BSF Study Questions People of the Promise: Kingdom Divided Lesson 21, Day 5: Skim Isaiah 58-66

12) Isaiah 58:9-14 lists if the people will turn from their ways, The Lord will guide them always, they will find joy and triumph in the heights of the land.

If you do away with the yoke of oppression,
    with the pointing finger and malicious talk,
10 and if you spend yourselves in behalf of the hungry
    and satisfy the needs of the oppressed,

Isaiah 59:20: “The Redeemer will come to Zion, to those in Jacob who repent of their sins,” declares the Lord.

13) Isaiah 61:10: I delight greatly in the Lord;
    my soul rejoices in my God.
For he has clothed me with garments of salvation
    and arrayed me in a robe of his righteousness,
as a bridegroom adorns his head like a priest,
    and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels.

I just love the picture of being wrapped up in God’s salvation and Jesus as the bridegroom and me as the bride. This is a beautiful picture of how much God loves me. This verse is very encouraging in the hard times.

14a) God has made us all and shaped us all to do His will. He is in control. He is in control of nations. We are to obey God as our Creator.

b) We all want to do our own thing, especially when God’s will for our lives is hard. We want to be in control, but we are not. Submitting to His will is the hardest part.

15) God judges His people, but He loves them so much He always calls them back to Him and offers them salvation. Those who choose God will see salvation. Those who forsake God faces judgment.

16) This verse helps me to remember that God made me for a purpose and to keep at it no matter the hardships and circumstances that arise. God looks on me with favor.

BSF Study Questions People of the Promise: Kingdom Divided Lesson 21, Day 3: Isaiah 52:13-53:12

SUMMARY OF ISAIAH 52:13-53:12

Jesus (the servant) will act wisely. He will be raised, lifted up, and exalted. His appearance was disfigured.

Jesus was despised. He had no beauty of majesty. Nothing in his appearance that we should desire.

Yet, he bore our suffering. He was pierced for our transgressions, crushed for our iniquities. He suffered our punishment that brought us peace. By his wounds we are healed.

We’ve gone astray and turned away.

Yet, Jesus was slaughtered like a lamb for us. It was God’s will this happen, the servant our sin offering. Jesus will be great.

6a) Jesus (the servant) will act wisely. He will be raised, lifted up, and exalted. His appearance was disfigured. Jesus was despised. He had no beauty of majesty. Nothing in his appearance that we should desire. Yet, he bore our suffering.

b) Just as there were many who were appalled at him[b]—
his appearance was so disfigured beyond that of any human being
and his form marred beyond human likeness—
15 so he will sprinkle many nations,[c]
and kings will shut their mouths because of him.
For what they were not told, they will see,
and what they have not heard, they will understand.

He was despised and rejected by mankind,
a man of suffering, and familiar with pain.
Like one from whom people hide their faces
he was despised, and we held him in low esteem.

7a) Jesus willingly suffered for my sins. He died and was punished because of me. He brought me peace with God.

b) There are powerful verbs here: pierced, crushed, despised, rejected, oppressed, afflicked, slaughtered. Jesus, who was sinless, suffered terrible pain for our sins. It shows me the depth of the love that Christ holds for me, which is hard to comprehend.

8a) It’s really quite simple: Jesus bore our sins and died for us. He was arrrested; he stood trial; he was forsaken; he was convicted; he was mocked; he was crucified.

b) God always (and still does) have a plan for all of humanity and for me who plays a role in humanity. He wanted his people to know that the ulitmate home was coming; that God would save all.

9) Dear Lord. Thank you for having a plan, for bringing that plan to fruition to save the world, and for having a plan for the future when we’ll all worship you here on earth. Thank you for making the ultimate sacrifice of your son for us. We are so blessed, so in awe of you. We humbly worship you. Thank you. Amen

I love how God is so good to reveal His plans to us. So humbling what Jesus did that it’s hard to put into words.

This is Servant Song #4.

Matthew 8:16-17 says that this passage is Jesus.

Jesus will be exalted, but he will suffer. He was beaten so badly that he was disfigured.

His work will cleanse many nations (sprinkling often means cleansing from sin as seen in the Old Testatment (Exodus 24:8Leviticus 3:8Numbers 19:21Ezekiel 36:25).

Jesus appeared as you and I do. He was normal. Jesus knew grief and was rejected because of it. People withdrew from him.

He bore our sins. We have gone astray and need Jesus. Jesus died for us as was God’s plan.

Jesus willingly died; he offered no resistance.

Jesus will be rewarded for his work Philippians 2:10-11

We now can be with God forever.
