Series A Psalm of a Suffering Savior

The first of a trilogy of messianic psalms, Psalm 22 uses words from David’s own season of pain to anticipate the sufferings of Christ on the cross. Amazingly, those anticipated sufferings are described in remarkable details that are made all the more amazing by the fact that this song was penned hundreds of years before crucifixion was invented.

Part 1 - 10/19/15

The Cross from Jesus’ Perspective

What’s in a song? A lot when that song is Psalm 22. This Old Testament song of lament points us to a future event on the cross.  Just as we can see in Isaiah 53 Jesus’ suffering from the Father’s perspective, in Psalm 22 we get a glimpse of the agony of the cross from Jesus’ point of view. Today on Discover the Word!

Part 2 - 10/20/15

When Jesus Felt Utterly Alone

We all need solitude sometimes. But we wouldn’t like it 24/7,  especially if that solitude was a form of punishment. Yet even a prisoner in solitary confinement for a lifetime would not suffer as Jesus did. On the cross, God the Father turned His face from His only Son, leaving Jesus utterly alone. On Discover the Word, we will talk about when Jesus was “deserted,” as foreshadowed in Psalm 22. Listen today to Discover the Word!

Part 3 - 10/21/15

Jesus, Fully Divine and Fully Human

Jesus was both fully divine and fully human. Which means He wasn’t immune to experiencing human emotions. Today on Discover the Word, we will discuss the intensity of these emotions as David foretold in Psalm 22. Phrases like “I’m a worm . . . scorned by men . . . despised by people,” give us graphic word pictures of Christ’s very real distress on the cross.

Part 4 - 10/22/15

How Jesus Endured the Cross

Today on Discover the Word, we will talk about the intense physical violence Jesus endured on the cross, described in Psalm 22, 2,000 years before the actual event. This was long before crucifixion was even invented. While the film The Passion of the Christ gave us a graphic taste of that horrific event, it was still a tame depiction of what actually transpired. Join us right here on Discover the Word!

 

Part 5 - 10/23/15

A Message of Victory

Today on Discover the Word, we will discuss the last verse of Psalm 22, where David ends his agonizing song about the suffering Messiah with a message of victory. The psalm concludes on a high note, “Posterity will serve Him; future generations will be told about the Lord. They will proclaim His righteousness to a people yet unborn, for He has done it!” The amazing way Psalm 22 describes a “suffering Savior”—listen today on Discover the Word!
