Publisher's Summary

Written to help listeners better understand Jesus's life, death, and ultimate mission, this new book by well-known preacher John MacArthur looks at an important - yet often misunderstood - section of the Bible: Isaiah 53. Often hailed as one of the greatest chapters in the Bible, this passage foretells the crucifixion of Jesus, a critical event in God's ultimate plan for salvation. 

Explaining the prophetic words of Isaiah 53 verse by verse, MacArthur highlights important connections to the history of Israel and to the New Testament - ultimately showing us how these prophetic words to ancient Israel illuminate essential truths for our lives today.

Outstanding Exegesis

Clear, well-reasoned, thought-provoking, and devotional. The strength of John MacArthur's ministry is his ability to explain scripture with crystal clarity by using scripture in the truth of Sola Scriptura. This book is yet another example of why Dr MacArthur is the best Bible Expositor alive today.
Here you will find the Lord Jesus Christ, the Suffering Servant, in all His ineffable glory, described by the prophet Isaiah. Wholeheartedly recommended.

Excellent book

I have enjoyed several of John MacArthurs books and this one, like the others, doesn't disappoint. As well as Isa 53 he also gives an exposition of the kings around this time. Overall a worthwhile read.

Good book

Loved everything about this book except the last chapter. It answered many of the questions I’ve had about Isaiah 53 and other Old Testament passages about Christ in the old testament.

Excellent, Insightful, and God Glorifying

Excellent, Insightful, and God Glorifying. Could have done without scripture references in audio version, but I understand the goal of staying true to what is written in the book. It takes away from the flow of thought when listening. Still recommend via audio.

An amazing walk through Isaiah 52:13 - 53:12

This was an amazing walk through Isaiah 52:13 - 53:12! The powerful insight of how this Old Testament passage explains the "Cross of Jesus Christ" and the eminence Love that God has for us! This prophecy was foretold 700 years before Jesus died in such stunning detail that it will blow your mind! Dr. John MacArthur walks you through the passage and guides you through the rich history and theology of this passage with so much scripture! One can not help but know that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and that He (Jesus) went to the Cross fulfilling the prophesy. You are overwhelmed by the Love of God expressed in the short passage of scripture in knowing that God had a plan for our salvation!

Superb explanation of Isaiah 53 and its relevance

In depth, but understandable throughout. An excellent explanation of Isaiah 53 and what it means to both Jew and Christian. It pulls no punches on identifying sin and the sinner and the propitiation we have available.

Excellent resource from John MacArthur

this book, like so many other John MacArthur resources, was phenomenally well written. I especially loved the last chapter discussing the milieu in which Isaiah prophesied. So helpful.
