Sermon: Crushed For Our Iniquities

Isaiah is quoted more than twice as much as any other major prophet and more than all of the minor prophets combined. Because of the abundant use that New Testament writers make of Isaiah, some have sought to attribute to Isaiah the structure and development of New Testament thought and doctrine. This is saying too much, as we shall see, for the determining factor is always the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. None the less, Isaiah served as a major source book for first century Christians, particularly in the latter part of the first century. Isaiah and the Earliest Sermons The earliest glimpse available to the thought and practice of the first century church is to be found in its preaching kerygma.

Besides the addition of the vowel pointings, other changes have occurred in the Hebrew text after making copies of copies. One of the more dramatic changes is the accidental removal of whole verses. A portion of Psalm from the Aleppo Codex Psalm is an acrostic psalm where each verse begins with the next letter of the Hebrew alphabet. In the Aleppo Codex the first verse begins with the letter aleph, the second with the beyt, the third with the gimel, and so on.

This is why Psalm The King James Version was written prior to the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls, but the Revised Standard Version, and other modern versions, were written afterward and often incorporate what has been found in the Dead Sea Scrolls. Ten of these letters are simply a matter of spelling, which does not affect the sense. Four more letters are minor stylistic changes, such as conjunctions. The three remaining letters comprise the word LIGHT, which is added in verse 11 and which does not affect the meaning greatly.

Isaiah 53 Commentary

I have tried to show him that the prophecies of Isaiah 53 were fulfilled by Jesus. How would one respond to this? But such was the case with their ancestors as well cf. That adds up to forty-one personal pronouns in a dozen verses that pertain to the main subject of the prophecy. What About the Plural Reference to the Death? Here is the passage in full:

John quotes Isaiah (and this also says the fact that Isaiah 53 is a prophecy about the Messiah) to substantiate the fact that the Jews did not respond to the ministry of the Lord Jesus at His First Coming.

This is the rhetorical question concerning the prophesy of the Messiah or the Anointed one coming to Israel, and how the people would not believe on Him. It is asked, “who hath believed our Report” or the News that is heard. The question is to illustrate that when Messiah came, the people would not believe [‘aman] or give credence to the announcement or news of His arrival. They simply would not believe this is the Christ!

And exactly as this scripture prophesied, the people would not believe when the Messiah arrived. In fact, this verse of Isaiah was confirmed as fulfilled in, John It was Jesus whom the prophesy spoke of, and though the Good News, or report was made that Messiah had come, with all miracles confirming, still they would not believe it. That is to say, except those to whom the “arm of the Lord” had been revealed. For example, in verses such as, Isaiah Therefore His Arm brought Salvation unto Him: Again, we read in, Deuteronomy 5: Art Thou not it that hath cut Rahab, and wounded the dragons?

In other words, it was by the Lord’s own strength and power that it was done. It was His hand that did it!

The majesty, holiness and glory of the Lord took possession of his spirit and, at the same time, he gained a new awareness of human pettiness and sinfulness. Only the purifying coal of the seraphim could cleanse his lips and prepare him for acceptance of the call: During this long ministry, the prophet returned again and again to the same themes, and there are indications that he may have sometimes re-edited his older prophecies to fit new occasions.

But the old intrigues began again, and the king was sorely tempted to join with neighboring states in an alliance sponsored by Egypt against Assyria.

History[ edit ] No one knows for certain the origins of reading the haftarah, but several theories have been put forth. The most common explanation, accepted by some traditional Jewish authorities is that in BCE, when the Jews were under the rule of the Seleucid king Antiochus IV Epiphanes , they were forbidden from reading the Torah and made do with a substitute.

When they were again able to read the Torah, they kept reading the haftarah as well. However this theory was not articulated before the 14th century, when it was suggested by Rabbi David Abudirham , [9] but this explanation has several weaknesses.

What is the Deutero-Isaiah theory? Was the Book of Isaiah written by multiple Isaiahs?

In fact, they go so far as to explain the fulfilled prophecies in these books by re-dating them to after the events occurred! Supposedly, Isaiah himself wrote only the first 39 chapters, leaving one of his students to write the second part chapters 40—66 sometime after the Babylonian captivity started after BC. The first section tells of numerous stories of Isaiah, especially his dealings with kings and others in Jerusalem. The theory goes on to say that the style and language of Isaiah 40—55 seem to be quite different from the earlier chapters.

What is so interesting about this argument is that it is also promulgated by the authors who support one author for the book! One contention is that specific references to Cyrus began with the experiences of the exiles in Babylon. This last argument is supposedly the strongest. It claims the second part of the second part of Isaiah was written later because only a later date can explain the accuracy of the prophecy.

Their conclusions include the similarity of writing styles in both sections, the consistent use of the same words throughout, and the familiarity of the author with Israel, but not Babylon.
