Isaiah 53 - The Promise that was Clearly Fulfilled by Jesus

Bob Barney
Bob Bible

The Old Testament scripture of Isaiah 53 is a chapter of the Bible you will not hear read aloud very often in Jewish synagogues. What is so special about this prophecy is that it is probably the most spine-chilling proof of the divinity and reality of Jesus Christ! Even more spectacular is that the prophet Isaiah had written this about six hundred years before Jesus Christ came as a man in the flesh.  The Jewish people believe differently about a messiah. They have not and do not believe their own Bible that clearly shows a Messiah prophesy that was fulfilled by Jesus alone. 

The God of the Old Testament ~ Who do you believe it to be?

Let us take a look into some of the names of God in the Bible.

Jesus Christ is 'the LORD' or 'Yahweh' (Jehovah) of the Old Testament and it was Jesus Christ Himself, the One of the Godhead referred to as Elohim (in Hebrew) who spoke, "Let there be Light" and who actually did in fact, make the earth! (John 1)
It is Jesus who is the God of the Old Testament as you will come to see today as we study Isaiah, yet we have been led to believe it is Father God. What I am saying is, yes, the God who ordered and personally killed the firstborn of Egypt, was Jesus. The God who wrote the 10 Commandments with His own finger, was Jesus. And the God who ordered the Sabbath breaker to be killed, WAS JESUS!
The Plain simple Truth is that nearly every mention of God in the Old Testament is referring to Jesus Christ and NOT God, the Father. 

It is about time when we read the pages of the Bible to really see what is being said and believe the truth of its simple message.

This is an excerpt from The Plain Truth's, The Holy Bible in its Original Order ~ God's Word in Red, Bible. 

Isaiah 53 THE SUFFERING CHRIST:  It is about the suffering Christ.

1 Who has believed our message? To whom has the LORD (Jesus)' s power been revealed?

                The answer to this is Christians. JOHN 12: 38 Romans 10: 16

2 He grew up in His presence like a tender green shoot, sprouting from a root in dry ground.

Believe it or not, there was nothing beautiful or majestic about His appearance, nothing to attract us to Him. Jesus was ordinary looking! In fact, people could not pick him out in a crowd. Even though he taught every day in the Temple, the High Priest needed Judas to point Jesus out to the soldiers as he was that ordinary looking!

3 He was despised and rejected. A man of sorrows, familiar with suffering. He was despised like one from whom people turn their faces, and we didn't consider Him to be worth anything.

                The Jews of today claim their Messiah would come as a king. This shows that he was to come like Jesus did! Adam hid his face from Jesus, so did the Jews, and so do many today! Matthew 27: 30.  Hebrews 4:15, John 1: 10. Isaiah vs 4 He certainly has taken upon himself our suffering and carried our sorrows, but we thought that God (Elohim) had wounded Him, beat Him, and punished Him. The Jews believed him to be a sinner, so they beat him and killed him. Matthew 8: 17, 1 Peter 2: 24.

Verse 5 He was pierced for our lawlessness. He was crushed for our sins. He was punished so that we could have peace. He was whipped, and {by His wounds} we were healed!

                He was killed because of sin. Sin is the breaking of the Law! Christ did not come to take away the Law, but to take away the punishment for breaking the Law. The Law is still in force and always will be – we are freed from the PENALTY of sin. Romans 4: 25 1 Peter 2: 24 - a bodily wound; not mere mental sorrow; but literally, "pierced" as I have used here; minutely appropriate to Messiah, whose hands, feet, and side were pierced (Psalms 22: 16). The Margin, wrongly, (from a Hebrew root), translates as, "tormented."

6 We have all strayed like sheep. Each one of us has turned to go his own way, and the LORD(Jesus) has laid all our sins on Him.

                We are all sinners (1 John). In fact, if we say we have no sin, we are liars, and the truth is not in us! Why is there suffering today? This is the answer. We have all gone our own way, a way opposite of God's Way (HIS LAW). And death and sorrow are our reward! Christ came to pay off this debt-with His blood. In 2 Corinthians 5: 21 ; He was not merely a sin offering (which would  destroy the antithesis to "righteousness"), but "sin for us"; sin itself vicariously; the representative of the aggregate sin of all mankind; not sins in the plural, for the "sin" of the world is one (Romans 5: 16 Romans 5: 17); thus, we are made not merely righteous, but righteousness, even "the righteousness of God." The innocent was punished as if guilty, that the guilty might be rewarded as if innocent. This verse could be said of no mere martyr.


7 He was abused and punished, yet He never said a word! He was led like a lamb to the slaughter. He was like a sheep that is silent when its wool is cut off.

                He is our Passover lamb! (John 19: 9) 8 He was arrested, taken away, and judged. Who would have thought that He would be removed from the world? He was killed because of my people's sins.    Matthew 27: 11-25 removed from the world-- He is in Heaven Acts 8: 33; translate as the Septuagint: "In His humiliation His judgment (legal trial) was taken away "; the virtual sense of the Hebrew as rendered by LOWTH and sanctioned by the inspired writer of Acts; He was treated as one so mean that a fair trial was denied Him (Matthew 26: 59 14: 55-59). HORSLEY translates, "After condemnation and judgment He was accepted."

8 He was arrested, taken away, and judged. Who would have thought that He would be removed from the world? He was killed because of my people's sins.

9 He was laid in a tomb like a criminal. He was put there with the rich when He died, although He had done nothing violent and had never spoken a lie.

                Christ fulfilled this by dying (by crucifying Him with two thieves, Matthew 27: 38) and being buried in a rich man's unused tomb; his uncle, two rich men honored Him at His death, Joseph of  Arimathæa. Christ never lied, only truth was in Him. The Devil is a liar, and no truth is in him.

10 Yet it pleased the LORD (Jesus) to punish Him with suffering. When YOU {God the father} make His life a sacrifice for our wrongdoings, He will have a multitude of children, many heirs. The will of the LORD will succeed through Him.

                They were voluntarily borne by Messiah, in order that thereby He might "do Jehovah's will" (John 6: 38, Hebrews 10: 7 Hebrews 10: 9), as to man's redemption; so, at the end of the verse, "the pleasure of the LORD shall prosper in His hand." The Margin rightly makes the prophet in the name of Yahweh Himself to speak in this verse.

11 When He sees all that is accomplished by His anguish, He will be satisfied. And because of what He has experienced, my righteous servant will make it possible for many to be counted righteous, for He will bear all their sins.

            Yahweh (The Lord Jesus) is still speaking according to Jamieson. My . . . servant--Messiah (Isaiah 42: 1, 52: 13). 12 So I will give Him a share among the mighty, and He will divide the prize with the strong, because He poured out His life (soul -nephesh) in death and He was counted with the sinners. He carried the sins of many. He intercedes for those who are lawless {sinners}. IN DEATH-- Jesus died, just as we do. His soul DIED! The word here in Hebrew is nephesh, translated “soul” by the KJV. The same word used in Genesis chapter 1 “and man became a living soul- nephesh. The best translation for nephesh is a living being - and when speaking of death, the best translation is dead being, or as I have translated this here “his life in death.” If not for the power of the FATHER and the resurrection, Christ would still be in the grave awaiting the resurrection of the dead. We see later that ONLY Christ, thus far, has been “born again,” or resurrected from the dead. All of the rest of mankind are still in their graves sleeping!

12 I will give Him the honors of a victorious soldier, because He exposed himself to death.  He was counted among the rebels.   He bore the sins of many and interceded for {us) rebels.

See 1 Corinthians 15. Isaiah 53 plainly speaks of the suffering Messiah – and only Jesus Christ fulfilled this prophecy - HE IS OUR LORD and SAVIOR.
