Bible verse of the day #12

ID-100146182

Today’s verse is Matthew 27:46

In this verse, Jesus says “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” – but there is a couple of things I have to say about this verse. Firstly, there are four different accounts of Jesus’ last words:

Version 1: “Eli, Eli …My God, My God why have you forsaken me?” Matthew.27:46.

Version 2: “Eloi, Eloi…My God, My God why have you forsaken me?” Mark.15:34.

Version 3: “Father, into your hands I commend my spirit”. Luke.23:46.

Version 4: “It is finished”. John.19:30.

And secondly, the first two versions don’t sound like the words of someone who knew what would happen in advance and had planned it that way himself! It’s bad enough that Jesus had a ‘devil’ as one of his disciples – but I suppose everybody makes mistakes!

Come to think of it, if Jesus really was the son of God then he could have easily flown about the planet preaching to everybody, but instead he stays in Israel and allows himself to be crucified. If he really was that set on converting everybody then he is a bit of an under-achiever.
