The Astounding Reason Jesus Cried Out “My God, Why Have You Forsaken Me?”

“My God, my God, why have you abandoned me?” Jesus cries out these words from the cross as he approaches death. Why? Did he feel abandoned by God the Father? Was he, in fact, abandoned? Why else would he make such a cry?

When we understand the profound reason Jesus cried out to his Father in this way, it will change the way we live our lives. Today, Dr. Edward Sri explains to us how.

Dr. Sri also wrote an incredible Pocket Guide to the Stations of the Cross. Check it out!
