Eli, Eli, Lama, Sabachthani
Question: When Jesus was dying on the cross, He cried out, "Eli, Eli, Lama, Sabachthani" which translated means, "My God, My God, Why hast Thou forsaken Me?" (Matt. 27:46) Why did His Father forsake Him and why are the original Aramaic words recorded in Scripture? Why didn't Matthew just record the meaning of the words?
