The Good Shepherd Gives His Life - Jim Scudder, Jr.

Today's Scripture: My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? why art thou so far from helping me, and from the words of my roaring? But I am a worm, and no man; a reproach of men, and despised of the people. All they that see me laugh me to scorn: they shoot out the lip, they shake the head, saying, He trusted on the LORD that he would deliver him: let him deliver him, seeing he delighted in him. Psalm 22:1, 6-8

We can’t comprehend the darkness or heaviness of the moment that Jesus Christ was becoming sin. He called out at the end of that period of darkness, “My God, my God why hast thou forsaken Me?” When we hear these words, I hope we are reminded again of something we have read in another part of the Bible. For in the book of Psalms, we are given some prophecies about this very moment. Hundreds of years before Jesus hung here, the psalmist wrote some amazing words.

There are three Psalms that deal with the Shepherd. Psalm 22 is the first Psalm of the three Shepherd Psalms, and it sounds as if it was written by the Son of God as He is hanging on the cross. Psalm 22 speaks of the Good Shepherd dying for the sheep. Psalm 23 speaks of the Great Shepherd who lives for His sheep, and Psalm 24 speaks of the Chief Shepherd who will return for His sheep.

But in Psalm 22, we hear about the Lamb of God. John 1:29 talks about how He (Jesus) “taketh away the sin of the world”. People should recognize that He is hanging on the cross after the darkness as the Passover Lamb - the Perfect Lamb that was slain.

There is no way Jesus could have staged someone wagging their head, looking up on Him and saying if He really were the Son of God, He could easily get down off that cross. He was the Son of God, and He easily could have gotten off the cross. He wasn’t there being murdered. It wasn’t the Jews who were responsible for His death. It wasn’t the Romans who were responsible for His death. We are responsible for the death of Jesus Christ. It was our sin that put Him and kept Him there on that cross.

Psalm 22 was written hundreds of years before Jesus hung on the cross, and the psalmist talks about events surrounding the crucifixion. If you do not believe the Bible, you need to examine this and wonder how this could have been predicted so exactly.
