THE PERSON DESCRIBED BELOW IS WANTED. THIS DESCRIPTION WAS PROVIDED BY THE GREAT JEWISH PROPHET ISAIAH 2700 YEARS AGO
WHO hath believed our message? And to whom hath the arm of Jehovah been revealed? For he grew up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him. He was despised, and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and as one from whom men hide their face 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 Jehovah hath laid on him the iniquity of us all. He was oppressed, yet when he was afflicted he opened not his mouth; as a lamb that is led to the slaughter, and as a sheep that before its shearers is dumb, so he opened not his mouth. By oppression and judgment he was taken away; and as for his generation, who among them considered that he was cut off out of the land of the living for the transgression of my people to whom the stroke was due? And they made his grave with the wicked, and with a rich man in his death; although he had done no violence, neither was any deceit in his mouth. Yet it pleased Jehovah to bruise him; he hath put him to grief: when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see his seed, he shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of Jehovah shall prosper in his hand. He shall see of the travail of his soul, and shall be satisfied: by the knowledge of himself shall my righteous servant justify many; and he shall bear their iniquities. Therefore will I divide him a portion with the great, and he shall divide the spoil with the strong; because he poured out his soul unto death, and was numbered with the transgressors: yet he bare the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.
For a reading exploration and a revelation! The two books illustrated below have live links to web pages where you can order each book. Both are vital resources that will explain how the Isaiah 53 text is vital to the Jewish understanding of the identity of their Messiah. The historical context, the key ways the Scriptures have been handled over time, are all important to a clear understanding ... and once you see it clearly ... the WANTED poster becomes an important way to grab attention and reveal something as important as the Scriptures themselves.
"Isaiah 53 Explained" is written to a general reading audience and puts a historical and cultural context to how we can understand the ancient prophet's writing. Last we knew free copies of this book were avaialble, just click on the book cover in the box on the right and see how you can obtain a copy.
The text in "Answering Jewish Objections to Jesus" may seem more confrontational, but this volume is written by a Jewish scholar who goes to great lengths to substantiate the evidence, interpretations, and historical problems that have blocked clarity in understanding biblical texts. And this is done in an objective sense with all sources and resources identified for further examination by the reader.
In the end, Isaiah provides a very exact identification of Yeshua as the Jewish Messiah. Frankly, even today, the implications of this recognition are astounding and as more members of the Jewish and scholarship community come to an open, global recognition of this fact, the closer we come to seeing Messiah again. Don't believe us ... read the biblical text itself and explore further ... and then YOU will be handing out WANTED posters yourself! Bless you and those who explore further into what the WindowView has to show all of us!
