ISAIAH 53: JESUS IS NOT THE SUFFERING SERVANT – Part 9

Continued from Part 8

ISAIAH 53:5

53:5:  “But he was wounded as a result of our transgressions, he was crushed as a result of our iniquities.” 

Christian renderings of the Hebrew text attempt to convey the message that the servant vicariously took upon himself the sins of the people, and this caused him, and not them, to suffer the consequences.
