Dr. Liam Goligher, Senior Minister, preaching: The Gospel According to Isaiah: “Numbered with the Transgressors” based on Isaiah 53:10–12.

Sermon Summary:
Isaiah from 52:13 thru 53 is the fourth Servant Song, a prophetic revelation about the coming Servant-Messiah. Today focuses on the fifth and final stanza in 53:10-12. First and last, God the Father speaks. Verse 53:4-6 are the theological core. This Servant is given divine status by saying he “was high and lifted up and exalted”, but is done to death; he is sinless but carries sin to the grave, he dies a criminal but is buried with the rich. Now to stanza five. Yes, an innocent man was killed through a miscarriage of justice. Peter preaching at Pentecost implies there is much more going on than that: this Jesus, delivered up according to the definite plan and foreknowledge of God, you crucified and killed by the hands of lawless men. God himself provides the ‘full and sufficient sacrifice’ to fulfill the Mosaic laws. The sin offering had three purposes. Christ’s death on the cross fulfilled all three. No, not random, very purposeful. Here we see the love of the Father for us.But God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. The servant’s death was not final: three things happen after the Perfect Sacrifice is made. He is still at work for the Father and will close out history for his God. For he must reign until he has put all his enemies under his feet. God is not disappointed in his Righteous One. So the mysteries of this Servant Song are only explained after 700 years. Because these words were fulfilled, we can be confident the rest of God’s promises will be, too. Also based on Acts 2:23, Leviticus 5-7, Hebrews 12:2, Mark 10:45;Romans 5:19, Romans 5:8, 1 Cor. 15:25.
