Did The God Of The Bible Forsake Jesus Christ?
One of the most difficult verses for me to understand from the Bible is when Jesus cried out that God has forsaken him...
About the ninth hour Jesus cried out in a loud voice, "Eloi, Eloi,[a] lama sabachthani?"which means, "My God, my God, why have you forsaken (egkataleipo) me?"
The word egkataleipo
1) abandon, desert
a) leave in straits, leave helpless
b) totally abandoned, utterly forsaken
2) to leave behind among, to leave surviving
So in the verse, Jesus basically accused God of forsaking him. However, God does not forsake faithful and righteous people...
For the LORD loves the just and will not forsake (azab) his faithful ones. They will be protected forever, but the offspring of the wicked will be cut off;
The word azab means...
1) to leave, loose, forsake
a) (Qal) to leave
1) to depart from, leave behind, leave, let alone
2) to leave, abandon, forsake, neglect, apostatise
3) to let loose, set free, let go, free
1) to be left to
2) to be forsaken
c) (Pual) to be deserted
2) to restore, repair
a) (Qal) to repair
Now if God does not forsake faithful people but has forsaken Jesus then does not mean that Jesus is not faithful? Or does it simply mean that it was not Jesus who was crucified on the cross just as the Quran (4:157) says?

Jesus mentioned Muhammad by the name in the Bible.
Did Isaiah 53 really prophesies about the crucifixion of Jesus? It supports Islam's claims about Jesus peace be upon him never died on the cross. I also addressed John 19:36-37 from the Bible and proved that Jesus never got crucified, since GOD Almighty promised that he will protect Jesus' body and not let even a single bone be broken. My question to all Christians is: How in the world is it possible for the feet to get nailed on the cross without any penetration to the bones by the nails, hence breaking part of the feet's bones?! I also added refutations to Exodus 12:46, Numbers 9:12, Zechariah 12:10 and Psalm 34:20, which supposedly prove the Christians' belief about Jesus crucifixion. I proved that this dogma has no truth what so ever and exposed the wrong Trinitarian English translation of Zechariah 12:10.
