  • Yes Jesus is God. He was robed in flesh, when he said "why hast thou forsaken me", that was his flesh talking.

  • So does all man have the same frame of mind, because of our flesh or human nature?

  • Not all Christians believe Jesus was actually God. I know I personally don't. There is, and always has been, debate over the nature of Christ, so there has always been different opinions in respect to Jesus and His alleged divinity.

  • Jesus is God. But that doesn't mean that God is Jesus nor that God is a man. God is a trinity - one Supreme Being with three distinct, divine persons. He has always existed that way. So Jesus isn't God as a man - He is the God the Son who took on human form and is both fully human and fully divine. There is is till God the Father and God the Holy Spirit.

    And on the cross Jesus is not saying God has forsaken him. He's quoting from Psalm 22 which prophesied His suffering and death. He probably continued the Psalm in silence. Read the Psalm in full and you will see that Jesus did not think that His Father had given up on him but rather showed confidence in the Father despite immense suffering.
