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

    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.
  • A disciple
    (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?
