Probably my most favourite thing Jesus says. I’d like to get both an Atheist and Theist interpretation of this utterance.
Now. I don’t really care for Jesus. He hasn’t done much for me in this life and I could use his help. Quite honestly, he’s no match for my demons. So I don’t view him as my saviour. Empty promises. Good guy tho.
Now this saying reveals a lot about Jesus and his so called relationship with God. IMO - this is the moment where Jesus is up on that cross - dying for air - and he realizes he’s screwed.
All of those miracles and healings and efforts of good will, teaching, preaching - it has all come to naught. He is going to die a slow suffocating death nailed up on a cross. And some asshole is going to offer him a sponge soaked in vinegar as an offering.
So, that’s my view on this utterance. Basically Jesus realizes that he’s alone in the world. The good days are over and this so called God has - in the end - forsaken him. Jesus becomes an Atheist at this moment.
What do ya’ll think?
