Isaiah 42 – The Spectacular Servant
Today Brian, Pastor Gimbel, Isaac, and Shana break down Isaiah chapter 42 into two chunks. The first section, verses 1-4, gives us a little insight into our Lenten theme this year of the suffering servant. The servant is not fighting the inevitable, but will carry out what He was sent to do. The crew talks a lot about the justice that we actually deserve, but instead we are given grace by God. In the second half of this passage we focus on the power of God’s creation. We also get a call back to the covenants that God has made with His people. This starts a deep discussion as to whether this passage is referring to Jesus, or to Abraham, or even to us. The contrast is evident in these passages, we see the power of the servant and also the suffering of the servant, which points us directly to Holy Week!
