But he was pierced for our rebellion,Isaiah 53:5 NLT
crushed for our sins.
He was beaten so we could be whole.
He was whipped so we could be healed.
What always strikes me most about these words is that they were written around 500 years in advance of Christ’s birth by Isaiah.
I find the fact that Isaiah wrote about Christ in such detail in advance of Him coming and then for his prophecies to be fulfilled by Jesus, strengthens my faith immeasurably.
