Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Isaiah 53:1


53:1 Who - Who, not only of the Gentiles, but even of the Jews, will believe the truth of what I say? And this premonition was highly necessary, both to caution the Jews that they should not stumble at this stone, and to instruct the Gentiles that they should not be seduced with their example. The arm - The Messiah, called the arm or power of God, because the almighty power of God was seated in him. Revealed - Inwardly and with power.

    A much needed reminder of God's unfailing love. It is very humbling and at the same time very encouraging to know His Holy Spirit continues to call us and fill us.

    These are the prophesies of prophet Isaiah about Jesus coming to earth to redeem and reconcile the world back to God through his suffering and his death on the cross. Thanks
  • Temo Laliqavoka
    it is the instruction form God to Jesus and Jesus kept his commandments
  • Sam Bogitini
    I would like just to comment on verse 2. I always wondered what Jesus really look like. He "...hath no comeliness ..." "...no beauty that we should desire him.." This is a far cry from the one depicted in the paintings. Other scriptures depicted him as strong, bold and sometimes sarcastic and challenging. I LIKE THAT !!
  • Tifanay Phillips
    reading the passage concerning Isaiah 3 has opened up a whole new view of what God did for mankind thru his son Jesus. I feel so much appreciation to God for considering my st backs , down falls, sickness, and failures. God deserves all praise for the marvelous thing he has done in Christ Jesus
