“My God, My God, Why Have You Forsaken Me”

Bob Moore will again be teaching from the book Final Words from the Cross by Adam Hamilton. Chapter 4 will be the lesson this week entitled “My God, My God, Why Have You Forsaken Me”.

 The Bible verses are Mark 15:33-36a. At the sixth hour darkness came over the whole land until the ninth hour. And at the ninth hour Jesus cried out in a loud voice, Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani?”—–which means, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me? “When some of those standing near heard this, they said, “Listen, he’s calling Elijah. “One man ran, filled a sponge with wine vinegar, put it on a stick, and offered it to Jesus to drink.
