Is Isaiah 53 'The Suffering Servant' a prophecy about Jesus?



      

Isaiah 53:1 - 12

ESV - 1 Who has believed what he has heard from us? And to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed? 2 For he grew up before him like a young plant, and like a root out of dry ground; he had no form or majesty that we should look at him, and no beauty that we should desire him.

First, see the big picture:

The Subject to Isaiah 53
‘He began at the same Scripture and preached unto him Jesus’ Acts 8:35

1 The Sensitive One—a tender plant Isaiah 53:2 
This is the surprising part, that the individual, not the nation, is so vulnerable--"a tender shoot... a root out of dry ground."
2 The Sorrowing One—a Man of sorrows Isaiah 53:3

3 The Smitten One—smitten of God Isaiah 53:4
4 The Suffering One—He was wounded Isaiah 53:5
5 The Sin-bearing One—the Lord hath laid on Him Isaiah 53:6
6 The Silent One—He opened not His mouth Isaiah 53:7

He did not protest at His trials, but was silent in His defense and was slaughtered similar to the manner of a lamb led to death...

7 The Stricken One—the stroke was upon Him Isaiah 53:8 This is Jesus who was stricken, not the nation Israel. For how could Israel die for the sins of Israel? No, this is Christ dying for others' sins.
8 The Sincere One—No deceit in His mouth Isaiah 53:9
9 The Submissive One—It pleased the Lord to bruise Him Isaiah 53:10
10 The Satisfied One—He shall be satisfied Isaiah 53:11
11 The Successful One—He shall divide the spoil Isaiah 53:12


Can you tell that I like alliteration?
