Exodus 20:7 and Mark 15:34

Post by Giuseppe » Sun Jul 08, 2018 11:00 am

Was this commandament in Exodus 20:7
Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain
...disobeyed by Jesus here:
“My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”
An adoptionist reading would imply that the man Jesus was a sinner in that moment.

Uh, it comes from Psalm 22:1 (LXX 21:2). The Aramaic in Matthew and Mark is almost certainly anachronistic, a literary device, nothing more.

are you arguing for a GMark that is not separationist/adoptionist in doctrine ?
