ISAIAH 53: JESUS IS NOT THE SUFFERING SERVANT – Part 27

ISAIAH 53:12

53:12:  “I will divide him a portion with the great, and he shall divide the spoil with the mighty”

There is a great divide between truth (Isaiah) and fiction (the New Testament).
To have or to have nothing that is the question.  What portion did Jesus allegedly have and when did he get it?  How is a Christian interpretation of “I will divide him a portion with the great, and he shall divide the spoil with the mighty,” where the servant receives “a portion with the great” to be reconciled with Daniel 9:26: 

Blood Atonement

Christians insist that blood sacrifice is a necessary prerequisite for the atonement of sin. These Christians believe that this is an open teaching of the Jewish Scriptures. Although there is no verse which explicitly says: “without blood there is no atonement” Christians still believe that the overall testimony of the Jewish Scriptures would lead one to this conclusion.

The Council of My Nation – Scripture – The Law of Moses

This one is tricky, because of the divergence of opinion amongst Jewish Christians on this subject. Many Jewish Christians consider themselves “free” from the Law of Moses, they believe that it no longer applies on a practical level. Others accept the binding nature of the Law of Moses, but accept only those laws explicitly written in the Five Books. Others yet accept the full body of the Law of Moses as defined by the living legacy of the Jewish nation.

Israel’s Relationship with God

It wasn’t always this easy to be a Jew in a Christian country. In the 21st century, the Church’s age-old desire for the soul of the Jew can only find expression in the realm of the discussion. One of the few weapons that remain in the arsenal of the missionary is the scriptural argument. This same weapon is readily turned against the missionary by the Jew who has studied the scriptures.

Psalm 110 – A Jewish Perspective

What is It?

In an attempt to prove the Divinity of the Messiah, Christians misquote Psalm 110:1 as, “The LORD said to my Lord, Sit at my right hand, until I make your enemies thy footstool,” and verse 4 stating, “You are a priest forever after the manner of Melchizedek.” Let us find out the Jewish perspective of Psalm 110 which is often misquoted by Christians to be in their favour.
