The answer came after the event, and it was the resurrection of Jesus.
âAnd about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? that is to say, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?â (Matthew 27:46, KJV). This cry is a fulfillment of Psalm 22:1, one of many parallels between that psalm and the specific events of the crucifixion.
The prophet Isaiah says this about the Messiah: âSurely he took up our pain and bore our suffering, yet we considered him punished by God, stricken by him, and afflicted. But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healedâ (Isaiah 53:4â5). Jesus redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us (Galatians 3:13). He was made a sin-offering, and He died in our place, on our account, that He might bring us near to God. It was this, doubtless, that intensified His sufferings and part of why Jesus said, âMy God, my God, why have you forsaken me?â It was the manifestation of Godâs hatred of sin, in some unexplained way, that Jesus experienced in that terrible hour. The suffering He endured was due to us, and it is that suffering by which we can be saved from eternal death.
Jesus felt forsaken because he had taken upon himself the sins of the world and God, in his holiness, could not look upon him because of the sin he carried.

By one explanation, Jesus is quoting that Psalm which ends in Victory, so the Resurrection is the answer.
