About: In commenting on Jesus’ so-called “cry of dereliction” — “And at the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani? which is, being interpreted, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? (Mark 15:34; see also Matthew 27:46) — the author [Lambden, online here] notes some textual variants and suggests that there is some academic support for ‘Abdu’l-Bahá’s reported proposition that this passage actually misquotes Jesus, and that the so-called “cry of dereliction” is actually an expression of the glory of martyrdom: “But this word Sabacthani is similar in sound to another which means glorify, and he actually murmured, ‘O God! O God! How thou dost glorify me.’” (See Mary Hanford Ford, “An Interview with ‘Abdu’l-Baha," Star of the West 24:4 (July 1933), pp. 103–107, online at bahai.works.)
