The Servant Songs of Isaiah

Servant Song No 4 – Isaiah Ch 53 (45 min)

PART 5 – Joshua Jacob expounds the fourth of Isaiah’s 4 “servant songs” from Isaiah 52:13-53:12. This jewel of a chapter, called “the 5th gospel” by some expositors, outlines the birth, life, appearance, sufferings, death, resurrection and reign of the Servant of Jehovah -the Lord Jesus Christ – over 700 years before he was born – and caps off this ministry series on a Christ-exalting note (Message preached May 28th 2017)

Servant Song No 3 – Isaiah Ch 50 (45 min)

PART 4 – Michael Penfold expounds the third of Isaiah’s 4 “servant songs” from Isaiah 50:4-9. If Israel is the “servant at fault” (v1-3), Christ is the Servant “who is faithful” (v4-9). The challenge to the hearer to is be a servant who “fears the Lord” (v10-11). If Israel was a deaf servant, Christ is the Servant whose ear was opened to do the Father’s will, even though it meant giving His back to the smiters (Message preached May 21st 2017)

Servant Song No 2 – Isaiah Ch 49 (35 min)

PART 3 – Joshua Jacob expounds the second of Isaiah’s 4 “servant songs” from Isaiah 49:1-7. He sees the Servant – the Lord Jesus Christ – endorsed, expected, established, exonerated, extolled, and the Servants’s work extended in this poetic song of Isaiah – all in contrast to the failed Servant of Israel, who will yet be blessed through the perfect Servant Christ (Message preached May 14th 2017)

Servant Song No 1 – Isaiah Ch 42 (45 min)

PART 2 – Mervyn Hall expounds the first of Isaiah’s 4 “servant songs” from Isaiah 42:1-9. He outlines the context, characteristics, construction and content of the song as it speaks to the general theme of the “commissioning” of Christ as the Servant of Jehovah. In the structure of the song we are introduced to 3 couplets, 3 contrasts, 3 judgment statements and 3 divine statements (Message preached May 7th 2017)

Introduction to the Servant Songs (35 min)

PART 1 – Aaron Colgan gives an introduction to the “Servant Songs of Isaiah”. In the latter part of Isaiah’s prophecy it has been noticed that there are 4 particular poetic passages, all of which tell us something about the Lord Jesus, Jehovah’s perfect Servant, who brings blessing to Israel, the nation who had rebelled against the Lord and failed in its own role as the Servant of the Lord (Message preached Apr 30th 2017)
