Bible Commentary for Matthew 27:46

Wesley's Notes for Matthew 27:46


27:46 About the ninth hour, Jesus cried with a loud voice - Our Lord's great agony probably continued these three whole hours, at the conclusion of which be thus cried out, while he suffered from God himself what was unutterable. My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? - Our Lord hereby at once expresses his trust in God, and a most distressing sense of his letting loose the powers of darkness upon him, withdrawing the comfortable discoveries of his presence, and filling his soul with a terrible sense of the wrath due to the sins which he was bearing. #Psalm 22:1|.


People's Bible Notes for Matthew 27:46


Mt 27:46 About the ninth hour. Three o'clock, after the Lord had been six hours on the cross. The cry that follows is from Ps 22:1. Why hast thou forsaken me? These words can only express the idea that he was treading the wine-press alone. As he hung on the cross, "made sin for us" (2Co 5:21), he was left to struggle without a sense of his Father's presence. My God, my God!. The cry shows that he still clung to the Father as his own.
