Subject: Psalm 22.

Psa 22:1 To the choirmaster: according to The Doe of the Dawn. A Psalm of David. My God, my God, why have you forsaken me? Why are you so far from saving me, from the words of my groaning? 

Mat 27:46 And about the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying, "Eli, Eli, lema sabachthani?" that is, "My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?"

When our Lord Jesus cried out, "My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?", He was not if fact complaining, but was drawing the onlookers attention to Psalm 22, in which the following verses appear,

Psa 22:16 For dogs have surrounded Me; The congregation of the wicked has enclosed Me. They pierced My hands and My feet; 

Psa 22:18 They divide My garments among them, And for My clothing they cast lots. 

 In other words He was saying, "Read what David wrote some 1,000 years ago, and long before crucifixion was even thought of, it's happening right now. You are seeing the fulfilment of Scripture prophesy".

Note: "For dogs have surrounded Me". The Jews always referred to Gentiles as, "dogs".

Mat 15:26 And he answered, "It is not right to take the children's bread and throw it to the dogs."

The Cross was surrounded by Roman soldiers, Gentile dogs. 

At that time, whenever a Rabbi wanted to draw attention to a particular passage of Scripture, he always quoted the first few words, as there were then, no Chapter and verse divisions.

Bless you.

Edwin.
