So when is the last time you’ve read Isaiah 53?
If you’re Jewish it’s likely that you’ve never read it or read it passingly.
How utterly ironic!
The Tanakch (What is commonly called in some circles, the ‘Old Testament’) is indisputably THE most Jewish book ever written! It predates the Talmud, targumim (commentaries) and Zohar (Book of Jewish mysticism) and is the foundation from which the other books are said to have been derived. And yet, per capita, there is little doubt that more Gentiles are familiar with the Tanakch, and Isaiah 53 in particular, than Jews.
It’s not surprising that Isaiah 53 is not part of the average Jewish lexicon. Of all references to Tanakch in the Chumosh (The weekly Tanakch readings found in the synagogue), Isaiah 53 is most notably omitted.
All sorts of arguments are thrown back and forth concerning the reason for this omission but the point is, not even that its omitted, but that the average Jew is not only ignorant of what the Tanakch says but particularly what Isaiah 53 says.
And I’m not going to tell you what it says. Read it for yourself and draw your own conclusions, if, for no other reason, educating yourself in a book with which you should be familiar and of which Gentiles are putting you to shame.
