1,000 years prior? Yes!
Psalm 22 was written by King David 1,000 years in advance of the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. It describes the crucifixion right down to the very words and actions of those present at His crucifixion. Can a mere human predict so precisely? No, only God can. David wrote what God inspired him to write. Read Psalm 22, then read the following eye witness accounts of Jesus' crucifixion: Matthew 27:39-46; Mark 15:22-34; Luke 23:33-39; John 19:23-30. After reading these, read Isaiah chapter 53. The accuracy is absolutely amazing. Psalm 22:1 describes the exact words which Jesus quoted while He was nailed to the cross. How many times in His short life did He call His Father, God? He called Him Father most of the time. Jesus was quoting verse 1 of Psalm 22, and still teaching while hanging on the cross; He was quoting a prophecy written 1,000 years prior. Plus, Jesus was not saying that God had forsaken Him; He tells us why He came into this world, see John 12:27 and Hebrews 2:14. Let me ask you a question, How could God forsake Him when He was God in the flesh (Jesus Christ)? Please read Isaiah 7:14, Matthew 1:23 and John 1:14 among other verses.
I know many people have asked, can the Bible be trusted, can I believe what is written? Just read for yourself. Again, how can a man predict so accurately what will happen 1,000 years in the future? A man can't be anywhere near as perfect as God's inspired scripture is. [Where will you find a more accurate historical account than right there in scripture? You can't].
2 Timothy 3:16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
[How much scripture is given by inspiration of God? [All]. And how much may be used for doctrine, reproof, correction and instruction? [All]. Not just some, but, [All]. Would there be any excuse acceptable for not believing all scripture? None that would be acceptable to God; He inspired it all.]
Study on your own, gain in wisdom, understanding, faith, trust, knowledge and truth [See James 1:5]. Supplement what you may learn in church. Form your own opinions based on truths you will only find in God's word. Some will attempt to mislead you concerning what Jesus said while on the cross; don’t let that happen to you. It is an absolute shame that so many, so-called Preachers, try to tell you that God forsook Jesus Christ on the cross. Again, learn the truth from God’s word for yourself by actually studying it; what a concept. If this offends someone, guess what, you need to be offended for not complying with the following verse and actually learning the truth from Gods word:
2 Timothy 2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
