Psalm 22: Christ in His Redeeming Death and Church-Producing Resurrection

Posted on Dec 15, 2011 | 1 comment

“My God, my God, why have You forsaken me?” (Psalm 22:1a)
“I will declare Your name to my brothers; in the midst of the assembly I will praise You”
(Psalm 22:22)

The subject of Psalm 22 is the Christ who has passed through His redeeming death and entered into His church-producing resurrection.  Psalm 22:1-21 gives a detailed picture of Christ in His suffering of death as typified by David in his suffering, but verses 22-31 refer to Christ in His resurrection, as typified by Solomon in his kingly reign.

  1. It is very touching to have such a vivid insight into the Lord’s suffering on the cross. Reading a psalm such as this one, and similar portions in the Old Testament like Isaiah 53, cause us to really love the Lord even more. Thank You Lord for your precious death!
