Two ends of Jesus


“It is finished.  Into Your hands I commend my spirit.”


“My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”



  1. I noticed that you lead with the Luke/John account of Jesus giving up his spirit into the air and into God’s hands and ended with the Mark/Mathew account of the forsaken and rejected Jesus. Very striking that juxtaposition. Something to think about as I partake in my first tenebrae service this evening. As always, thanks for the post.

    • I believe one of Wallis’ central claims is that the Tea Party – like any political movement – is not a Christian movement.

  5. This discussion led me to pick up John Carroll’s book the Existential Jesus which is an interpretive reading of Mark’s gospel. Carroll wrote that the line “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” comes from the first line of Psalm 22. I find it interesting that the other gospels are focused on turning the story into a fulfillment of prophesy, but Mark seems interested in, as Carroll eloquently states, Jesus’ forsakenness. I find something about that interpretation incredibly compelling. In Mark’s account Jesus is fully human. He is not on the inside with God, but on the outside with the rest of us.

  6. Yes he experiences the loss of God in Mark’s version. In the Johannine it seems he is in control.
