Scripture Reference: Isaiah 53
It's UnbelievableDr. Warren W. Wiersbe | May 25, 1975
Selected highlights from this sermon
The book of Isaiah is like a mini-Bible with 39 chapters of judgment and 27 chapters of salvation. At the heart of it is Isaiah 53 where we see the voluntary suffering of an innocent man for another person’s sin. Jesus suffered to pay the price for our sin. By His suffering, we were healed—and that’s unbelievable. It is the only way our sins can be forgiven, and the only way God’s demand for justice can be satisfied.
