseful"(NKJV)

Basically, Judas felt sorry/regretful/remorseful etc but not repentant.

AnswerI do not think that the word sorry is strong enough for how Judas felt. Remorse, anguish or betrayal might be better suited. Few people commit suicide because they felt sorry. Being overcome with grief at having betrayed Christ who he knew to be the son of God was more than he could bare. He had to forfeit his own life to atone for his sin.

Should Christians not worship any other gods but Jesus because He is the only God?

Jesus himself, directed attention and worship only to his Father. For example, when prodded to do an act of worship to the Devil, Jesus said: “It is Jehovah your God you must worship, and it is to him alone you must render sacred service.” (Matthew 4:10) Later Jesus instructed his disciples: “Do not call anyone your father on earth, for one is your Father, the heavenly One.”—Matthew 23:9.

Under God’s direction, and as a result of the ransom sacrifice of Jesus, he will rid the world of all sadness, pain, and sorrow for the benefit of those who submit to his righteous rule. So Jesus is worthy of our honor, respect, and obedience, however the Bible clearly indicates, however, that our worship—in the sense of religious reverence and devotion—must be addressed solely to God. Moses described him as “a God exacting exclusive devotion.” And the Bible exhorts us to “worship the One who made the heaven and the earth and sea and fountains of waters.”—Deuteronomy 4:24; Revelation 14:7. Jesus certainly occupies a pivotal role in true worship, one worthy of honor and respect. (2 Corinthians 1:20, 21; 1 Timothy 2:5) He is the only way through which we are able to approach God. (John 14:6) Accordingly, true Christians do well to direct their worship only to Jehovah God, the Almighty.

Does Eheyeh mean 'I am' or 'ani' in Hebrew?

No.

Ani (אֲנִי) is the Hebrew first person singular nominative (I) pronoun. While Hebrew has a verb to be, lihiyot (להיות) it's not used in the present tense. To say, "I am at home." in Hebrew, you say, "I in house." No present tense verb is used... and that's good Hebrew.

Probably about nine. The writers of the gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke (who is also said to have written Acts) and John (who is also said to have written three letters and Revelation). 13 letters are ascribed to Paul, two to Peter, one each to James and Jude, and one anonymous.

All of these are conjectural.

What three ways did the devil tempts Jesus?

1. Matthew 4:3 The tempter came to him and said, "If you are the Son of God, tell these stones to become bread."

2. Matthew 4:6 "If you are the Son of God," he said, "throw yourself down. For it is written: " 'He will command his angels concerning you, and they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone."

3. Matthew 4:9 "All this I will give you," he said, "if you will bow down and worship me."

The temptations of Christ were not restricted to the temptation in the wilderness as outlined in Matt. 4, Luke 4.

The Bible declares that He was tempted "...in all points..." as we are, indicating that He underwent every temptation that is common unto man -- of which were temptations from people as well as the demonic emissaries of Satan.

Additional Answer:

Yahushua was a Hebrew, and kept all of the commandments of YHWH as Moses wrote them down.

Yahushua kept the sabbath, the festivals of YHWH, wore 4 tassels on the corners of his clothing, ate clean foods, and did everything else found in the books of the law, also known as the "Torah."

Yahushua did NOT keep the traditions of the elders, also known as the Mishna or the Talmud. Things like wearing a Yarmikule, certain washings before eating, and not pronouncing the name of the father (YaHuWaH) are part of these traditions, but are not found in the Torah. Yahushua did not keep these traditions, and often railed against those who taught them on par with the teachings of YHWH.

Another Comment:

Jesus Christ instituted true Christianity, a way of life based on love. In it, all thoughts and actions are to harmonize with God's will, for the purpose of bringing honor and glory to his name.

Another Answer:

Quite literally, Judaism. Christ was born a Jew,ethnically and religiously.

Meaning of 4th last word of Jesus?

"Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? that is to say, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?" (Matthew 27:46). In Hebrew, therefore a direct quotation of Psalm 22 v1. Perhaps Jesus is telling us, "Read Psalm 22. It prophesies (in vv 7, 8, 16, 18) everything that is happening today. But it also affirms "The kingdom is the Lord's; and He is the governor among the nations" (v 28) So God is still in control. Just trust Him, and wait for the Resurrection."
