Isaiah 53 provides one of the clearest messianic messages of the Old Testament, and is often quoted in the New Testament as a prophecy of what would happen to Jesus. In Why Jesus Dies: A Meditation on Isaiah 53
R.T. Kendall carefully examines the chapter verse by verse tackling crucial subjects as:
- What makes faith, faith?
- How does one recognize God at work?
- Who really crucified Jesus?
- Is there healing in the atonement?
- Why did Jesus die?
- What are the results of Jesus' death?What does the blood of Jesus do for us, and what does the blood of Jesus do for God?
Kendall's study of Isaiah chapter 53 takes us directly to the heart of the Christian faith and persuasively answers many of our most critical questions.
