Sermon preached on Sunday, March 24, 2013 at Garden Valley Chapel during our worship morning service based on Isaiah 52:13-15.

This morning I want to draw your attention upon the saddest chapter of the Bible, the most horrific one to say the least.

Some have called it "the torture chamber of the rabbis."

This one chapter of Scripture carries the big theme that underlies the whole, vicarious atonement of Christ.

This one chapter carries the most comprehensive exposition of the Cross that is found in the Bible.

This one chapter carries such massive themes such as the vicarious suffering, total obedience, utter willingness to suffer, the guilt of the people of God, and divine approval.

It is certainly one of the grandest and most dearly beloved passages of Scripture.

It is not found in the New Testament, the Second Testament, but in the Old, the First Testament.

Take your Bible if you will and open it to the book of Isaiah, Isaiah chapter fifty-three.

Stand in the reading of the Word of God. Listen as I read Isaiah 53.

Read Isaiah 52:13-53:12.
