ISAIAH 53 Suffering Servant isn’t JESUS By Andre Austin When a thinking mind is compartmentalized he/she is unable to see the full picture. You are the judge of the data input into your brain. If you only receive part of the information you have been manipulated and brainwashed. When a new religion like Christianity spring boards off of another religion Judaism we have to ask the Hebrew Rabbi’s were they correct in hijacking their passages and verses. The answer is no. Rabbi Michael Skobac, director of Education and counseling, brings up 12 problems as to why Isaiah 53 isn’t talking about Jesus as the suffering servant. Feel free to go on youtube and peek out his lecture in full or go to the jewsforjudaism.com website. Here I will highlight the highlights of Jews knowing their own scriptures better than the distortions of Paul. Isaiah 53 is one of 4 poems in Isaiah. Isaiah 53 actually begins in chapter 52 verse 13. Point G is mine. A. The main reason Isaiah 53 isn’t talking about a single person. The suffering servant is the people of Israel. The Christian glove doesn’t fit so you must acquit and take Jesus out of the equation of the Talmud. B. Mistranslation of key important words. The suffering servant isn’t wounded for sins. C. The suffering servant is said to have a physical seed of children having a long life. Christianity has Jesus as a non-sexual monk dying at age 30. D. Suffering servant is dependent and contingent upon accepting this role by his own freewill. Christianity portrays Jesus as having no choice in the matter of suffering and dying. E. Isaiah 53:11 invokes knowledge as being part of the suffering servant. Knowledge is out of the equation in Christianity its his blood alone saving from sins. F. The suffering servant done no violence. The gospel depict Jesus whipping people in the temple and over turning tables, set pigs over a cliff, cursing fig tree’s etc. G. This has profound implications because in Acts 8:32-35 we have the Ethiopian eunuch reading a passage from Isaiah 53:7-8 and Paul applies to a Jesus he never met. There are many examples of God talking about Israel singularly but meaning it plural: Isaiah 49:3 + Isaiah 43:10 Isaiah 54:17 Hosea 11:1 Isaiah 41:8-9, Psalm 44:3, Exodus 3:20, Exodus 4:22 Rabbi Michael Skobac suggest we also read Psalm 44:12-21 because it will help further explain what Isaiah 53 was all about. Rabbi Skobac further goes on to explain that nobody can be a substitute for your own individual sins. In other lectures he explains that repentance and turning away from sin was the key not animal sacrifices were just symbolic. Rabbi Skobac is upset that the Christians redefined the definition of Christ/Messiah in the OT we had Moses, David and King Cyrus that delivered the Jewish people from slavery, Political Persecution and Physical harm and abuse not saving from sins. Christianity made a 180 degree turn from its original definition and told people to endure slavery, political persecution and physical harm not to be saved or released from it. For example see: 1 Sam 7:8 Deuteronomy 22:27 Exodos 14:30 & 15:2 Judges 6:14 Psalms 20:6 In other lectures Skobac proves that Jesus didn’t have to die on the cross and that the book of Daniel wasn’t talking about Jesus either. He explain how Isaiah never talked about a Virgin birth and that Paul misquotes Isaiah 59: 20 in Romans 11:26 for the turning away from transgression/sin then redemption. Or in Hebrews 10:5-10 misquoting Psalms 40:7 has no mention of a body being prepared. Paul taught by tricks, lies and hate. I would go as far as to say that the original atonement idea came out of the war between the Jews and Romans between 66-70 AD where famine/starvation was the key element in defeating the Jews. There was cannibalism that went on with a famous starving Mary from the house of hyssop (sacrifice). This Mary eats her half her baby Lazarus. She predicts this cannibalism would be a “Byword” to the world and a Jewish calamity (War of the Jews Book 6 Chapter 3:201-219), another clamity of an adult Lazarus in in Book 7, 6, 194). I saw another context of the word Byword being used in Psalm 44:13-14 meaning reproach, scorn by their neighbors and the nation. The dictionary said Byword means one that personifies a Type, impression or model of something noteworthy or notorious. With Jesus being a composite I could see him like Lazarus “they made him a supper” (John 12:2-3). For the Jew cannibalism was a sin of military defeat: 1. Lev 26:29 2. Deuteronomy 28:45-57 Military seize results in Cannibalism 3. Ezekiel Chapter 4 Siege of Jerusalem 4. 2.Kings 6:25 Famine people eat a Donkey’s head for the same price for anointing the dead Lazarus who was made a supper John 12:2-3 5. Isaiah Chapter 44 Idol made of wood and roasted half of the bread eaten resemble story in War of the Jews Book 6 Chapter 3:4 201-219 which becomes a parody of New Testament eating of Jesus. Roasted lamp in Exodus 12 and boil manna in Exodus 16 Now you know what Gospels mean in Greek “Good news of military victory”. Which proves Paul was slinging OT passages out of context being a puppet from Rome. The best way to be forever deceived is by the corruption of the input of information flow, compartmentalization. Be like a Judge who gets all the facts, exhibits, documents and evidence from all sides then renders a judgement. The internet is like a courtroom allowing us an all-access pass of theological facts and opinions. When all is said and down I find it no possible way for a Jesus to be the suffering servant in Isaiah 53.
