 Faith Strengthened Chapter 26  Part 2  

Matthew 27:46, "And about the ninth hour, Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, ‘Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani,’—that is to say, ‘My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?’" See the same passage in Mark 15:34.

By this exclamation, Jesus clearly announced that he was not a God, but was like other mortals, who invoke God in the day of trouble.
