It is usually accepted by Bible scholars and believers that Jesus Knew that he was going to die on the cross for sometime before it actually happened. In fact, believers often state that his dying was part of God's plan and Jesus, being the son of God, was well aware that he was going to be crucified. There are statements in the Bible that support that he was aware of his fate, about the time he entered the city and the people strew palm fronds about his feet (Palm Sunday celebration). If he knew what was in store for him, why did he say: "My father why hast thou forsaken me?" He knew what the plan was, he knew that it would be painfully. It lacks logical sense. If he was in pain that he could not bear, he would have asked for the pain to stop. If he could perform miracles, stopping pain should have been easy. The more logical answer is: He thought he was a deity, but was not. The accounts of his knowing that he was going to die are not true. Being "forsaken" is not a logical response from a deity who is in on the plan which was proceeding as planed, unless the "plan" were only in his mind. Maybe "forsaken" is an error in translation?
