Isaiah 53:1-12

Seven hundred years before Christ, the prophet Isaiah prophesied what will happen to Jesus. Many of the Rabbis will not read this chapter publicly today in their synagogues or believe that it is referring to our Lord Jesus Christ. Others claim that this was written in the period of the New Testament but in reality it was written seven hundred plus years before the time of our Lord Jesus and it was through this chapter that led the Ethiopian Eunuch to Jesus in Acts 8.   By the power and the inspiration of the Holy Spirit Isaiah begins to prophecy what will happen to our Savior. How shall we respond to this message?  Let us respond by giving God the glory.
