Isaiah 53: Surely he took up our pain
and bore our suffering,
yet we considered him punished by God,
stricken by him, and afflicted.
5 But he was pierced for our transgressions,
he was crushed for our iniquities;
the punishment that brought us peace was on him,
and by his wounds we are healed.
Did you know that you can read the entire story of the birth, life, and crucifixion of Jesus in the Old Testament? Surely that is possible with a close reading of the law and th prophets and the histories and the Psalms. Perhaps the clearest of all statements regarding the coming Messiah is found in Isaiah 53. Without any equivocation Isaiah states very clearly what will come to pass on that fateful Passover week in the future. Here is the entire rationale behind God’s love and grace for the humans he created. That we are His, in His hands must be clearly understood. If he chose through the murder of His one and only son in order to expunge the guilt of the whole world as God, creator, He was privileged to do so. Jesus humanity has been on full display from the moment He was born. His Godhood came to the fore in the garden conversation with His father and from thence He went forward to the fate His Father had decreed.
Amazing love, How can it be
That Thou my God shouldst die for me?
