He was wounded for our rebellious acts.
He was crushed for our sins.
He was punished so that we could have peace,
and we received healing from his wounds.
We have all strayed like sheep.
Each one of us has turned to go his own way,
and Yahweh has laid all our sins on him (Isaiah 53:5-6)
He was despised and rejected by people.
He was a man of sorrows, familiar with suffering.
He was despised like one from whom people turn their faces,
and we didn’t consider him to be worth anything.
He certainly has taken upon himself our suffering
and carried our sorrows,
but we thought that God had wounded him,
beat him, and punished him (Isaiah 53:3-4)
For God took the sinless Christ and poured into him our sins. Then, in exchange, he poured God’s righteousness into us! (II Corinthians 5:21)
There is one God and one Mediator between God and us—
the man Jesus, God’s Anointed,
Who gave His life as a ransom for all
so that we might have freedom (I Timothy 2:5-6)
My salvation and my glory depend on Elohim.
Elohim is the rock of my strength, my Machseh. (Psalm 62:7)
Live as citizens who reflect the Good News about Christ. Then, whether I come to see you or whether I stay away, I’ll hear all about you. I’ll hear that you are firmly united in spirit, united in fighting for the faith that the Good News brings. So don’t let your opponents intimidate you in any way. This is God’s way of showing them that they will be destroyed and that you will be saved. God has given you the privilege not only to believe in Christ but also to suffer for him. You are involved in the same struggle that you saw me having. Now you hear that I’m still involved in it (Philippians 1:27-30)
The payment for sin is death, but the gift that God freely gives is everlasting life found in Christ Jesus our Lord(Romans 6:23)
