Overview

The passage today is on the crucifixion, which is one of the most important events in Jesus’ life. We’re going to zoom in on verse 46: “… Jesus cried out in a loud voice … ‘My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?’” How do we understand Jesus’ cry? And what does it mean for us today?

Let’s look more closely at the cry, the word why, the word my, and Jesus’ question taken as a whole. The cry points to the fact of Jesus’ death. The word why points to the reason for his death. The word my points to the accomplishments of his death. The question taken as a whole shows us something about his motive for doing it.
