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.

    Jesus' earthly mission is now over. He came as a sacrificial lamb and has now shed His precious Blood for the remission of our sins. Mission accomplished. Thank you dear Saviour of the world.

    Ar's comment to J. - no, Joseph of Arimethia would not have been at a consultation not a regular 'council meeting . J. of A. was a believer in Jesus. He would not have condoned His murder by his presence.

    "joe" one year, ago is right about what Jesus said oh the cross: Jesus was speaking in His native language, not speaking in tongues as in Acts. Jesus was GOD, not a 'separate 'son' from God. The flesh of Jesus (God's name) was what God inhabited while in His ministry on earth. Jn. 1:14; 1 Tim. 3:16. Jesus said, "When you have seen e, you have seen the Father." Jesus (God) had no need to speak in -

    "But Jesus yet answered nothing; so that Pilate marveled." I've heard some pretty strained and stretched out interpretations of this part: including, that Jesus was, by Roman law, confessing to the crimes by His silence. But a realistic understanding of Jesus' character, and of the things He was enduring, shows us something better, for our example. Self-Control, and a Superior Character of Faith.

    In verse 34 God had abandoned Jesus by taking away his protection and allowing him to be put to death.
