2020 THEME: TRUTH

SERIES: More Than a Man

TITLE: Why?

Scripture:  Isaiah 52:13-53:12

 

I.    THE CERTAINTY OF HIS DEATH          

Did Jesus really die? Some facts:

1. Jesus repeatedly said this would happen.
2. Pilate delivered Him to be crucified.
3. The Romans designed crucifixion to make sure the person was dead.
4. The Romans scourged Jesus within an inch of his life.
5. The centurion at the cross pronounced him dead.
6. They put Him in a tomb guarded by centurions.

 

II.   THE SIGNIFICANCE OF HIS DEATH              

Please turn to Acts 8 for an important exchange.

3 highlights found in our Scripture passage:

1) 52:13-15- Revealed Israel’s Messiah and King would both (suffer and be exalted).
2) 53: 4-6- Graphic description of Jesus’ suffering and death.  You are reading about a doctrine called (penal substitution). It is a fancy way of saying, “Jesus paid the penalty for our sin.”

            • The wrong perception in this verse: “by his stripes we are healed.”

 

3) 53: 7-10- Jesus was (submissive) to His Father in His death.

            • Check out I P.2:21b-24.
