Psalm 22 on the
Nature of His Execution
Why did Jesus cry out from the cross:
n“My God, my God, why have you abandoned me?”
He was quoting Psalm 22; it tells of one:
nAbandoned by God
nSurrounded by enemies
nHands and feet pierced
nClothes gambled away
nBones out of joint
nLaid in the dust of death
This describes crucifixion before it existed, and Jesus’ crucifixion in particular!
