The Servant's Descent
Verse: Isaiah 53:7–53:9
The Song of the Servant Series, Part 5.
We see in this section that God's suffering servant (Jesus) conquered not by ferocity, but by humility. Jesus was not a victim, He was a volunteer, the ultimate example of submissive sovereignty. The torture of Jesus Christ is endured in silent submission. The crucifixion is attended by cruel indifference. Finally, the burial of Jesus Christ is distinguish by intended disgrace.
