He Was Wounded For Our Transgressions!
(“He was wounded for our transgressions,” pertains to the manner in which He died, which was the price He paid for the Redemption of humanity.
“He was bruised for our iniquities,” means that what He suffered was not at all for Himself, but all for us. It was for our iniquities. Look at the Cross, and then say, “My sin did this.”
“The chastisement of our peace was upon Him,” means that if peace between God and man was to be restored, all which Adam Lost, then Jesus would have to bring it about. Here is the simple doctrine of the Gospel – the death of Christ. All other founders of religions base their claims upon their life and their teaching – their death was a calamity, and without significance. But the death of Christ was His Glory, and forms the imperishable foundation of the one and only Salvation. His purpose in coming was to die.
“And with His stripes we are healed,” definitely pertains to physical healing, but is for grater in meaning than that. Its greater meaning refers to being healed of the terrible malady of sin.)
