    Matthew 8:17 shows us that Isaiah 53:4 is referring to Yeshua the Messiah. Vs 17 " That it might be fullfiled which was spoken by Isaiah the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities and bare our sicknesses." Acts 8:32-33 also shows that Yeshua is the Suffering servant, from verse 7 of Isaiah. There is so much comfirmation of who Yeshua is, i do not know how people miss it or say its not true.

    I don't see that in Isaiah chapter 53. In verse 6, it shows how God (not Jehovah, although he is called that) lays an infinite punishment on Jesus Christ so it can be applied to us on conditions of repentance.

    The opening of Isaiah chapter 53 is a continuation of chapter 52. Chapter divisions had not been made back then, nor when the apostles applied that section of prophecy to Jesus Christ. See Matthew 8:17, John 12:37-41.

    I agree with the apostles, that this One is Jesus Christ.

    However, in Psalm 110 vs 1 is the most astounding link between the Lord (Yahweh) and the Lord (Jesus Christ). Jesus explained this in Matthew 22:43-45, Mark 12:36-37 & Luke 20:42-44. Peter also did that (Acts 2:34-36) and the writer of Hebrews (1:13; 5:6-10 & 7:11-28). "Who do you say I am?" Jesus asked His apostles (Matthew 16:13-17) and upon the Holy Spirit revealing to us the astounding answer depends our salvation. If we do not acknowledge the connection between the Lord Yahweh and the Lord Jesus Christ, we will never bend our knees in Jesus' name and confess Him to be our only Lord - Ephesians 4:3-6.

    Jesus, it’s about Jesus and some of things he would experience, and he did experience all the things that were written about him. Please read Isaiah 53:3 and on. It says 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 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.

    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.

    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.

    Jesus. Despite all the good done by the Messiah, many people would not believe in him. (Read Isaiah 53:1.) Showing that this prophecy was fulfilled, the apostle John wrote: “Although [Jesus] had performed so many signs before them, they were not putting faith in him, so that the word of Isaiah the prophet was fulfilled which he said: ‘Jehovah, who has put faith in the thing heard by us? And as for the arm of Jehovah, to whom has it been revealed?’” Also, few put faith in the good news about Jesus, the Messiah, during the ministry of the apostle Paul.

    Isa 53:5 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.

    A certain reference to Jesus Christ. All Isaiahs work prophesies Christ as do all the OT Prophets

    Luk 24:44 And Jesus said unto them, These are the words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms, concerning me.

    Jhn 5:46 For had ye believed Moses, ye would have believed me: for he wrote of me.

    Act 3:22 For Moses truly said unto the fathers, A prophet shall the Lord your God raise up unto you of your brethren, like unto me; him shall ye hear in all things whatsoever he shall say unto you.
