When Christ says, “My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?” He’s quoting Psalm 22:1.  While some people say another phrase or two of His suggests He might have quoted the whole thing, just saying the first verse is enough to call everyone’s attention to that entire psalm.  What is significant about Psalm 22?

-It is what leads into Psalm 23-

-It is where John 3:16 came from-

-Jesus is the Son of David now quoting David-

-Psalm 22 and Isaiah 52-53 give a more detailed account of the crucifixion than even the Gospels-
