The Cross – Isaiah 53


Ask the Spirit to guide you as you read God’s word for today. Remember to read the entire passage

Isaiah 53:5-6


“But he was pierced for our transgressions;
he was crushed for our iniquities;
upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace,
and with his wounds we are healed.
All we like sheep have gone astray;
we have turned—every one—to his own way;
and the Lord has laid on him
the iniquity of us all.”

Isaiah 53:5-6

  • According to Isaiah 53:5 why was Christ pierced?
  • Define the word “chastise”.
  • Using the information you gained from defining the word chastise, paraphrase  Isaiah 53:5 b.
  • What phrases convey the entirety of the world’s transgression?
  • What phrase conveys the entirety of what Christ has done for  us all!
  • Within “us all” – is you! He died for YOU! Write a praise thanking Jesus for what he did for you!


By His wounds you are healed! Live as a redeemed – new creation in Christ! I will be praying for you!
