<+>'Divine Victim<+>'

Divine Victim
We have reached the "golden love" of the Old Testament.

Inhuman suffering servant of the Lord and his exaltation pronounced maximum astonishment to all who hear the message. The biggest issue is not the emotion expressed. The people and government are caught in an unexpressed emotion of amazement and extreme people and kings to tremble mute!

Can you imagine anything that could have such an effect on humankind?

In the last part of Chapter 52, we saw large movements away from the suffering of the Servant of God (52:13-15). The Hebrew prophet was saved from suffering severe Details for this chapter. Is filled with amazement and horror. "The wages of sin is death." In fact, the "message" is so horrified that he is the answer to "Who has believed our ad? The message seemed so incomprehensible that no one will believe when I heard. The answer to the implied question is "No, nobody."

The surprise of the victim to the message of God (53:1).

The truth is communicated here is beyond anything in the Old Testament and has never been expressed before this passage. That's why this message is so frightening to people. The Prophet under guidance of the Holy Spirit communicates God's revelation about the suffering servant.

"Who has believed our ad? And who has spoken on the arm of the LORD?"

Isaiah expresses dismay at the response of people to notice the humiliation and extreme exaltation of the Messiah. Isaiah 6:9 It reminds us of the hardness of the hearts of listeners. Nothing will have changed to today after becoming the centuries.

This verse reminds us of the response of a Jewish rabbi when he spoke the same message. "And in discussing the synagogue each day of rest, and persuaded Jews and Greeks." In Corinth (Acts 18:4). Paul was devoted entirely to "bear witness to the Jews that Jesus was the Messiah" (v. 5). ¡ "They resisted and blasphemed, he shook his clothes and told them:" But they oppose and blaspheme, they said, shaking dresses: Your blood is on your own head, I clean, I'll go now to gentiles. "(v. 6). This is not an isolated case of rejection of the message of humiliation and the exaltation of the servant of God. Even Paul had to be pulled to the ground before he was handed over to Christ (Acts 9) .

The message

The "message" is "heard something," ie, the message of the prophet. Which led the Kings has become desu what they heard. When the truth could not say a word, they were dumb (52:15). The message was the exaltation of the servant of God from a state of deep humiliation tremendous. The apostle John tells us that Isaiah was referring to Christ when he said these words: "Isaiah said this when he saw his glory and spoke about him." (John 2:41). In a context where John tells us that Jesus taught about his death and resurrection is citing Isaiah 53:1 reminds its readers that the hostility and rejection of the servant. They rejected the warning or the message of Christ. He "went out and hid them" (12:36). He recalls, "that the words of Isaiah might be fulfilled" (v. 38). John then quotes Isaiah 6:10 which speaks of the hardening of the heart.

Nobody will believe the announcement of the "strong arm of the Lord" that manages to rescue his people through a servant suffered.

The Apostle Paul cites a verse in the context of publishing an invitation to believe in Christ for salvation in Romans 10:16. If you do not think you notice can not be saved. "Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of Christ" (v. 17).

The warning was prophetic of the humiliation and the exaltation of Christ that took us by surprise. Were dominated by the message.

Who is the spokesperson in Isaiah 53:1? Are the kings inside (52:15), or the Israelis who speak in hindsight, the prophet, or praise the Jews and Gentiles from the people that make up a confession through the prophet, or the Jewish remnant regretting the fact that so just think?

In the Gospel of John introduces the question, "to fulfill the word of the prophet Isaiah, who said:" Lord, who has believed our ad? Who has sent down the arm of the Lord? In this case, the prophet was the one who made the question (John 12:38).

H. C. Leupold is a powerful approach to the identity of the spokesperson is worthy of mention here. In these verses we hear seems to happen a portion of the beliefs of the nation while discussing the tragic deaths that occurred in their midst, the death of the servant of the Lord. Lucas has in Luke (24:13 ff) where the two disciples on the road to Emmaus discussing the recent events would be a good parallel to what we offer our chapter. To speak well, you seem to hear the two disciples to stand on a street corner in Jerusalem talking about things that happened Friday in a better penetration of light that came after Pentecost. Especially expressed his astonishment at the complete misunderstanding that they were guilty in view of the remarkable figure appeared as the great victim in their midst. Who believed that reliable witnesses spoke of him, especially their claims to divine Son? The first reaction was disbelief in the nation. overall. .. What you say here is a confession is almost penitent. The second question leads to the point more strongly. May the Lord was working and using his divine what happened on Golgotha and that was never realized in their minds. Still marvel as reflected by this blindness. "(HC Leupold, Exposition of Isaiah, pp. 225-26).

Juan R. Sampey said correctly, "the use of the new testament of this great prophecy of Jesus is one of the words as originally spoken of Israel as a nation, but a recognition of the fact that the Prophet advance painted a portrait of Jesus Christ which is the original .

What would be the reception of Jesus if he walked by our synagogues and churches today? How would receive his message if he was coming into our towns and villages in which we live? Are things really have changed?

"To whom has the arm of the LORD revealed?"

The audience refused to believe in the almighty power of God to achieve his eternal purpose of redemption of Israel through his servant. The arm of God is a person on his omnipotent power. When you believe in the warning is clear that there has been the power of God. This is true when we believe the message of salvation by grace alone and faith alone in Christ alone for salvation (Romans 10:9-17). Only God can save. It is their power in the action unless we believe in Christ. See Isaiah 40:10-11, 48:14, 51:5, 63:5.

Unless God demonstrates his power of salvation will never be saved. A spiritual birth must occur to achieve our salvation. Nobody can be saved unless God is at work deep into your inner being to bring a spiritual birth in their lives. He makes it through the message of his word. That is the discussion of Paul in Romans chapter ten.

Can God do what he set out to do? Who will believe the message of redemption powerful? Jesus Christ died for our sins. That's omnipotent power of God at work to save a lost world.

The arm of the LORD is the omnipotence to work in the rescue of Israel. God is not an amputee, the "arm of the Lord" is a person - the Lord Jesus Christ. He has carried the eternal purpose of God. The arm of the Lord shall be revealed in its operation of the magnificent person and work of Jesus Christ. From the throne of God governs the universe. When he returns in his second coming we will see the manifestation of the power of the Lord in all its power and glory (Philippians 2:8-11).

Attitudes towards the victim of God (53:2)

"Up front which renew it, and as a result of dry land, there appears in him, nor beauty, you'll see, but not appealing to you want."

The Hebrew prophet speaks of the servant's life at the edge of the tomb. The arm of God "is manifested in the whole course of his life. Growth as a sapling out of the dry soil is the revelation of the power of a sovereign God.

The origin of the humble servant (v. 2)

"In the mind of the prophet," notes E. J. Young, "what he represents is so alive and sure that he is set to occur on as if it were already happening. What is certain is that the prophet is not giving a speech to someone who has lived on the land before time of the prophet. "

"He came before him" refers to the coming of the servant on earth. His appearance among men was not "in the dazzling splendor of full maturity and daring achievement." There was nothing about his appearance that would attract a great thing. However, he was precious in the sight of God. He did everything with the idea of pandering to his Father (John 5:19-20). He lived his life in the power of God and according to his will. He had the attention of God. No person, except the Lord Jesus Christ, has never lived every minute of her life under complete control of the Spirit of God. He was under the watchful eye of God.

Moreover, the servant grew up under conditions of "simplicity" and "adversity." Moreover, as we put the issue of a contemporary of Jesus, "perhaps something good can come out of Nazareth?"

People saw the servant as a "mere breeding," or a "shoot soft or twig growing from an old dead trunk. The farmers cut the twigs and soft cast to one side. Is a general statement of the humility of the servant and the rejection of the people.

Is this the illusion of Isaiah 11:1? The shoots can grow up to be giant trees. ¿Isaiah has in mind of David's dynasty fall? There is a close connection between David and the Messiah. Even Jesus' disciples had trouble accepting the idea. The suffering servant is the Messiah, the Savior-King, the dynasty of David expected "(Engnell).

He is "a root out of dry ground" (v. 2b). Why, the servant looked and decided that there was nothing left of him. The dry soil could relate to the conditions and the fund in which the humble servant should appear. " He came in wretched conditions of poverty, a humble Nazarene. A root in dry ground would be a struggle to survive. People do not compare to the cedars of Lebanon. He had a humble birth and life in Galilee of the Gentiles. There is no way to glory for the men boasted to him. People's attitude was such that she could not find any beauty in Him people made ...
