I don’t know if any of you have ever read material written by Evan Milton from his cerebralfaith.net/ website but some of his articles are very good and this is one of them.
When Jesus was hanging on the cross and was about to breathe His last breath, He looked up to the sky and cried out “My God, My God, Why Have You Forsaken Me!?” (see Matthew 27:45-46). This is a really odd statement for Jesus to make. And I don’t care who you are, if this outcry by Jesus didn’t strike you as odd when you first read it, you probably weren’t paying attention. The reason phrase by Jesus is so odd is because all throughout the gospels, Jesus appears to have an awareness of why He has to be crucified. Jesus said over and over that He had to die, and He said that it was to pay a ransom for many people.
But here, Jesus doesn’t appear to know why He’s in that situation. Was there was a communications breakdown between God and Jesus? Did God The Son misunderstand God The Father’s intent? Did The Father not lend Jesus the support that he expected? What is going on here? Moreover, doesn’t this imply a denial of Jesus’ deity? If He IS God, then how can He have a God?
There are two different ways I think this Bible difficulty can be answered.
