According to newtestamentchristians.com, there are 351 Messianic prophecies in the Old Testament that are fulfilled in Jesus. The book of Isaiah contains 125 of them, 35 of which appear in chapter 53. That means a full 10 percent of all the prophecies God gave Israel about the Messiah appear in this amazing chapter of His Holy Word. So we're devoting this issue of Israel My Glory to Isaiah 53. We hope you enjoy it.
