What is the mean of Jesus' cry out oh Lord why have you forsaken me...?


Hi Tsd - "Why have you forsaken me?" is from Psalm 22. If you read that psalm you can see lots of echoes of Jesus' situation on the cross.


dude this helped me allot with my powerpoint for class thank u very much!!


Close eyewitnesses agreed and said V 54 When the centurion and those with him who were guarding Jesus saw the earthquake and all that had happened, they were terrified, and exclaimed, ‘Surely he was the Son of God!’
