    Isaiah 53 Analysis

    • 1038 Words
    • 5 Pages

    The passage of Isaiah 53 (4-8), for many centuries has been summed up as a poetic song in which the prophet Isaiah depicted the climatic period of world history in which the coming Messiah will arrive. In today’s culture this view is again reoriented in that many Christians alone see this passage to be a prophecy of the ministry in which Jesus Christ will walk.

    servant in Isaiah 53. God’s promise of many children of Zion is fulfilled through the vicarious suffering of the servant to whom the offspring was given. Paul seems to acknowledge the larger theological context of Isaiah 49-54 and applies its theological pattern to his argument with Judaizers. The nuance of Paul’s argument is not the competition of the number of children between the two women but; rather, the birth origin of the two different children: from the present Jerusalem (Hagar, Ishmael,…

    The prophecy that spoke to me the most out of the eight prophecies is Isaiah 53:7 “He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth; like a lamb that is led to the slaughter, and like a sheep that before its shearers is silent, so he opened not his mouth.” This verse represents Jesus Christ, completely absent of sin, yet shows His complete obedience to God, as Jesus becomes the perfect atoning sacrifice to give His righteousness to sinners. Jesus Christ left His divine…
