Isaiah 53

Ancient Words (3 of 5)

Sermon Series: Ancient Words
Sermon Title: The Suffering Messiah (3 of 5)
Scripture Reading: Isaiah 52:13-53:1-12; Psalm 22:1-31; Matthew 21:33-46

The Jews of Jesus’ day were expecting a warrior king—a military Messiah to deliver them from Roman oppression and then judge the world from his throne in Israel. Therefore, for the first century Jew, the Servant Songs of Isaiah 42-53 must describe the sufferings of Israel, not their coming Messiah.

In The Suffering Messiah (3 of 5), Pastor David shows us how Isaiah 53 speaks of a dying and rising servant that can only be describing the passion of one man, Jesus of Nazareth.
