Podcast Episode- The Gospel According to Isaiah 53- The Life of the Suffering Servant

5 Predictions about Jesus life. The predictions were made:

  • He would be a servant.  He came not be served but to serve and to give His life a ransom for many.

  • His coming would be notable.  He is that root out of dry ground, that life in the dessert.  He is the way, the truth and the life.

  • His appearance was not notable, but He is beautiful to all that know Him.  He has the beautiful feet of the one who brings good news.

  • His experience was like ours, and we can know that He has dealt with all of the grief and sorrows of life that we do.  He loves us and cares for us.

  • He was rejected, and as a result of His rejection and substitutionary death on the cross, you and I can be accepted into the family of God, and be forgiven of all of our sin.
