One of the most amazing prophecies in the Old Testament is actually a psalm! Specifically, Psalm 22 which details our Lord's sufferings on the cross. Join us in today's study as we compare this psalm with the Gospels and see so much of what we can praise Christ for!
DISCUSSION AND STUDY QUESTIONS:
1. Look at the opening words of Psalm 22. Who wrote this psalm? From what we know of his life, did he ever experience the things he’s written in this psalm? Who was this psalm ultimately pointing to?
2. How does the fact that Psalm 22 was written about 1,000 years before Jesus demonstrate the authenticity of its prophecy?
