Isaiah 53 Commentary

Background on Isaiah 53

In this section when mention is made of Isaiah 53, the reader should understand that this includes Isaiah 52:13-15 as these passages compose an integral part of this fourth "Servant Song" in Isaiah. As noted the chapter breaks are not inspired and this is clearly a poor chapter break.

Messiah - Anointed One

MESSIAH THE ANOINTED ONE: Webster says Messiah is a title given to “the promised Deliverer of the Jewish nation prophesied in the Hebrew Bible.” Messiah is derived from the Hebrew word mashiach which means “anointed one” and which corresponds to the NT title of “Christ” (Christos = anointed one).
