The Word of Regeneration

Matthew 27:39-46

Passing By the Crossroads of all the Ages.

Three Easy Steps to Taunting God in his Face.

Borrowed Words Incoherently Spoken

With the light extinguished, the temple deserted and the curse placed firmly on the crucified one, the almost incoherently spoken words are borrowed from the despairing part of the Psalm and left hanging without resolution as the Word of God himself (of whom it must be said that he is with God and that he is God) speaks to God (who stands silent) out of his own darkness, desolation and accursedness. His cry of agony in death is blended with the incoherent cry of the new birth.
