Journal Through the Bible: Week 65 Thursday

This whole chapter is about Jesus!

Isaiah chapter 53

Does God issue any commands?

Does God make any promises?

Does this chapter teach anything about Jesus?

  • He is the one that would grow up before God as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground; He had no form of comeliness that any would desire Him.
  • He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief. We hide our faces from him because He is despised and we esteem Him not.
  • He has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows. We esteem Him as stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.
  • He was wounded for our transgressions. He was bruised for our iniquities. The chastisement of our peace was upon him and with his stripes we are healed.
  • The LORD laid on Him the iniquity of us all.
  • He was oppressed and afflicted yet He opened not His mouth. He was brought as a lamb to the slaughter and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, He opened not His mouth.
  • He was taken from prison and from judgment. He was cut off from the land of the living. For the transgressions of Israel was He stricken.
  • He made His grave with the wicked and the rich in his death. He did no violence and there was no deceit in His mouth.
  • It pleased the LORD to bruise him and put him to grief to make his soul an offering for sin. He shall see his seed and prolong His days and the pleasure of the LORD shall prosper in His hand.
  • The LORD saw the travail of Jesus' soul and was satisfied. By his knowledge this righteous servant has and will justify many because He bore their (our!) iniquity.
  • God will divide him a portion with the great and he shall divide the spoil with the strong because he has poured out his soul unto death and was numbered with the transgressors. He bare the sin of many and made intercession for the transgressors.

Does this chapter teach anything about yet-future events?

Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer.
