  • Has someone ever paid a debt for you?  How did you feel?  How did you respond to that person?  Was it a positive or negative experience?

Going Deeper and Applying

Isaiah 53:4-6 –

4Think about it:  He picked up our sickness; He toted our broken pieces;

Our response:  He’s a freak!  Attacked by God and overloaded!

5He was wounded for our boundary violations; He was broken to pieces for our dirty lives.

The discipline required for peace – it went against him.  And by his stripes healing came to us.

6All of us are like a bunch of wandering sheep.  Everyone scatters his own way;

The LORD put on him the guilt burden of us all. – translation by WCS.

 

  • Read Isaiah 53:4
  • The servant voluntarily picks up our pain and our broken pieces.  What does this tell you about Jesus?
  • Have you ever rejected someone who did something good for you?  Why?  Why do you think people still think Jesus is a freak?  Why do we think his teachings are over the top?
  • Read Isaiah 53:5
  • Did you ever have to take a punishment someone else deserved?  How did you feel about that?
  • This verse makes the point that we cannot find peace with God on our own.  We cannot achieve the spiritual healing we need by ourselves.  How would you explain to someone why we cannot be made right with God on our own?
  • Read Isaiah 53:6
  • How have you seen people scatter rather than take responsibility for their lives? 
  • Jesus paying the price for our sins is known as atonement.  Imagine for a moment that you are Jesus.  Which sins do you think would the hardest to take on?  Why?  What does it say about Jesus that he took on the guilt of those sins?  What does it teach you about the power of the purity of God?
  • What does it say to you that these verses were written hundreds of years before Jesus lived?  How does this shape your view of the Bible?
