  • Isaiah 53 Analysis

    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. When looking into the passage, Christians see the ‘servant’ as Jesus, and his suffering for our sins, and the sacrifice he made for us. However like many passages throughout the bible, the interpretation in which it is understood is dependent on the perspective in which it is looked from. When breaking down these four verses, the perspectives that arrive are the time it was written at,…

Though they might imagine that they have the power to save themselves and that they have self-control, they need to…
