“He was pierced for our transgressions; he was crushed for our iniquities; upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace, and with his wounds we are healed” (Isaiah 53:5). Often hailed as one of the greatest chapters in the Bible, the prophecy of the suffering servant in Isaiah 53 foretells the crucifixion of Jesus – the central event in God’s ultimate plan to redeem the world.
This book explains the prophetic words of Isaiah 53 verse by verse, highlighting important connections to the history of Israel and to the New Testament – ultimately showing us how this ancient prophecy illuminates essential truths that undergird our lives today.
“The Gospel according to God is a beautifully written exposition of the gospel of Jesus Christ as it is revealed through the prophet Isaiah... The work is scholarly yet devotional – a resource for teaching the gospel to the church and a tool for the evangelization of both Jew and Gentile.”
