Psalm 22 is known as one of three Shepherd Psalms (Psalms 22, 23, and 24). Psalm 22 is a prophetic psalm written by David and it gives a “picture” of the cross from the perspective of our Good Shepherd, Jesus. The psalm describes in great detail the suffering and death of Jesus that would take place 1,000 years later. Jesus quoted this psalm while on the cross when He cried, “My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? (Mat 27:46, Mark 15:34).
