PART 1---Isaiah 1-39 PART 2---Isaiah 40-66 THERE ARE MANY PROPHECIES IN ISAIAH, written 800 years before the birth and life of Jesus, which foretell the coming of a Messiah and Savior to redeem the people from their sins and give them eternal life and hope. According to Isaiah, God would not send a forceful military conqueror as many then expected, but rather a suffering servant, wounded and broken for our transgressions (Isaiah 53:5). The only way for us to be saved, to get rid of our sin problem, is for someone else to take our punishment for us. That's exactly what Jesus did on the Cross. Today, it is up to us to accept our sinfulness---it's called repentance---then accept God's free gift of redemption on the Cross.
