(39) • Where does the prophecy in 42 come true? • How is 43 pointing to Christ? • Who is the odd choice that the Lord makes to be His “anointed”? (45) • There is no peace for whom in 48? • In what ways does 49 appear to be speaking of Jesus?
The Songs of the Sufferer
Isaiah 53 is spoken almost every Good Friday service, why do you think that is? Why does God not hear the prayers of the house of Jacob? (58)
One of the most notable prophecies in the book of Isaiah is the songs of the sufferer. These four songs seem to point directly to the suffering that Jesus Christ endured on our behalf so that we could receive atonement through His suffering. The four songs are found in four chapters of Isaiah: 42, 49, 50, and 53. The first song: Isaiah 42:1-9 In this song, the Sufferer is seen as a judge who brings about justice on earth. The second song: Isaiah 49:1-13 In this song, the Sufferer is a prophet who speaks also of His existence before birth. The third song: Isaiah 50:4-9 This song shows the seeming persecution and abandonment of the Sufferer yet refusal for vindication of these ills. Additionally, these passages seem to point to another who will point to the Sufferer. The fourth song: Isaiah 53:1-11 This fourth song is by far the darkest of all of the songs. Additionally, it is also contains speech that is not of the Sufferer Himself, but rather of Yahweh speaking about the Sufferer.
