Isaiah 53 provides one of the clearest messianic messages of the Old Testament, and is often quoted in the New Testament as a prophecy of what would happen to Jesus. In Why Jesus Dies: A Meditation on Isaiah 53 R.T. Kendall carefully examines the chapter verse by verse tackling crucial subjects as:
* What makes faith, faith?
* How does one recognize God at work?
* Who really crucified Jesus?
* Is there healing in the atonement?
* Why did Jesus die?
* What are the results of Jesus' death? What does the blood of Jesus do for us, and what does the blood of Jesus do for God?
