And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? that is to say, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?(Matthew 27:46) KJV
Jesus wasn’t forsaken, but his separation from God the Father by total darkness was a picture of two things:
- The sacrifice which was necessary to make creating the universe possible,
- the loss of fellowship with God caused by sin.
Part of the reason why we’ve been working to resolve particle physics with the moments before creation began when there was darkness on the face of the deep were to answer this question:
We know God is light – and I have often pondered the declaration of verse 4, how that if God DIVIDED the light from the darkness, were they previously combined? I don’t know if I understand how that could be possible or if it would have any relevance here, especially in relation to free will.. just food for thought.– Diligent Bible Scholar
The answer to the Diligent Bible Scholar’s question is:
Light and darkness have to be separated because the manifestation of free will is only possible by combining them.– Answering the Diligent Bible Scholar
