What Was the GREATEST Sacrifice of All?


Let the prophet Isaiah tell you about the sacrifice of JESUS:

2 For he shall grow up before him 

as a tender plant, 

and as a root 

out of a dry ground: 

he hath no form 

nor comeliness; 

and when we shall see him, 

there is no beauty 

that we should desire him.

3 He is despised 

and rejected of men; 

a man of sorrows, 

and acquainted with grief: 

and we hid as it were 

our faces from him; 

he was despised, 

and we esteemed him not.

4 Surely he hath borne our griefs, 

and carried our sorrows: 

yet we did esteem him stricken, 

smitten of God, 

and afflicted.

5 But he was wounded 

for our transgressions, 

he was bruised 

for our iniquities: 

the chastisement of our peace 

was upon him; 

and with his stripes 

we are healed.

6 All we like sheep 

have gone astray; 

we have turned every one 

to his own way; 

and the Lord hath laid on him 

the iniquity of us all.

7 He was oppressed, 

and he was afflicted, 

yet he opened not his mouth: 

he is brought 

as a lamb 

to the slaughter, 

and as a sheep 

before her shearers 

is dumb, 

so he openeth not 

his mouth.

8 He was taken from prison 

and from judgment: 

and who shall declare 

his generation? 

for he was cut off 

out of the land 

of the living: 

for the transgression 

of my people 

was he stricken.

9 And he made his grave 

with the wicked, 

and with the rich 

in his death; 

because he had done no violence, 

neither was any deceit in his mouth.

10 Yet it pleased the Lord 

to bruise him; 

he hath put him to grief: 

when thou shalt make his soul 

an offering for sin, 

he shall see his seed, 

he shall prolong his days, 

and the pleasure of the Lord 

shall prosper 

in his hand.

11 He shall see 

of the travail 

of his soul, 

and shall be satisfied: 

by his knowledge 

shall my righteous servant 

justify many; 

for he shall bear 

their iniquities.

12 Therefore will I divide him 

a portion with the great, 

and he shall divide the spoil 

with the strong; 

because he hath poured out 

his soul 

unto death: 

and he was numbered 

with the transgressors; 

and he bare the sin 

of many, 

and made intercession 

for the transgressors.

Isaiah 53:2-12 (King James Version)
