Our dear Keith is quoting the corrupted (sic) Bible to prove a point go figure

>In Mark 15:34 it says,"At the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud voice, "ELOI, ELOI, LAMA SABACHTHANI?" which is translated, "MY GOD, MY GOD, WHY HAVE YOU FORSAKEN ME?"

It is Eli Eli (Arabic Ilahi Ilahi) and get over it

>and in Matthew 27:46 it says, "About the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying, "ELI, ELI, LAMA SABACHTHANI?" that is, "MY GOD, MY GOD, WHY HAVE YOU FORSAKEN ME?"Did you learn something new?

Oh let me see: you are debating an issue in a language Syriac that is that you cannot speak read or write and a sentence in a corrupted (sic) book. This speaks volumes for how ignorant you are

And here is your lesson for you today there is such thing as language koine. Do you knoe what I'm talking about? Syriac had written dialects. You do not have a clue do you.

>Oh and don't forget the challenge to put up or... oh, you know you really should.

What challenge? that you are a demagogue? we know that already. Shame on you
