Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Matthew 27:46


27:46 About the ninth hour, Jesus cried with a loud voice - Our Lord's great agony probably continued these three whole hours, at the conclusion of which be thus cried out, while he suffered from God himself what was unutterable. My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? - Our Lord hereby at once expresses his trust in God, and a most distressing sense of his letting loose the powers of darkness upon him, withdrawing the comfortable discoveries of his presence, and filling his soul with a terrible sense of the wrath due to the sins which he was bearing. #Psalm 22:1|.


People's Bible Notes for Matthew 27:46


Mt 27:46 About the ninth hour. Three o'clock, after the Lord had been six hours on the cross. The cry that follows is from Ps 22:1. Why hast thou forsaken me? These words can only express the idea that he was treading the wine-press alone. As he hung on the cross, "made sin for us" (2Co 5:21), he was left to struggle without a sense of his Father's presence. My God, my God!. The cry shows that he still clung to the Father as his own.

Discussion for Matthew 27:46

  • Robert Hendrickson for verse 46
    Jesus was God but yet our bridge from heaven to earth. We could not do it humanly speaking. All needs to think if we were next to Jesus, that most of the negative comments would change to better positive comments and such. Just think about the 2 thieves who were was on the crosses next to Jesus. God can 't won 't look upon sin as God 's Son do did willingly 4 us. All knows knew that Jesus obeyed God,, the sin God could not stand is why God looked away for a time. More comments in a while. God bless all.
  • Leroy Smith for verse 46
    God had to turn away from the cross in order for the sin to attack Jesus on the cross, Jesus being human didn 't understand God at that time, so he asked, My God, My God, why hast thou forsaken me.
  • Anonymous for verse 46
    God was in Christ reconciling the world unto himself. John 1 1 In the beginning was the word and the word was with God and the Word was God, verse 14 and the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, So Jesus Christ was God manifested in the flesh. God is a Spirit and is eternal. So the eternal Spirit withdrew itself from the man flesh so the flesh could die and be the sacrifice for man kind. When it did the flesh cried out. Remember except that same Spirit that raised Jesus from the dead dwell in your bodies you wont go in the rapture of the Church. So the body of Christ was laid in the tomb until the Spirit united again with it and now we have a victorious Christ!!!!

    Zinnia you are so close to the truth but still so far away you are right it wasn t Jesus on that cross and many would agree with us especially Muslims However that s as far as they all get but the spirit of divine interpretation has blessed me with some hidden knowledge about Jesus but only through the scriptures are these mysteries revealed to me I was shot 15 times with an AK 47 assault riffle and since coming through that ordeal I been having visions of Jesus talking to me about translating the story of his death and resurrection in it s purest context
  • Florise for verse 46
    Yes it was Jesus who died on the cross. It was He who cried out, My God, My God, why hast thou forsaken me". When He was in the garden of Gethsemane praying during his passion, and asked His Father (God) if it were possible, to remove this cup from me--had he stopped his prayer there, there would have been no crucifixion, but then He added: but not as I will - thy will be done - I will drink it up. And so He did. Jesus had the Father's presence with Him at all times; His baptism by John when God himself spoke from heaven on Jesus' behalf, on the mount of transfiguration when God had to tell the disciples that Jesus was his beloved son, don't build temples to other men, just hear Him (Jesus). But now here on the cross, God was affected in such a way that darkness filled the earth to the point that it was reported that you could feel the darkness with the palms of your hands. Jesus was very God, yet he was very man. Jesus became sin for our sake, and every sin committed in past present or future, was borne that day by this man Jesus. SIN cannot tarry in the sight of God, even the sins placed on the Jesus sacrifice. Man had to die for man, but it took a God-man to be able to go this distance, and Jesus was the only one who could do this. It was the man Jesus who cried out, that day, but it was the God Jesus who allowed to keep him up there. It was not the nails that held him - but the love that He had for us. Just as sure as the grave could not hold Him, nor could the cross. When the angels removed the stone away from the tomb; It was not to allow Jesus to get out, but it allowed mankind to be able to get in. What kind of love is this! When we could not get to God, God sent God Jesus to us, and I'm so very glad that He did.
  • Mehwish for verse 46
    Jesus is God and but he was crucified on the cross, he cried, because he was human that time. If Jesus did not sacrifice himself for us then he would never get the place where he is now. God cannot be dead due to some pain. But he died because he was on human form. When he died, then after he got the seat with Father.
