The section of Isaiah that deals with the Messiah and His coming Kingdom. The prophecy itself is Messianic, as confirmed by New Testament Scripture : Philip identified this text as Messianic - Acts 8.32 ff Mark points back to Isaiah 53- Mark 15.27-28 Peter connected Jesus to Isaiah 53- 1 Peter 2.22 Isaiah is focusing on Jesus and His work in redeeming mankind from sin.
Isaiah 53.10 gives occasion for some to mischaracterize God. By identifying what they think are deficiencies in God ’ s character, some think they defeat the Biblical concept of a loving God. If the concept of a loving God is defeated, then the entire system built upon Him is flawed. “ Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise Him ; He has put Him to grief… ”
God did not take delight in pain of Jesus. How could such a being be called “ good ”? Does a father enjoy his child ’ s pain ?
