The crucifixion of Jesus Christ is the greatest event in history; it is the central theme of the Scriptures; it is the crisis point through which God’s eternal purpose of redemption was accomplished. It is imperative that we study and know about this critical event in the life of our Savior, Jesus Christ. In this series, we examine one particular aspect of the crucifixion: the 7 statements Jesus made while He hung on the cross. These statements, which were uttered during the greatest event in history, are clearly significant. We will look at the order in which the statements were made, the situation and purpose for each statement, and the insight each one gives us into the mind and heart of our Savior as well as the reason that He died on that cross.

These Bible messages were preached in 2020 by Pastor Gregg Bing during the morning worship service at Grace Bible Church in Fort Worth, TX.

Why Have You Forsaken Me?

Jesus\' Words from the Cross

Jesus' last three hours on the cross were shrouded in a darkness that covered the land. It was during this time that He bore the sins of the world. As the time drew near for Jesus to die, He cried out with a loud voice, "My God, My God, Why have You forsaken Me?" This is the fourth statement of Jesus from the cross, the central of the seven things He spoke. It is the statement that best helps us understand the meaning of the cross, but, it is also the statement that is hardest for us to fully comprehend.

Scripture References: Psalms 22:1-21, Matthew 27:45-49
