Approaching Holy Week

Approaching Holy Week

The Old Testament prophet, Isaiah, predicted Jesus’ sacrificial suffering and death more than 700 years before it happened.

He was despised and rejected by mankind,
a man of suffering, and familiar with pain.

But he was pierced for our transgressions,
he was crushed for our iniquities;
the punishment that brought us peace was on him,
and by his wounds we are healed.

We all, like sheep, have gone astray,
each of us has turned to our own way;
and the Lord has laid on him
the iniquity of us all.

Yet it was the Lord’s will to crush him and cause him to suffer…
After he has suffered,
he will see the light of life and be satisfied…

For he bore the sin of many,
and made intercession for the transgressors.

                                                 Isaiah 53:3,5-6,10-12
