GOD NEVER forsook Jesus Christ. His purpose was our salvation, by GOD's design. Three days later when all was accomplished legally GOD raised Him from the dead. This is Aramaic, ( Jesus Christ spoke Aramaic )not the Greek. Eli, Eli lmna shbqthni in Aramaic means: My God, My God for this purpose was I spared (or reserved) The Greek is: Eli Eli Lama Sabachthani - My God, My God Why has though forsaken me.
