The Father & Son are so close

Matthew 27:46 And about the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying, “Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani?” that is, “My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?”


This, I believe, was the most difficult thing about the crucifixion, for Jesus! Not for everyone else! The pain & torture is what we would dread. Those things, Jesus did endure, to the fullest, but Jesus & the Father had a very unified close relationship. At this very moment, all of the sin of the world was placed upon Him. He that knew no sin became sin for us that we might be the righteousness of God. The Father then could not look upon sin in approval, He turned His face. The shock and anguish of this moment as Jesus hurts because of this break in communion. Most go years seperated from God before they notice. The Father & the Son are so close. I believe, this is what caused Jesus to sweat drops of blood as He asks, if there be any other way to let this cup pass from Me. Truth is, His love for us & His obedience to the Father kept Him on a lazer focus. For the joy that was set before Him, He endured the cross. You & I, His joy! He also would be reminding those of Psalm 22, rabbis often would quote the 1st stanza, or verse in our case now.
