Understanding Why!

Psalm 22 |

Psalm 22 describes the suffering that King David experienced at the hands of his enemies and the anguish that he felt when it seemed that God was far away.

David himself is a prototype of Jesus Christ, as the ultimate fulfillment of Psalm 22 is in the life and ministry of the Lord Christ.

  • "My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?"
  • "I am poured out like water, and all my pones are out of joint."
  • "They have pierced my hands and feet."
  • "They divide my garments among them, and for my clothing they cast lots."
  • "They shall come and proclaim his righteousness to a people yet unborn, that he has done it."

Psalm 22: The Suffering of the Lamb of God, Psalm 23: The Peace of God

Without Psalm 22 there is no Psalm 23. "Therefore, being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ." (Romans 5:1)
