Jesus' lonely cry of, "My God, my God, why have you forsaken me!" is a desperate cry of loneliness. I believe this was the worst and the most horrible part of the crucifixion for Jesus. I believe it was worst than the beatings, the betrayal of Judas, the desertion of the disciples, the humiliation of the crucifixion, the being spit upon, the crown of thorns, the nails in His hands, the mocking, the emotional torment, and even the mental torment. None of these compared to what He is facing at this moment on the cross. This was the worst moment of the crucifixion. Jesus is all alone at this moment in His life. Not even the Father is with Him. This one cry reveals the horror of the moment for Him.
