“Elohi, Elohi, lama sabachthani!” Translated means, “father, father, why hast thou forsaken me?” These as the last fleeting words in Greek from Christ during his crucifixion. This was a tear-jerking moment as I sat in the church audience while the play traversed through the book of Mark, one of the Canonical Books of the Biblical New Testament.
