Exploring the ancient prophecy of Isaiah 53 is one of the most fascinating studies one can make. Some say is reveals the story of the Bible in just a few verses. As the heart of the mystery is identifying the one called “My servant.”
Judaism most often identifies the suffering servant as the people of Israel who also have suffered throughout history. Those who believe Jesus was the Messiah of Israel see Isaiah 53 as predicting Jesus’ death, burial, and resurrection, centuries before he lived. Can both interpretations find common ground?
This documentary looks for clues in history, archaeology, and even the Dead Sea Scrolls, seen here at The Israel Museum (13:00). Weigh the findings and gain a deeper understanding of Isaiah’s prophecy of hope.
Participants include Dr. Michael Rydelnik, Dr. Walter Kaiser, Dr. Michael Brown, and Dr. Darrell Bock.
