Reading along with us in Isaiah & 2 Kings? Here’s today’s reading:

Isaiah 53 (ESV)

Who has believed what he has heard from us?
    And to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed?
For he grew up before him like a young plant,
    and like a root out of dry ground;
he had no form or majesty that we should look at him,
    and no beauty that we should desire him.
He was despised and rejected by men,
    a man of sorrows and acquainted with grief;
and as one from whom men hide their faces
    he was despised, and we esteemed him not..

  1. Surely he has borne our griefs
    and carried our sorrows;
    yet we esteemed him stricken,
    smitten by God, and afflicted.
    5 But he was pierced for our transgressions;
    he was crushed for our iniquities;
    upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace,
    and with his wounds we are healed.
    🙏

  2. What a beautiful picture of the person and work of Jesus Christ! Where would we be if He didn’t bear our sorrows and allow the punishment that brought us peace to be on Him. Our transgressions are great but His mercy is stronger. I just don’t understand how the Jewish people cannot see their Messiah in these verses, and from what things are described that reflect the life of Christ, to see Jesus as that same Messiah. Praise God for knowing just what we needed and praise Jesus fo carrying it out…..

  3. 3 He was despised and rejected by men,
    a man of sorrows and acquainted with grief;
    and as one from whom men hide their faces
    he was despised, and we esteemed him not.
    4 Surely he has borne our griefs
    and carried our sorrows;
    yet we esteemed him stricken,
    smitten by God, and afflicted.
    5 But he was pierced for our transgressions;
    he was crushed for our iniquities;
    upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace,
    and with his wounds we are healed.
    6 All we like sheep have gone astray;
    we have turned—every one—to his own way;
    and the Lord has laid on him
    the iniquity of us all.
