Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their father. Matthew 13:43

Christ’s forsakenness

The following sermon was preached by Rev. John Morrison (Retired Minister of Kilmuir and Stenscholl) at the Sabbath Morning Communion Service (Waternish), 21st August, 2011.

The text is Matthew 27:45-51: “Now from the sixth hour there was darkness over all the land unto the ninth hour. 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? Some of them that stood there, when they heard that, said, This man calleth for Elias. And straightway one of them ran, and took a spunge, and filled it with vinegar, and put it on a reed, and gave him to drink. The rest said, Let be, let us see whether Elias will come to save him. Jesus, when he had cried again with a loud voice, yielded up the ghost. And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent.”

“My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?”
