Isaiah Chapter 53 Discussion

  • Ronald Whittemore - In Reply on Isaiah 53 - 1 year ago
    Hey Patrick42

    My understanding is the arm of the LORD revealed was for Israel and Jesus came for the lost sheep of Israel Matt. 15:24 and fulfill the law and the prophets, Matt. 26:54.

    John 12:37-41 But though he had done so many miracles before them, yet they believed not on him: 38 That the saying of Esaias the prophet might be fulfilled, which he spake, Lord, who hath believed our report? and to whom hath the arm of the Lord been revealed 39 Therefore they could not believe, because that Esaias said again, 40 He hath blinded their eyes, and hardened their heart; that they should not see with their eyes, nor understand with their heart, and be converted, and I should heal them. 41 These things said Esaias, when he saw his glory, and spake of him.

    Also, there is Matthew 8:14-17 Luke 22:35-38 Acts 8:26-35 Romans 10:11-21.

    God bless,

    At a time of the death of pope Benedict xvi, on new years eve 2022. This most highly esteemed personality on earth along with his predessessor the late saint pope John Paul 2 the great. Of which did fulfil many words of the prophets of old, but i want to bring to mind a tittle of a precious thing done by the pair. Noting that Benedict whose name means branch, and did visit Jerusalem in may 2009, in a year he officially called to celebrate the apostle Paul, by in depth studies of his gospel message in the world.

    Pauls work as a servant of Jesus Christ/Yeshua, is rich with prophecies of which it can surely be assumed that Pauls writings known as his gospel, was and were truly as he claims in them, that is of heavenly revelation, not of flesh and blood.

    In a nutshell ISAIAH 53 the arm of the Lord is the man Paul/Saul of Tarsus, even though the man Christ Jesus is the only name whereby all must be saved, ie He who was crucified on a tree, but it remains with much controversy between jew and gentile, but Psalms 22 is i am sure is Jesus and Paul is his servant...................who also is that prophet promised since Moses time ( re Deuteronomy 18).

    I can see many eyebrows being raised if you reading this for first time, but consider, is not as you were ever told. Of which are words found in the previous chapter Isaiah 52............Paul is as one who surnamed himself by the name of Israel, and found in many places in the book of Isaiah in re words of the servant Israel.

    Hello Takako. Actually, from Isaiah 52:13-15 to Isaiah 53:1-12 (from the Old Testament), are prophecies about One coming Who would find fulfilment in the Person of Jesus Christ & the suffering He had to endure to make payment for our sins. Isaiah didn't know His Name - only what God revealed to Him in this Word given to him.

    So yes, Isaiah 53:3 does show how Christ, in the New Testament accounts, was rejected by so many, when He had so much love for people, even to those who hated Him. Yet that love did not cause Him to turn away from such a shameful agonizing death. He knew that only if He died would mankind have any hope to live as God intended.

    Dear Enid

    Sometimes we have a wrong impression of God's people mentioned in the Bible. We think that they are invulnerable like robots or angels or they should be like that. But they were ordinary people like me and you. Having the same passions, struggles, failures, good and bad times, their up and downs just like everybody else in the world. Just like us. What made them exceptional is that they regreted and repented for what they had done and went back to God to be forgiven. Of course one has to be very careful not to fail but we are sand/soil and will eventually fail sometime badly or less badly.(hopefully not that bad).The Bible gives a true description of their personalities. Not like biographies written by men for some great men in the world that idealize them and write nothing about their errors. David was one of them. Sure he has done things that hatdly anybody does. But he was a man after God's heart because he was always ready to admit his errors/failures and repent. Not like Adam who tried to justify him by blaming Eve. And don't forget that he was severely punished by God sometimes, and also he was not allowed to build a temple for God as his son Solomon did .All those people, good or bad, are examples for us now for what to do and what not to do.

  • GiGi - In Reply on Isaiah 53 - 2 years ago
    Hello Enid.

    Yes, It is said of David that he was a man after God's own heart. From reading the account of his life, it seems that he was a man who sinned like all of us, but came to God repentantly for mercy regularly. He was a devout believer in God. Scripture, on the whole speaks well of David.
  • Enid bissember on Isaiah 53 - 2 years ago
    pondering on the life of David . He seemed to have been a troubled man who was surrounded by confused persons and was torn between good and evil. he had a mixed up family but yet he always cried out for mercy. do you think david was truly repentant. tha is a question i have even reading the psalms
  • Rick - In Reply on Isaiah 53 - 2 years ago
    Robert Rogers That's like oil on water, Judaism still believes in doing the over 400 laws in the old testament to be righteous for God for sin committed.

    Christianity paid for by Jesus Christ accepting what was accomplished by God through Him which was actually fulfilling the law of Love. Gods love Mathew Love God with all your heart soul mind and strength and thy neighbor as thyself. Can't be done without being born again and walking by the spirit better known as agapeo in the church epistles.

  • THE ELECTION OF THE GENTILES - In Reply on Isaiah 53 - 2 years ago

    7. Know ye therefore that they which are of FAITH, the same are the children of Abraham.

    8. And the scripture, foreseeing that God would justify THE HEATHEN through faith, preached before the gospel unto Abraham, saying, In thee shall ALL NATIONS be blessed. [Jews and Gentiles]

    22. But the scripture hath concluded all under sin, that the promise by faith of Jesus Christ might be given to them THAT BELIEVE.

    23. But before faith came, we were kept under the law, shut up unto the faith which should afterwards be revealed.

    24. Wherefore the THE LAW [Moses] was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith.

    25. But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster.

    26. For ye are all the children of God BY FAITH in Christ Jesus.

    27. For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ.

    28. There is neither JEW NOR GREEK, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all ONE in Christ Jesus.

    29. And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise.

    If you will search the scriptures in the New Testament on, THE ELECTION, you will learn that by going to the Cross, Jesus RATIFIED (put in force, as in Legal) the New Covenant.

    The Old Covenant was torn (in the Temple) from bottom to the top. The veil was enormous, and only God could've done that.

    We await for the TIMES OF THE GENTILES to be completed. We're close! It has been almost 3000 years.

    Mishael comment: I believe that when the New Testament believers are 'caught up in the clouds' by Jesus;

    The ELECTION will pass back over to the Jews.

    The sudden absence of the Jewish believers in Jesus Christ, will show the Jews left behind that Jesus was indeed, the MESSIAH they had anticipated for thousands of years!

    Scales on eyes and ears will fall off. They will experience the Election.

    Some will stoically cling to disbelief. they will suffer for it.
  • Jesse - In Reply on Isaiah 53 - 2 years ago
    Robert Rogers,

    When it comes to salvation, Judaism and Christianity are in opposition to each other. I'm not sure that they complement each other at all. One is salvation through keeping the law (Judaism), and the other is salvation by grace (Christianity).

    A great study on the difference between the law and grace would be Galatians. It was written because false teachers attacked Paul's ministry and message that salvation was through grace alone, without the deeds of the law.

    The Judaizers professed to be believers in Jesus as Messiah. Their doctrinal approach was that the Gentiles were not in a position of Sons of the Covenant to receive the promises of God until they became Jews and they followed the Law. The first law they said that Gentiles must keep is circumcision.

    The form of the letter of Galatians was different from all of the other letters written by Paul. It's the only letter not containing a commendation. Paul did not commend the Jewish believers in Galatia because they were mixing law with grace. It is the only letter written by Paul that's addressed to more than one church.

    Galatians is a very important book that gives us the difference between Judaism and keeping the law, verses Christianity, salvation by grace alone, through Christ alone, apart from the law.

    Galatians is a shorter version of Romans. Romans is considered the Constitution of the Christian Faith. If we only had the book of Romans, we would have everything we need to know about the Christian faith. Galatians is considered to be the Declaration of Independence of the Christian Faith. Our independence and freedom comes through Christ, not the keeping of the law.

    Back then, when a Jew would crossover from Judaism to Christianity, it would cost them dearly. Their family would disown them, they would lose their job, and they would not be allowed in their own temple. They would be persecuted. It was as though they were dead to their fellow Jews. It's not much different today!
  • Robert Rogers on Isaiah 53 - 2 years ago
    I need help with analyzing the cross over from Judaism to Christianity. How do they really compliment and connect. Additionally, how do they divide from each other.
  • Aaron on Isaiah 53:5 - 3 years ago
    Isaiah 53 is in reference to what the Lord Jesus Christ did for us on the cross.

    He was wounded for our transgressions (it was our old sinful lives which put the Lord on the cross in the first place)

    6All 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.

  • Lou Contino - In Reply on Isaiah 53:1 - 3 years ago
    Christ felt the physical, emotional & spiritual pain that our sins had us bound in. Only Christ could feel it and remove it from us. Though once we accept Christ's Righteous Covering to remove our sins and free us from judgement, we take on the pain for others who may still be in sin. Our desire becomes Christ's desire to want to bring others to Christ for His glory.

    Isaiah 53 is a heart reaching chapter.v3

    Here it refer to Jesus wounded for my congression bruse for my inequity

    He was not guilty, I am but He did it all for me.

    That's love.
  • Lou on Isaiah 53 - 3 years ago
    Behold the Fifth Gospel that came 700 years before Christ Jesus arrival on earth as the King/ Servant/ Man & God. This will be The Nation of Israel's confession in the very end of times, as it is written in past tense. When The Nation of Israel shall confess that Jesus is the Christ and Blessed and that He came in the name of Lord. Jesus even told The Nation of Israel this, in Matthew 23:39. So in the end after the two witnesses of Moses and Elijah are gone, when The Nation of Israel is surrounded and about to be wiped out by adversaries, their eyes will be opened and they will confess Isaiah 53 and Herald Christ's Return. God will save His People. A remnant yes, but He will do it. Believe God, He Brings us The Truth.

    Fanny Crosby hymn on Isaiah 53:4-6

    1. Thro' the sacrifice of Jesus the Lamb,

    Thro' the blood full atonement is made,

    He has carried all our burdens of sorrow,

    And on Him our transgressions were laid.


    There is peace thro' the blood,

    Thro' the precious blood He offers so free;

    There is peace thro' the blood,

    O that precious blood is flowing for me.
  • Chris - In Reply on Isaiah 53:7 - 3 years ago
    Genesis 9:11 tells us that God promises to not use a flood to destroy the Earth & its inhabitants ever again as He did in Noah's days. Rather, it will be by fire ( 1 Peter 3:5-7). What we're seeing as destruction & loss of lives by fires, floods & earthquakes, are normal phenomena that have been occurring throughout history. However, it appears that their appearance now seem to come with greater frequency & force, to which one can conclude will eventually usher in the full extent of God's Anger (the Great Tribulation) that will be poured out upon the God-forsaking, Christ-rejecting World.

  • IVAN LEO STRICKLAND on Isaiah 53 - 3 years ago
    Here is laid a firm foundation for the trembling sinner to rest his soul upon. We are the purchase of his blood, and the monuments of his grace; for this he continually pleads and prevails, destroying the works of the devil.

    There can be no more important chapter in all the Bible than this one. For in this chapter is found that our soul can be saved by the lord Jesus 700 years before his birth. And while here on earth with the living that has very little meaning to most. Its when time is no more and eternity begins that having a saved soul is all that ever mattered in the beginning of life to the end. Not health- we all die...Not wealth...we lose it all the day we die. In the end. We can have a saved soul and go to heaven IF WE SO CHOSE thanks be to Jesus.
  • Joanne - In Reply on Isaiah 53 - 3 years ago
    Did not intend to instill sadness. Sad is bad. Smiles are better.

    Thank you for your words. God is good.
  • Chris - In Reply on Isaiah 53 - 3 years ago
    That was so sad to read, yet a wonderful testimony of God's Spirit's Work in you at a time of such great grief & loss. You have cast yourself upon the Lord's Mercies & He has ministered His Word of comfort to you in return in wonderful ways.

    Having lost both my parents at an earlier age, I too can relate how wonderfully the Lord undertook for me, "to give unto (me) beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that (I) might be called (a tree) of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he might be glorified". Isaiah 61:3. And that's what it is: that He might be glorified in us in every way.

    Whether in joy or grief, health or sickness, in the light or darkness, He is there - He is YHWH-Shammah (The Lord Who is Present - Ezekiel 48:35), the Lord Who never leaves or forsakes His children. Your rich memories, in your heart & in visible things around the house, will always be precious - maybe bringing in a tear or some times of great sadness, but still keeping his memory special & precious forever - till we meet again, indeed! Walk on in the joy & strength of the Lord, dear sister.
