Wesley's Notes for Isaiah 53:8


53:8 Taken away - Out of this life. By distress and judgment - By oppression and violence. and a pretence of justice. His generation - His posterity. For his death shall not be unfruitful; when he is raised from the dead, he shall have a spiritual seed, a numberless multitude of those who shall believe in him. Cut off - By a violent death. And this may be added as a reason of the blessing of a numerous posterity conferred upon him, because he was willing to be cut off for the transgression of his people.


Discussion for Isaiah 53:8

  • Rev. Autrey for verse 8
    Isiah 53, verse 8 reads, '8 From prison and trial they led him away to his death. But who among the people realized that he was dying for their sins, that he was suffering their punishment? ' This verse has no meaning unless we realize that it was God himself who took our punishment. That is, God did not send someone else to take our place, but came himself. I only have to remind you of the words of Elizabeth, the mother of John the Baptist. Elizabeth said to Mary, 'What an honor this is, that the mother of my Lord should visit me. ' Mary responded by calling Jesus 'God my Savior. ' This agrees with what we read in Isaiah 35, 'Say to those who are afraid, Be strong, and do not fear, for your God is coming to destroy your emenies. He is coming to save you. ' If this makes sense to you, ask God and he will give you more! God bless you!
