Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe everything I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”

Humanity, We Have a PRoblem!
Isaiah 53

"Humanity, We Have a Problem!"

Isaiah 53

Isaiah 53 presents Jesus as a Suffering Servant:

1) A  Suffering Servant who is dispised and rejected

2) A Suffering Servant who submits as a substitute

3) A Suffering Servant who is exalted and victorious


Three Types of Suffering:

1) All sufferers are sinners - because you are a sinner, you suffer

2) Innocent people suffer - because we live in a fallen world

3) Some suffer vicariously - the innocent in place of the guilty


Characteristics of Sin:

1) Sin is universal - we all are sinners

2) Sin is stupid - it leads us away from God, it breaks our relationship with God, and it takes us away from God's heart

3) Sin separates us from God

4) Sin is selfish - we go our own way, trust in our own weakness


God's response to the problem was to lay it on Jesus - the problem was solved (vs 12).
