Wesley's Notes for Mark 15:34


15:34 My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me - Thereby claiming God as his God; and yet lamenting his Father's withdrawing the tokens of his love, and treating him as an enemy, while he bare our sins.


Discussion for Mark 15

  • Joe
    Eaglesrock - I believe the pharse - Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani - is the language of Aramaic which was Jesus' native language. This is not the same as speaking in tongues.

    34 And at the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani? which is, being interpreted, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? Third time recorded Jesus speaking in tongues.
  • Isaac
    The crucification of Jesus is utter importance to us in Christ. It 's a powerful reminder of our pay for sins. The Bible online leaves an otherwise serious phenomenon that when Jesus gave up the ghost also darkness engulfed the whole land much to the splitting of the church veil in twain.
  • JOE FASH. for verse 39
    What Jesus did in reaction to how people was redicule him insulting and telling to come down if he is the son of God or king of the jew in all these he never ask for mercy form the Roman soiders and never yell out on people talking foolishly about him. despite the pain and the shame of the worst punishment in the land. if i was Christ may be i would have just come down like a dove to proof i can but thank god thou he put on the form of man he isn 't a man HE IS LORD INDEED.

    To J 's remark referring Mark 15 1. Yes, he was at the council , but he did not agree with the others as he was a follower of Jesus. Pleas read Luke ch.23 vs 50 to 54.
  • Was Joseph of Arimathea of Mark 15 43 at the council meeting of Mark 15 1?
