Seven Last Sayings of Jesus

Matthew 27:46
” My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?”
This was a direct quotation from Psalm 22:1.  It was during the time of darkness that Jesus had been made sin for us. ( 2 Corinthians 5:21)  He had been forsaken by the Father.  That darkness was a symbol of the judgment that He endured when He was “made a curse” for us. (Galatians 3:13)  Psalm 22:2 suggests a period of light and a period of darkness; and Psalm 22:3 emphasizes the holiness of God.  How could a Holy God look with favor on His son who had become sin?
