    GRAB YOUR BIBLES Isaiah 53:5-8
    ==============
    The Ethiopian eunuch’s passage: (part 2:) Details about the Cross!
    ==============
    LETS READ THE TEXT Isaiah 53:5-8
    ==============
    Simply reading the account of the Lord’s crucifixion in the Gospels:
    Doesn’t relate to us....the full scope of what happened to the Lord:
    ------------------------
    But Isaiah’s prophecy will help us to get a clearer picture!
    ==============
    V.5A “But”
    -A LITTLE REMINDER.....OF LAST WEEKS PASSAGE-
    (And the description...it gave of our Lord:)
    --------------------------------------------------
    In light of the low expectations...people had of Jesus:
    Today we are now going to see:
    All that He...was able to accomplish!
    ==============
    V.5B “he [was] wounded”
    -THE GREAT PRICE....OUR LORD PAID FOR US-
    (While being God’s Son:)
    ------------------------
    “wounded” Lit.(profaned, defiled, polluted, desecrated)
    --------------------------------------------------
    Simply reading the account of the crucifixion:
    Can not reveal to us what Jesus went through:
    ------------------------
    This Hebrew word translated “wounded”:
    Is also found in Leviticus.....
    See Leviticus 19:29
    “Do not prostitute thy daughter, to cause her to be a whore;
    lest the land fall to whoredom, and the land become full of wickedness.”

    The word.... “prostitute”
    This is just how defiled the Lord was on the cross!
    ==============
    V.5C “for our transgressions,”
    -A PARTICULAR KIND OF SIN....THAT THIS COVERED-
    (The sin of rebellion:)
    “transgressions” Lit.(Rebellion)
    --------------------------------------------------
    By the Lord being...profaned and defiled:
    We were forgiven for our rebellion!
    ==============
    V.5D “[he was] bruised”
    -PART OF SATAN’S PLAN....FOR OUR LORD’S CRUCIFIXION-
    (For the Lord....to be “demoralized”:)
    Of course...Satan didn’t know what was going to happen:
    --------------------
    “bruised” Lit.(Broken or Crushed)
    --------------------------------------------------
    Satan though that this would cause God:
    To turn His back on mankind...once & for all!
    ==============
    V.5E “for our iniquities:”
    -THE KINDS OF SINS...THAT CRUSHING THE LORD...COVERED-
    (The depravity of...sexual sins:)
    ------------------------
    “iniquities” Lit.(perverseness)
    --------------------------------------------------
    Therefore.....the “blood of Jesus”:
    Crushes.....this sinful desire in us!
    ==============
    V.5F “the chastisement of our peace [was] upon him;”
    -THE ONLY WAY....WE COULD HAVE PEACE WITH GOD-
    (Was for our sins....to be punished:)
    ------------------------
    And they were punished....in Jesus:
    --------------------------------------------------
    When these things...were done to Him:
    God counted them as....being done to us!
    ==============
    V.5G “and with his stripes we are healed.”
    -THE LORD’S....LITERAL SUBSTITUTION FOR US-
    (Because each of us....have an incurable disease:)
    ------------------------
    We are sinners:
    --------------------------------------------------
    And by the punishment inflicted upon the Lord:
    Our sin-sickness can be cured!
    ==============
    V.6A “All we like sheep have gone astray;”
    -GOD’S DESCRIPTION....OF WHAT SIN HAS DONE TO US-
    (We are like sheep:)
    Who are in need of a shepherd:
    --------------------------------------------------
    Because we are....foolish and stupid:
    And have turned our back on the LORD!
    ==============
    V.6B “we have turned every one to his own way;”
    -THE WRONG PLACE....TO LOOK FOR SOLUTIONS-
    (Ourselves:)
    ------------------------
    This is what got us into trouble in the first place:
    --------------------------------------------------
    Because of our sin...all of our solutions will fail!
    ==============
    V.6C “and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.”
    -THE LORD’S WORSE EXPERIENCE....AT THE CROSS-
    (Having our sin....placed upon Him:)
    --------------------------------------------------
    -THE WORSE PART....ABOUT HAVING OUR SINS LAID ON HIM-
    Worse than anything...Satan could have done:
    ------------------------
    It forced the Father.....to turn His back on Him!
    ==============
    V.7A “He was oppressed, and he was afflicted,”
    -THE ROUGH TREATMENT....OUR LORD SUFFERED-
    (Being pushed around...and made fun of:)
    --------------------------------------------------
    This normally....wouldn’t seem very bad:
    But it was being done....to “God’s Son”!
    ==============
    V.7C “yet he opened not his mouth:”
    -THE LORD’S QUIET RESPONSE.....TO ALL THIS BAD TREATMENT-
    (Not one complaint:)
    --------------------------------------------------
    Because He trusted......His Father’s will.
    ==============
    V.7D “he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter,”
    -THE LORD’S PASSIVE RESPONSE......THROUGH THIS WHOLE PROCESS-
    (Not trying to escape:)
    Or pleading for His life:
    --------------------------------------------------
    This even surprised...Pilate!
    ==============
    V.7E “and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth.”
    -THE LORD’S SUBMISSIVE RESPONSE....TO THIS EVENT-
    (He knew what was happening and why:)
    --------------------------------------------------
    Therefore...He voluntarily submitted to it!
    ==============
    V.8A “He was taken from prison and from judgment:”
    -THE SOLDIER’S RESPONSE....TO HIS COOPERATION-
    (They violently restrained Him:)
    After He had been condemned by Pilate!
    ------------------------
    “prison” Lit. (oppression)
    ==============
    V.8B “and who shall declare his generation?”
    -A QUESTION THE WORLD ASKS....IN LIGHT OF THIS DEFEAT-
    (Who would dare...to identify themselves with Him?)
    --------------------------------------------------
    This is the shame....of the cross!
    ==============
    V.8C “for he was cut off out of the land of the living:”
    -THE TRUE STATE....IN WHICH OUR LORD DIED-
    (Not ever....ceasing to exist:)
    None of us will do that:
    ----------------------
    But he was simply...leaving the land of the living!
    --------------------------------------------------
    This is how “God”...was able to die!
    ==============
    V.8D “for the transgression of my people was he stricken.”
    -THE ONE AND ONLY REASON...THIS HAPPEN TO HIM-
    (In order to.....fix our sin problem:)
    --------------------------------------------------
    To give each of us...an opportunity to be saved!
    ==============
