Matthew 27;46. To About three in the afternoon Jesus cried out with a loud voice, “Elí, Elí, lemá[ sabachtháni?” that is, “My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?”/
In Mark 15:34 And at three Jesus cried out with a loud voice, “Eloi, Eloi, lemá sabachtháni?” which is translated, “My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?”
In Matthew 27:45 From noon until three in the afternoon darkness came over the whole land.
In Mark 15:33 When it was noon, darkness came over the whole land until three in the afternoon.
When Jesus was hanging on the cross when it was noon, darkness came over the whole land until three in the afternoon. This darkness was a supernatural event since darkness came over the whole land. It was foretold by the prophet in the Old Testament For example, in Isaiah 5:30,13;10 it states,When one looks at the land, there will be darkness and distress; light will be obscured by clouds in Amos 8:9,“I will make the sun go down at noon and darken the earth in broad daylight.Why did God allow darkness to occur. In the Bible darkness means judgement from and God. For example when darkness fell over the Eghypt for 3 days just before the death of oldest son throughout the land. Nonetheless, darkness at the crucifixion was God judgment on sin. Where all of mankind sin fell upon Jesus, and God Father view Jesus as the worst sinner in world. John Baptist started, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world” John 1:29 Jesus was the paschal lamb.
In Mark 15:34 Jesus cried out with a loud voice, “Eloi, Eloi, lemá sabachtháni?” which is translated, “My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?
Oxford Bible Church wrote,”What could be so much more terrible that made him scream? In a moment your sins, my sins and the sins of the whole world were put on him and God the Father and God the Holy-Spirit turned their backs on him. He had lived a perfect holy life, hating sin-but now the sin of the world was placed on him. Jesus took our place and bore our sins. He suffered the punishment that we deserved and which justice demanded. He died as a Sin-Offering and paid the penalty for our sin. The wrath and judgement of God that we deserved now fell upon him. (Isa 53:6). In the 3 hours of DARKNESS he suffered the equivalent of eternal hell. He had lived in the fellowship and Presence of God his whole life, even from eternity, but now for the first time he was in darkness, separated from God’s presence and blessing (spiritual death)
Now he drank fully the cup of God’s Wrath upon sin. (John 18:11) This is the horror that caused him to scream the words:
My God, my God, why have you forsaken me? (Ps 22:1)”
Why did it seem like God turned His back on Jesus?
Because: Thou are HOLY Since God is holy He can have nothing to do with sin. At that moment: He who knew no sin was made SIN for us that we might become the righteousness of God in Him (2Cor 5:21).
So now the full force of God’s righteous and holy anger fell on Jesus. We cannot imagine the horror he had to suffer on the account of our sin.
These words were spoken from the cross to God to reveal that flowing out from the cross GODWARD, was a propitiation, satisfying God’s Justice and appeasing His anger upon sin Jesus bore the sin of the whole world so that forgiveness and salvation is available to all through Christ.
In Psalm 22;1 is the fulfillment of Matthew 27;46 and Mark 15:34 in both its agony and its victory. Jesus knew great pain and suffering (both physical and emotional) in His life, but had never known separation from His Father; now He does. There was a significant sense in which Jesus rightly felt forsaken by God the Father at this moment. Why? Because God made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him 2 Corinthians 5:21.
In Mark 15:34 And at three, Jesus cried out with a loud voice, “Eloi, Eloi, lemá sabachtháni?” which is translated, “My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?
Note at three o’clock or the 9th hour Jesus cried out my God My God have for shaken. Why at 3 o’clock in Exodus 12:6 You are to keep male lamb until the fourteenth day of this month; then the whole assembly of the community of Israel will slaughter the animals at twilight.
When God instituted the Passover, He commanded that the paschal lamb should be slain on the 14th day (Passover) “at evening” that is, during the time after the sun passed its zenith (~3 PM), and extending until sunset.Also in must only sacrifice the Passover animal at the place where Yahweh your God chooses to have His name dwell. Do this in the evening as the sun sets at the same time of day you departed from Egypt.
Deuteronomy 16:6 must only sacrifice the Passover animal at the place where Yahweh your God chooses to have His name dwell. Do this in the evening as the sun sets at the same time of day you departed from Egypt. Where the family would put bloodon door post so angel of death would Passover them.
In John 1:29 John Baptist stated, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world” Jesus became the paschal lamb. To be called a Lamb of God means that God gave Jesus to be killed like a lamb for our sins so we could live forever. Just like the lamb on each Passover day, Jesus was taken to the altar. Blameless and sinless, He became sin for each one of us.
Jesus declared, It is finished.” The Bible tells us that He gave up the spirit. His life was taken. in John 19:28-30 The Greek word is Tetelestai the verb teleo, which means “to bring to an end, to complete, to accomplish or paid in full.He was declaring the debt owed to His Father was wiped away completely and forever. Not that Jesus wiped away any debt that He owed to the Father; rather, Jesus eliminated the debt owed by mankind—the debt of sin. Jesus died victor and accomplish His work what came to do.
Believer Bible wrote, For three hours, the earth has been enveloped in thick darkness. Now “Immanuel’s orphaned cry” echoes through the universe: “My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?”
Behind the poignant question lies an awful reality—the suffering Savior actually was, literally and completely, forsaken byw God. The Eternal Son who had always been the object of His Father’s delight was now abandoned. The Perfect Man who unfailingly did the will of God experienced the terrible desolation of being cut off from God.
The question is, “Why?” Why should the holy, sinless Son of God suffer the concentrated horror of eternal hell in those three long hours of darkness? Scripture gives us the answer. First of all, God is holy, righteous, and just, and this means that He must punish sin wherever He finds it. To wink at sin or to overlook it is impossible for God. That brings us to the second point. Although
The Wareen Weirsbe wrote The opening words of the psalm immediately transport us to the cross in Matthew 27;46 and Mark 15:34, for Jesus quoted them at the close of a three-hour period of darkness . “I am not alone,” Jesus had told His disciples, “because the Father is with me” John 16:32, and yet He cried out that the Lord had forsaken Him. When He spoke these words, He had been engaged in a mysterious transaction with the Father, dying for the sins of the world. On the cross, Jesus was “made sin” a and made “a curse” Gal. 3:13 for us. In some inexplicable way He experienced what condemned lost sinners experience “away from the presence of the Lord.
