The Suffering Servant of Isaiah 53 is the antipode of the islamic prophet Mohammed

The Suffering Servant

(Matthew 26:57-68; Mark 14:53-65; John 18:19-24; 1 Peter 2:21-25)

1 Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the LORD revealed?

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.

A Grave Assigned

(Matthew 27:57-61; Mark 15:42-47; Luke 23:50-56; John 19:38-42)

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 53:10-12 speak allegory in a figurative speech, just as the word “Arm of God” In Isa 53:1, and other words “Lamb of God”, the Word, and the Wisdom.
    If Christians could think normally and rationally, they should have been able to answer this simple question: Have Moslems and the Jews ever worshiped the lambs, goats, rams, oxen, et cetera with which we and they make a sin offering (Kaffara and Chattah) and atonement?

    Why should Jesus alone be considered a divine one for being a “sin offering” (Lamb), but not those animals? Don’t the animals also bear the sins and shed their bloods as well?

    The reason why Christians are called those who went astray is because they just use a blind emotion alone, but suppress the mind from thinking and comparing things. Feeling can’t separate an allegory of figurative speech from reality or literal things. On other hand, the Atheists are called those whom God incurs the wrath because they just use the mind alone, without feeling,

    There’s a fatal precondition of Isaiah 53 which Jesus fails to fulfill.

    A sacrifice turns invalid and false if the participants do not confess sins *before* slaughtering (as on the holiday of Yom Kippur). Unfortunately no one of *many* Christians confess their sins on Jesus – for him to bear – when he was hanged, and before he died.

    Early Christians just make Jesus a sin offering *after* he died. They commit a silly mistake of not having placed their sins before crucifying him, but rather after he was sacrificed.

    Hence, if even we refer to Isaiah 53, Jesus failed to fulfill it. The sacrifice is invalid.

    Read carefully what Isaiah says: the sins and iniquities of “us” should have been placed on the servant to bear *before* he was offered as a sin offering.
    Now, in their literary folly and religious ignorance, the Christians just read it upside down. Their sins can’t be placed *after* the sacrifice was dead or slaughtered.
    Isa 53
    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.

    Similar to the allegorical words “Arm of God” in Isaiah 53:1 itself, in a figurative speech the KJV uses the phrase *his blood* instead of “its blood” for a sacrificed animal as if it were a human. The KJV Onlyist would not be glad with this.
    Lev 1
    10 And if his offering [be] of the flocks, namely, of the sheep, or of the goats, for a burnt sacrifice; he shall bring it a male without blemish.11 And he shall kill it on the side of the altar northward before the LORD: and the priests, Aaron’s sons, shall sprinkle his blood round about upon the altar.

    Yes, Even Lasarus (one whom Jesus beloved) and Mary who stood below the cross just eventually departed away before the “Lamb” was properly sacrificed or offered to death, hence the sacrifice is invalid. They were supposed to see the moment of terminating Jesus’ life in order to make his sacrifice legitimate.
    Jesus doesn’t fulfill Isaiah 53. They just see him but not lay down their sins on him before his death. No one of the Jews or the Romans or disciples happens to have laid their iniquities on Jesus on the cross. Crucifixion goes out in vain.
    Jn 12
    37 But though he had done so many miracles before them, yet they believed not on him: 38 That the saying of Esaias the prophet might be fulfilled, which he spake, Lord, who hath believed our report? and to whom hath the Arm of the Lord been revealed? 39 Therefore they could not believe, because that Esaias said again, 40 He hath blinded their eyes, and hardened their heart; that they should not see with their eyes, nor understand with their heart, and be converted, and I should heal them.

    John just cited Isa 53:1-2 but abruptly stopped short from writing in Isa 53:6-8 in his Gospel.

    John knows Jesus doesn’t fulfill Isaiah 53. Their sins were supposed to be placed *before* the sacrifice was dead or slaughtered. That didn’t happen. They wrongly placed their sins on Jesus after he resurrected himself.
