Who is Eli/Eloi?
HSB Wrote:In Matthew 27:46 and Mark 15:34 Yeshua cried out "Eli, Eli, Lama Sabachthani" which we are told means "My God, My God, Why have you forsaken me? We are informed that some of the crowd thought Yeshua was calling for Elijah. Now this quotation happens to be the first verse of Psalms 22, which is an amazing description of one being crucified, gambling for clothes, etc. But here is my question. What language was Yeshua speaking at the time, Hebrew or Aramaic? I understand that in Hebrew Eli means God, but also serves as a short form for Elijah. If Yeshua was speaking Hebrew it would explain why the crowd was a bit confused..i.e. was he calling for God or Elijah? What about Aramaic? is there a similar short form for Elijah and God that would explain the crowd's confusion? Because if there is not, then we know Yeshua spoke Hebrew on the cross! Thanks in advance for your insights!!

Listen to the audio tape for Janet Magiera's understanding:
