Good News Translation (GNT)
46 At about three o'clock Jesus cried out with a loud shout, “Eli, Eli, lema sabachthani?” which means, “My God, my God, why did you abandon me?”
If Jesus was the same being as his Father and has all the power as his Father acc ...[text shortened]... r do something he himself could not do?
And why did he not ask the holy spirit this question?
You seem unable to grasp that Jesus was also human. This was the only way that God could die for man's sin. Only the flesh could die, not the Spirit. Jesus was crying out from His sufferings in the flesh like any other man in His appeal to God. Don't you remember that John says that the Word became flesh and dwelt among men. He also said the Word was God. Paul points out that during this time the Son had humbled himself to take on the flesh of men. If you would use a little logic here, you should be able to put it together.
There was no need to turn around and ask the Holy Spirit the same question He had just asked the Father, because they are in agreement and the Father is the authority at that time. But after the resurrection all authority in Heaven and on Earth was give to the Son of God and His Christ. Jesus actually calls out to GOD, which could also include the HOLY SPIRIT, as well as the SON.
The Trinity never implies that the Father and the Son are the same person. However, it does imply that the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spiirt is the same Spiritual Being called God or YAH. In THE NAME of the FATHER, the SON, and the HOLY SPIRIT.
There is only ONE NAME, not three names. Notice it does not say in the NAMES, but in the NAME. That NAME is YAHshua as in Jesus and YAHweh as in Jehovah and YAH as in HalleluYAH.
HalleluYAH !!! Praise the Lord! HOLY! HOLY! HOLY!
