Why does God allow it?

“. . . My God, my God, why have You forsaken me?” —Jesus (Mark 15:34 NKJV)

From the darkness of the agony of the cross even Jesus asked why. And in a world filled with suffering, many are echoing his words. Why would a good God allow you to suffer and abandon you in the midst of your pain?

In this DVD Mart DeHaan takes you on a journey of discovery to explore Jesus’ claims about suffering. As he guides you through a maze of questions, you’ll hear from biblical scholars who have given thought to the “whys” of suffering and the apparent silence of God.

Examine the words of Jesus that reveal his response to human anguish. Consider whether you have reason to embrace what Jesus said about suffering.
