Tonight we examine this question, this cry, that Jesus utters from the cross and we see it as the deepest revelation of the “passion of the Christ.” Up to this moment, Jesus has been unbelievably calm. So when he starts to shout here – this is something way beyond physical or emotional suffering. It’s infinite spiritual suffering he’s enduring. His cry in Matthew 27:46 is quoted from Psalm 22:1. As Jesus hangs on the cross, he’s hanging on to Scripture. He’s persisting through with God’s plan. Psalm 22 starts in darkness, foretelling of this day (thousands of years before), but it ends with the hope that is still unfolding today! Jesus shows us we can take life’s inevitable “why’s” to God as our ultimate WHO. He can handle them and help us work through them.
