Martin Luther once said that Isaiah 53 'ought to be written on parchment of gold and lettered in diamonds.' If you read this book, you will see why!
Isaiah 53 is one of the most amazing chapters in the whole Bible. Although written some 800 years BC, it actually contains one of the clearest views of the Person and Work of Christ in all of the Scriptures. This ancient Old Testament prophecy gives a distilled New Testament theology.
Isaiah 53 directs us to the Cross of Christ and the Christ of the Cross. Its central theme is the sacrificial, substitutionary and saving death of the Lord Jesus Christ at Calvary, and the infinite blessings and benefits which accrue to the believer from this.
Isaiah is justly known as 'the evangelical prophet,' and Isaiah 53 encapsulates his ‘evangel.' Isaiah 53 is The Gospel According to Isaiah>/i>.
