“And at the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani?—which means, My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me [deserting Me and leaving Me helpless and abandoned]?

And some of those standing by, [and] hearing it, said, See! He is calling Elijah!

And one man ran, and, filling a sponge with vinegar (a mixture of sour wine and water), put it on a staff made of a [bamboo-like] reed and gave it to Him to drink, saying, Hold off! Let us see whether Elijah [does] come to take Him down.

And Jesus uttered a loud cry, and breathed out His life.

And the curtain [of the Holy of Holies] of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom.

And when the centurion who stood facing Him saw Him expire this way, he said, Really, this Man was God’s Son (Mark 15:34-39 Amplified Bible, Classic Edition)!”

Jesus’ Father had not abandoned Him. God was well pleased with Jesus obedience.

“In the days of His flesh [Jesus] offered up definite, special petitions [for that which He not only wanted but needed] and supplications with strong crying and tears to Him Who was [always] able to save Him [out] from death, and He was heard because of His reverence toward God [His godly fear, His piety, in that He shrank from the horrors of separation from the bright presence of the Father].

Although He was a Son, He learned [active, special] obedience through what He suffered

And, [His completed experience] making Him perfectly [equipped], He became the Author and Source of eternal salvation to all those who give heed and obey Him (Hebrews 5:7-9 Amplified Bible, Classic Edition).”
