"God, why have you left me?"
This is what Jesus was asking when he cried out these words from the cross. The weight of the sin he carried separated him from his father. How terrifying it must have been for him. We felt sad as we heard these words from the Jesus of Nazareth movie. In our small groups we talked about how alone we felt when we are suddenly separated from our parents. We read Mark 15:33-35 and also Psalm 22:1 and discovered Jesus was fulfilling the Scriptures in his last hours.
What's next? Next week Jesus says, "I thirst." We will see this portrayed from The Gospel of John movie. We will also continue to work on cards for the Kairos prison ministry. Kids 5th grade and below join us at 10am.
