What Really Happened on the Cross

Series: What Really Happened on the Cross

Stuart Briscoe

When Jesus cried out in agony from the cross, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?,” it was much more than an expression of the horrifying physical pain of His execution.

At that moment, Christ’s spiritual separation from God as He took on humanity’s sins and paid the death penalty for them—the first and only time he ever was separated from the Father—was beyond excruciating.

Stuart Briscoe explains exactly what happened on the cross that day, and he describes the amazing love that motivated such a profound sacrifice.

Scripture: Matthew 27:45 - 27:46
