Strong Evidence for Christ

 cross-tagged

Isaiah 53 is considered the greatest Old Testament prophecy of Christ.

How could Isaiah accurately predict Jesus’ death in such detail seven centuries in advance? Only by the power of the Holy Spirit (1 Peter 1:10-12; 2 Peter 1:20-21).

Two facts about Jesus

  1. Being innocent, He did not deserve the cruelty He suffered (v. 9).
  2. He is worthy of the exaltation He received (vv. 10-12).

Two facts about us

  1. Being guilty, we deserved the punishment He suffered on our behalf (vv. 5, 6, 8).
  2. We are unworthy of the salvation He provided (2 Corinthians 5:21; 1 Peter 2:24-25).

So how shall we respond to all this?

A response many make is unbelief (Isaiah 53:1; John 12:37-41).

For a totally different response, see Acts 8:26-39.

Have you looked at Isaiah 53 lately?
