2: Jesus cried out "My God! My God! Why Have You Forsaken Me!?" While Hanging On The Cross.

Matthew 27 records this. Highly improbable Matthew would make up this saying and put it into Jesus' mouth since it makes it look like Jesus doesn't trust the Father, and it makes it look like Jesus forgot His mission.

Why did Jesus say this? He quoted the first verse of Psalm 22 verbatim. This is a messianic Psalm according to most biblical scholars.
