In this paper, I will be illustrating through Isaiah the beauty and character of Jesus. I will be doing this by looking at the aspects of Jesus ' beauty as the Bridegroom, King, and Jesus beauty as the Servant of all, and Anointed Conqueror.

32:24-32). The name Israel literally means "Prince with God." Jesus ' servanthood is the perfect embodiment of that, all that God called Israel and the nations to be like. The Father ordained that Jesus is a servant of the people who hated and detested Him. Jesus was not affronted at Israel 's rejection but continued to be a servant to them.

Isaiah
