Was Jesus really forsaken on the cross?

What did it mean when Jesus said, "My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?" Was he really forsaken by God, or was something else going on? My take on this has been posted online at Christianity Today here:

He's Calling For Elijah! Why We Still Mishear Jesus

"My God, My God, why have you forsaken me" was a cry of vindication, not despair.
