December 21 – Isaiah 53:1-3

We are tracing the Advent theme through Isaiah.  The Good News is not complete with the nailed together mangers and stables of the Christmas pageants.  The story includes the nailed together cross, and the One nailed to it.

Isaiah 53:1-3

Who has believed our message

and to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed?

 He grew up before him like a tender shoot,

and like a root out of dry ground.

He had no beauty or majesty to attract us to him,

nothing in his appearance that we should desire him.

 He was despised and rejected by men,

a man of sorrows, and familiar with suffering.

Like one from whom men hide their faces

he was despised, and we esteemed him not.
