(part 2)

North Seattle Bible Students Convention

March 30, 2008


He was maltreated, yet he was submissive. He did not open his mouth; like a sheep led to slaughter, like a ewe, dumb before those who shear her; he did not open his mouth. Isaiah 53:7 (Tanakh-JPS)


Isaiah 53:7 (Tanakh-JPS) his mouth; like a sheep led to slaughter, like a ewe, dumb before those who shear her; he did not open his mouth.

…maltreated,yet…submissive.


Isaiah 53:7 (Tanakh-JPS) - He was maltreated, yet he was submissive...

  • Jesus was treated unjustly

    • Illegal Arrests

    • Illegal Hearings

    • Illegal Assaults

    • False Witnesses

    • Conspiracy

    • Bribery

    • Lying

  • Jesus submitted to the injustices


Isaiah 53:7 submissive...

… as a lamb…,

and as a sheep…he openethnot his mouth.


Isaiah 53:7 - ...yet he opened not his mouth.... submissive...

At times, Jesus spoke out firmly

  • Jesus spoke out against Annas

    The high priest [Annas] then asked Jesus of his disciples, and of his doctrine. Jesus answered him,I spake openly to the world; I ever taught in the synagogue, and in the temple, whither the Jews always resort; and in secret have I said nothing. Why askest thou me? ask them which heard me, what I have said unto them: behold, they know what I said.

    John 18:19,21


Isaiah 53:7 - ...yet he opened not his mouth.... submissive...

At other times, Jesus remained silent

And the high priest [Caiaphas] arose, and said unto him, Answerest thou nothing? what isitwhich these witness against thee? But Jesus held his peace…

Matthew 26:62,63


Isaiah 53:7 - ...yet he opened not his mouth.... submissive...

At other times, Jesus remained silent

Who can doubt that His brilliant mind, and His tongue, which "spake as never man spake," could quickly have brought such an argument for His defense that Caiaphas and the entire Sanhedrin would have trembled and would not have dared to condemn Him!

R5561:5


Isaiah 53:7 - ...yet he opened not his mouth.... submissive...

They that sit in the gatespeak against me; and I was the song of the drunkards.

Psalm 69:12


Isaiah 53:7 - ...yet he opened not his mouth.... submissive...

They that hate me without a causeare more than the hairs of mine head: they that would destroy me, being mine enemies wrongfully,are mighty: then I restored that which I took not away.

Psalm 69:4


Isaiah 53:7 - ...yet he opened not his mouth.... submissive...

In what way is Jesus is like “a silent lamb”?

Jesusopened not His mouth in the sense that He did not attempt to defend His life.

R5561:5


Isaiah 53:7 - ...yet he opened not his mouth.... submissive...

In what way is Jesus is like “a silent lamb”?

No man taketh it [my life] from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This commandment have I received of my Father.

John 10:18



By oppression and judgment he was taken away. And who can speak of his descendants? For he was cut off from the land of the living; for the transgression of my people he was stricken.Isaiah 53:8 (NIV)


Isaiah 53:8 (NIV) speak of his descendants? For he was cut off from the land of the living; for the transgression of my people he was stricken.

…oppressionand judgment…


Isaiah 53:8 (NIV) - By oppression and judgment he was taken away....

…oppressionand judgment…

Oppression – false indictment

Judgment – unjust condemnation


Isaiah 53:8 (NIV) away....

…who can speak ofhis [Jesus] descendants? For he was cut off from the land of the living;…


Isaiah 53:8 (NIV) - ...And who can speak of his descendants?...

  • Jesus died childless

    • No Descendents

    • No Posterity

    • No One To Carry On His Name


Isaiah 53:8 (NIV) - ...And who can speak of his descendants?...

Thy wifeshallbe as a fruitful vineby the sides of thine house: thy children like olive plants round about thy table. Behold, that thus shallthe man be blessed that feareth the LORD.

  • Not most Christians today


Isaiah 53:8 (NIV) - ...And who can speak of his descendants?...

Isaiah speaks of Jesus’ future posterity

For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his nameshall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father,The Prince of Peace.

Isaiah 9:6


Isaiah 53:8 (NIV) - ...And who can speak of his descendants?...

The underlying thought [of Isaiah] is that though in the dawn and vigor of his manhood he was cut off from life without any posterity to perpetuate his name, yet he is to have a numerous posterity; for God would raise him from the dead and he should be,… "a mighty God, an everlasting Father,a Prince of peace."

R1438:5


He was assigned a grave descendants?...with the wicked, and with the rich in his death, though he had done no violence, nor was any deceit in his mouth.Isaiah 53:9 (NIV)

...a grave with the wicked,

and

with the rich in his death,…

How were the bodies of vile criminals normally disposed of?

And they shall go forth, and look upon the carcasses of the men that have transgressed against me: for their worm shall not die, neither shall their fire be quenched; and they shall be an abhorringunto all flesh.

Isaiah 66:24


Isaiah 53:9 (NIV) - He was assigned a grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death,

The Jews had a custom, however, of refusing the usual burial to some of the very vilest criminals; and instead, they cast their dead bodies into this valley with the filth of the city, thus implying that such a one should be esteemed as of the offscourings of society,and that his memory should rot;and furthermore that in their estimation he had no hope of a resurrection…

Harvest Gleanings One – page 304


Isaiah 53:9 (NIV) - He was assigned a grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death,

Leaving Jesus’ body on the ground to be consumed would have maximized His reproach


Isaiah 53:9 (NIV) - He was assigned a grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death,

When the even was come, there came a rich man of Arimathaea, named Joseph, who also himself was Jesus' disciple: He went to Pilate, and begged the body of Jesus. Then Pilate commanded the body to be delivered. And when Joseph had taken the body, he wrapped it in a clean linen cloth, And laid it in his own new tomb,which he had hewn out in the rock: and he rolled a great stone to the door of the sepulcher, and departed.

All these things, apparently so unjust and so unreasonable and so contrary to anything mankind could have expected, Jehovah was pleased to permit.
