"He is despised and rejected of men;
a man of sorrows and acquainted with grief:
and we hid as it were our faces from him;
he was despised, and we esteemed him not.
Surely he hath borne our griefs,
and carried our sorrows;
yet we did esteem him stricken,
smitten of God, and afflicted.
But he was wounded for our transgressions,
he was bruised for our iniquities:
the chastisement of our peace was upon him;
and with his stripes we are healed.
All we like sheep have gone astray;
we have turned every one to his own way;
and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all."
~ Isaiah 53:3-6 ~
This prophecy was written about our Lord Jesus Christ
approximately 700 years prior to His birth.
It describes perfectly what He did for His people
when He suffered and died on the Cross.
This Good Friday may we rejoice in HIM!
