The book of Psalms: Psalm 22

As we continue our journey through Book 1 of the Psalter, Psalm 22 offers us a window into the experience of God’s anointed as he suffers. Remarkably, God’s anointed suffers! David’s circumstances are not made explicit when he writes this Psalm, and yet the New Testament insists that this Psalm lays down a template for Jesus Christ’s experience of suffering and vindication– the cross and the resurrection in one Psalm.
