1. Matthew 27:46-47 English Standard Version (ESV)

And about the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying, “Eli, Eli, lema sabachthani?” that is, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”And some of the bystanders, hearing it, said, “This man is calling Elijah.”

Mark 15:34 | ESV

And at the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, “Eloi, Eloi, lema sabachthani?” which means, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”

Psalm 22:1 | ESV

To the choirmaster: according to The Doe of the Dawn. A Psalm of David.

My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?
   Why are you so far from saving me, from the words of my groaning?

2. Matthew 27:41-44 | ESV

So also the chief priests, with the scribes and elders, mocked him, saying, “He saved others; he cannot save himself. He is the King of Israel; let him come down now from the cross, and we will believe in him. He trusts in God; let God deliver him now, if he desires him. For he said, ‘I am the Son of God.’” And the robbers who were crucified with him also reviled him in the same way.

Luke 23:34 | ESV

And Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.” And they cast lots to divide his garments.

Psalm 22:7-8 | ESV

All who see me mock me;
   they make mouths at me; they wag their heads;
“He trusts in the Lord; let him deliver him;
   let him rescue him, for he delights in him!”

3. Luke 23:40-43 | ESV

But the other rebuked him, saying, “Do you not fear God, since you are under the same sentence of condemnation? And we indeed justly, for we are receiving the due reward of our deeds; but this man has done nothing wrong.” And he said, “Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom.” And he said to him, “Truly, I say to you, today you will be with me in paradise.”

4. Luke 23:46 | ESV

Then Jesus, calling out with a loud voice, said, “Father, into your hands I commit my spirit!” And having said this he breathed his last.

Psalm 22:25-26 | ESV

From you comes my praise in the great congregation;
   my vows I will perform before those who fear him.
The afflicted shall eat and be satisfied;
   those who seek him shall praise the Lord! May your hearts live forever!

5. John 19:26-27 | ESV

When Jesus saw his mother and the disciple whom he loved standing nearby, he said to his mother, “Woman, behold, your son!” Then he said to the disciple, “Behold, your mother!” And from that hour the disciple took her to his own home.

Psalm 22:9-10 | ESV

Yet you are he who took me from the womb;
     you made me trust you at my mother’s breasts.
On you was I cast from my birth,
     and from my mother’s womb you have been my God.

6. John 19:28 | ESV

After this, Jesus, knowing that all was now finished, said (to fulfill the Scripture), “I thirst.”

Psalm 69:21 | ESV

They gave me poison for food,
   and for my thirst they gave me sour wine to drink.

Psalm 22:14-15 | ESV

I am poured out like water,
   and all my bones are out of joint;
my heart is like wax;
   it is melted within my breast;
my strength is dried up like a potsherd,
   and my tongue sticks to my jaws;
   you lay me in the dust of death.

7. John 19:30 | ESV

When Jesus had received the sour wine, he said, “It is finished,” and he bowed his head and gave up his spirit.

Psalm 22:30-31 | ESV

Posterity shall serve him;
   it shall be told of the Lord to the coming generation;
they shall come and proclaim his righteousness to a people yet unborn,
   that he has done it.

Matthew 27:39-43 | ESV

And those who passed by derided him, wagging their heads and saying, “You who would destroy the temple and rebuild it in three days, save yourself! If you are the Son of God, come down from the cross.” So also the chief priests, with the scribes and elders, mocked him, saying, “He saved others; he cannot save himself. He is the King of Israel; let him come down now from the cross, and we will believe in him. He trusts in God; let God deliver him now, if he desires him. For he said, ‘I am the Son of God.’”

Psalm 22:7-8 | ESV

All who see me mock me;
   they make mouths at me; they wag their heads;
“He trusts in the Lord; let him deliver him;
   let him rescue him, for he delights in him!”

Implications:

  1. During his deepest moment of need, Jesus worshiped.
  2. When we truly trust that God is who he says he is, we live from a place of peace.
  3. Resurrection means we have the power to face our worst fears with joy.
  4. Resurrection means we can conquer anything through Christ.
