My daily exploration of the Bible, taking it one chapter at a time. If I do it everyday, it'll take 1189 days.

Isaiah 53

The Gospel of Isaiah - the Spiritual Climax of the Old Testament

The servant believes God and has lived with him. He didn't look that special. He was rejected and knew suffering.

He bore our sufferings for us.

For us he was crushed and pierced. When he is wounded, we get healed. Like a lamb going to slaughter, he didn't complain. He left no children and died as a sinner. But he had not sinned.

But this was all God's plan, because he would cause the servant to see life again. So he will be then considered great.

Key verses:
2. He had no beauty or majesty to attract us to him,
nothing in his appearance that we should desire him.
3. He was despised and rejected by men,
a man of sorrows, and familiar with suffering.
4. Surely he took up our infirmities
and carried our sorrows
5. But he was pierced for our transgressions,
he was crushed for our iniquities;
the punishment that brought us peace was upon him,
and by his wounds we are healed.
7. he did not open his mouth;
he was led like a lamb to the slaughter
9. He was assigned a grave with the wicked,
and with the rich in his death,
though he had done no violence
10. the Lord makes his life a guilt offering
11. After the suffering of his soul,
he will see the light of life
12. he poured out his life unto death,
and was numbered with the transgressors.
For he bore the sin of many,
and made intercession for the transgressors.
