Handel's Messiah, Why God came to us - John Van Sloten
December 20, 2009
|We continue our Christmas Advent series on Handelís Messiah
by looking at what Christ came to do.
Behold the Lamb of God that taketh away the sin of the world.
John 1:29, modified
He was despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows and acquainted with grief. He gave His back to the smiters, and His cheeks to them that plucked off the hair: He hid not His face from shame and spitting.
Isaiah 53:3, 50:6, modified
Surely He hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows! He was wounded for our transgressions; He was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement of our peace was upon Him. And with His stripes we are healed.
Isaiah 53:4a-5, modified
All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way. And the Lord hath laid on Him the iniquity of us all.
Isaiah 53:6, modified
Behold, and see if there be any sorrow like unto His sorrow.
Lamentations 1:12, modified
