Alex Kremer 06-07-20 // The Substitutionary Work of the Servant; The Gospel According to Isaiah; Isaiah 53:4-6
As we continue our journey through Isaiah 53, sometimes referred to as the Gospel according to Isaiah.
In verses 4 thru 6, we are now in the third of five stanzas of this "Song of the Servant". This stanza is central to the entire song. It is in this stanza we see the cross, and Jesus substitution for the sinner, clearly on display.
At the cross, Jesus bore our griefs and carried our sorrows. At the cross he was pierced, crushed, chastised, and scourged for our transgressions and iniquities. And though we like sheep had gone astray, God caused the iniquity of us all to fall upon Him.
May you be blessed by the opening of God's Word.
Thank you for listening.
