When God abandons Jesus

  1. He does. Its the first line of Psalm 22. You have to read the whole thing to get the context. The suffering servant gets vindicated.


    • So when Jesus says he was “abandoned” by God he was simply mistaken?


    • @Achiilies,

      I agree with James White on the need to look more deeply. So let us do that.

      The speaker of Psalms 22 says “O my God, I cry in the daytime, but thou hearest not; and in the night season, and am not silent.”[22:2]

      So the speaker of this Psalms is someone whose prayers are REPEATEDLY rejected by God. Not just a one time thing like what you may say about Gethsemane.

      On the other hand, Jesus according to Gospel of John says “Then Jesus looked up and said, “Father, I thank You that You have heard Me. I knew that You always hear Me,” [John 11:41-42]

      So lets review.

      The speaker of Psalms 22 has his prayers REPEATEDLY rejected by God day and night.

      Jesus on the other hand has his prayers ALWAYS answered.

      To conclude:

      The speaker of Psalms 22 is NOT Jesus.

  2. Fawaz. Is Psalm 22 the word of God?


    • As with other passages in the different Biblical canons, I don’t know for sure.

      Either way my point still stands.

      If God inspired Psalms 22, then the person about whom the Psalm is about is someone who had his prayers repeatedly rejected by God, day and night.

      I don’t see how this fits with Jesus as described in John 11:41-42.

  3. Fawaz. Do you agree Jesus was crucified and rose from the dead and is now seated at the right hand of the Father as David prophesied in Psalm 110?
