Wesley's Notes for Isaiah 11:1


11:1 And - And having said that the Assyrian yoke should be destroyed because of the anointing, he now explains who that anointed person was. The stem - Or, stump: for the word signifies properly a trunk cut off from the root. By which he clearly implies, that the Messiah should be born of the royal house of David, at that time when it was in a most forlorn condition, like a tree cut down, and whereof nothing is left but a stump or root under ground. Of Jesse - He doth not say of David, but of Jesse, who was a private and mean person, to intimate, that at the time of Christ's birth the royal family should be reduced to its primitive obscurity.


Discussion for Isaiah 11:1

  • Rev. Autrey for verse 1
    Isaiah 11 reads, '1 Out of the stump of David s family will grow a shoot yes, a new Branch bearing fruit from the old root. 2 And the Spirit of the Lord will rest on him the Spirit of wisdom and understanding,the Spirit of counsel and might, the Spirit of knowledge and the fear of the Lord. 3 He will delight in obeying the Lord. He will not judge by appearance nor make a decision based on hearsay. 4 He will give justice to the poor and make fair decisions for the exploited. ... 10 In that day the heir to David s throne will be a banner of salvation to all the world. The nations will rally to him, and the land where he lives will be a glorious place. 11 In that day the Lord will reach out his hand a second time to bring back the remnant of his people. ... ' This is speaking of God as the Christ when he is born in Bethleham as Jesus. It tells how he will bring salvation to the world, and give peace and rest to his people. It specifically calls his the Lord in verse 11. And we know this is a reference to the Lord Jesus. All who believe in him are called s remnant, meaning that God 's church will be a small group. The people, then, who called Jesus the Son of David were not operating in ignorance. They knew these Scriptures and applied them to Jesus. In other words, the Holy Spirit had prepared them to know God as Jesus when he came to them. So when the Gentile woman from Syria said to Jesus, 'Have mercy on me, O Lord, Son of David, ' she was calling him both God and the expected Savior that was to come. Today, we read over these words and never understand what the woman was saying. We have lost track of Jesus as God. But he is! And it is my job to tell as many people as I can this wonderful truth.! May God bless you!
