Isaiah 52.13-53.12 – April 4, 2020

Isaiah 52:13-53:12

13 See, my servant will act wisely;
he will be raised and lifted up and highly exalted.

12 Therefore I will give him a portion among the great, 
and he will divide the spoils with the strong,
because he poured out his life unto death,
and was numbered with the transgressors.
For he bore the sin of many,
and made intercession for the transgressors.

(Isaiah 52.13-53.12, NIV)

In the fourth of the Servant Songs of Isaiah, Jesus is described as the one who bore the sins of many … he bore our sins.

Thought Questions:

Why would someone take on our pain and suffering when they did not have to? Are there any other places where you see this sort of action in our world today?

Do you consider yourself as one who has gone astray? Why do we have such a hard time recognizing this?

How should you respond to the fact that Jesus paid a price for you that you could not pay, that he made intercession for you?
