Lecture 8, The Curse of the Cross:

Of the sayings on the cross that Jesus uttered, the one that has given Christians the most difficulty is “My God, my God! Why has thou forsaken me?” What exactly did Jesus mean by those words? Is it just an expression of how He felt? Or was Jesus really forsaken by the Father as He bore the sins of His people? In this message entitled “The Curse of the Cross,” Dr. Sproul teaches us about the biblical concept of the curse and the necessary implications it has on our understanding of Jesus’ atonement.
