Do you think this chapter refers to Jesus?

That's an interesting question... I know that some rabbis believe it's about Israel

But I am convinced that interpretation doesn't work... It certainly sounds like it's talking about Jesus

You need to really look at the words of the text to see what the prophet is talking about...how can it be Israel - the words point to person?

Yes, There are too many problems with it being Israel....how is Israel,"cut of from the land of the living"? And they certainly opened their mouth when oppressed...and they were violent... And how did their own punishment bring them peace? it makes the most sense for it to be speaking of the Messiah

All of the Glory is yours, Lord. Thank You that the time has come to open their eyes. Bring all of Your sheep into the pen at the appointed time.

Sad but true. Even His own people rejected Him. But on the light of this many jews will come to KNOW JESUS CHRIST as the TRUE MESSIAH. SAVIOUR OF BOTH JEWS AND GENTILES, US.

The Jewish have been trained to reject just as it says in that book, even though taken out during his crucifixion and resurrection. It showed such solid proof. My psychologist is a kind Jewish. I began seeing her after ex beat me and I survived many overdoses while searching for Christ, so it was something I wanted to talk about, my faith-Christ's saving me. At first she was very uncomfortable with that. But over the years and 2 more brain surgeries she found a great way, and she is just awesome at it. Pretty awesome to have that connection with her. Bless their hearts! ????

What a great evangelistic tool for Orthodox Jews, even great for the gentiles who are all non-Jewish people, most of us, take time to check this out for those who already believe and to those who don't, I pray a blessing to those who'll take the time to watch this, I pray the eyes and the ears of their hearts will be open wide and the Holy Spirit will Speak gently yet powerfully to those who will hear and will fill them up with the Love and Peace and Comfort that can only and truly come from God, In JESUS Name I pray, Amen

Those words were written over 2700 years ago. Yet many people who read them today find that the words seem to jump off the page.

So good makes me cry and I'm getting on my knees now for myself and everyone to draw close and closer to Jesus

The chapter is packed with incredible drama, heroics and pathos. But many people find a personal challenge in these words that is interwoven with the questions: who is this person and what in the world was he doing?

All of the world are the same I pray that the shackles that separate the religions seemingly will be totally broken by the power of the love from the Almighty. We are all decent and corrupt bold yet fearful black but white amen amen amen praise the world please love love love forgive forgive to all I ve hurt or crooked sorry

One of my favorite verses in the test is verse 6. In this passage the prophet tells us that all of humanity shares the same fundamental problem that needs to be solved and that the servant of the Lord is the solution - and that common problem is sin. What are your thoughts about this passage?

All of us like sheep have gone astray,
Each of us has turned to his own way;
But the Lord has caused the iniquity of us all
To fall on Him.

I appreciate your comment and am wondering who you think the person is?

One might think the passage is obscure and irrelevant based on the fact that so many people are unfamiliar with it. That unfamiliarity in part stems from the fact that Isaiah 53 does not appear in the regular synagogue calendar readings.

Would this have a profound change in the interpretation of the Torah?
