Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Isaiah 53:5


53:5 Wounded - Which word comprehends all his pains and punishments. For our iniquities - For the guilt of their sins, which he had voluntarily taken upon himself, and for the expiation of their sins, which was hereby purchased. The chastisement - Those punishments by which our peace, our reconciliation to God, was to be purchased, were laid upon him by God's justice with his own consent. Healed - By his sufferings we are saved from our sins.


Discussion for Isaiah 53

    This is what the eunuch was reading when the Holy Spirit sent Philip to speak with him in Acts 8. And to clarify verse 1 here, who heard is with open ears because just hearing, many hear, but don't listen with an open heart full of the Holy Spirit or else this world would no longer stink of corruption and evil. Just because they go to church doesn't mean they hear, and doesn't mean they're saved.

    "All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all." The lost sheep cannot find themselves! The Shepherd goes in search of His own sheep. Our sins and iniquities were what made us lost. The Father sent Jesus into the world to save us from our sins, and bring us to the Father forgiven, cleansed, and made all new.

    (1-2) As old as the ages that man has been on the earth outcast and unfit; so too with the times of degeneration and sin have rendered the moral consciousness as tender as brick. Who will then by the time before appointed of God, be in anywise ready or able to know Him when He appears? For is it not we that are the desolate dry, and His visitation in the flesh the only living root to spring forth?

    We are living in a world that is full of corruption. They have lost there first love and forgot what jesus did for thm on the cross. He was beaten to a blooded pulp for our sins so that we could have life and have it more abundantable. Jesus made a way that we could reach heaven through him as our intercessor.
