Isaiah 53 is often referred to as the Gospel According to Isaiah. With his song of the Servant, Isaiah, beginning in Isaiah 52:13, gives the perspective of future Israel looking back at the cross and the Messiah whom they pierced.
Through this series, we have seen the exaltation of the Servant, the rejection of the Servant, the substitionary work of the Servant and the silent submission of the Servant. Before completing this series, this lesson slows down to focus on one verse, Isaiah 53:10, in which we see the Servant crushed. We examine how the Servant was crushed, and why it pleased the Lord to crush Him. Seeing Isaiah 53:10, in the context of the Gospel, we come to a greater understanding and appreciation for the Cross of Calvary.
May you be blessed by God's Word as you listen to today's lesson. Thank you for listening.
