Unexpected Savior

When God devised His plan to send a Savior for us, He wanted us to be prepared to recognize Him. Hundreds of years before Jesus was even born, there were many things declared about the coming Savior in order to point His people to Him, that they would know it was Him. All of these point to Jesus. Throughout this series, we'll be looking at various Old Testament prophecies that point to Jesus, and in particular we will go through one of the most powerful sections of Scripture that illuminates the life and ministry of the Messiah: Isaiah 53.

In this sermon, we look at the first couple verses of Isaiah 53 that tell us that there is some hard to believe news: the Savior would come from among us, a human Himself, and suffer for us. Other Old Testament prophecies show us other specific mentions of this Savior who would be born in an unlikely, surprising way, causing many expectations of a powerful and ruling King to be shattered. But this conquering King came to do more than what we had hoped and looked for.
