God Abandoned by God

I've quoted this before, but it deserves further reflection on Good Friday:

Christian identity can be understood only as an act of identification with the crucified Christ, to the extent to which one has accepted that in him God has identified himself with the godless and those abandoned by God, to whom one belongs oneself. (J├╝rgen Moltmann, The Crucified God, pg. 19)
