When I Am Forsaken (Psalm 22)

Chase Replogle

Pastor

The New Testament authors often drew allusions from Old Testament words and images, but maybe never more movingly than Jesus’s words from the cross, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”

Those words are from Psalm 22. As Jesus suffered on the cross, it was a psalm that filled is mind. His quotation is only from verse one, but as the pain of the cross robbed him of breath, those few words force the whole of that psalm into the darkness of that Good Friday at Golgotha. And though the psalm opens with a cry of abandonment, it goes on to offer us words of hope and faith in suffering.
