Can we be saved by the death of someone else?
The Christian translators purposely translated the Hebrew text to support their belief in the son of the New Testament.
They did not translate YHWH‘s word as He meant it to be written. We have put the right pronouns to correct the false references to “he/him/our/his” back in this chapter.
Isa 53:1-10 “Who has believed what we have heard? And to whom has the arm of YHWH been revealed?
V 2 For they grew up before him like a young plant, and like a root out of dry ground; they had no form or comeliness that we should look at them, and no beauty that we should desire them.
V 3 They were despised and rejected by men; men of sorrows, and acquainted with grief; and as one from whom men hide their faces they were despised, and we esteemed them not.
V 4 Surely they have borne their sicknesses and carried their pain; yet we esteemed them stricken, smitten by YHWH, and afflicted.
V 5 But they were wounded for their transgressions, they were bruised for their iniquities; upon them was the chastisement that made them whole, and with their stripes they are healed.
V 6 All we like sheep have gone astray; Jacob, they have turned every one to their own way; and YHWH has laid on them their iniquity.
V 7 They were oppressed, and they were afflicted, yet they opened not their mouth; like a lamb that is led to the slaughter, and like a sheep that before its shearers is dumb, so they opened not their mouth.
V 8 By oppression and judgment they were taken away; and as for their generation, who considered that they were cut off out of the land, stricken for their transgression?
V 9 And they made their grave with the wicked and with rich men in their death.
V 10 Yet it was the will of YHWH to bruise them; He put them to grief; for transgression, they shall see their offspring, they shall prolong their days; the will of YHWH shall prosper in their hand;”Hebrew words have many applications, many meanings, but in some places the Hebrew words only have a few meanings that kept the translator from hiding the real meaning, such as above.
Did the supposed son have children? We would say no. Did he prolong his days? Again, no. According to the story he died a young man in his early thirties, so he did not prolong his days. So you can see that this chapter is about YHWH‘s servant, the sons of Jacob, not Jesus or Yahshua. Continued in Isa 53:11 “they shall see the fruit of the travail of their soul and be satisfied; by their knowledge shall the righteous one, my servant, make many to be accounted righteous; and they shall bear their iniquities.”
In this chapter, the translators translate YHWH‘s Hebrew words so it seems that you think it is saying that someone died for our iniquities. Yet no one seems to realize that this doctrine is not in accord with the rest of the law and the testimony of YHWH‘s prophets, so we have used they, their, them, plural, instead of singular as the scribes have falsified.
Jer 31:30 “for every one shall die for his own iniquity, if he does not return to keep the STATUTES AND JUDGMENTS;”
Eze 18:20 “The soul that transgresses, it shall die. The son shall not bear the iniquity of the father, neither shall the father bear the iniquity of the son; the righteousness of the righteous shall be upon him, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon him.”
If you read these verses carefully you can see that according to the law and the testimony, we die for our own transgressions, if we do not return to obedience to YHWH‘s Ten Commandments. Notice the son cannot bear the iniquity of others; neither can the father bear the iniquity of another. Be advised that neither can the supposed son of the New Testament bear the iniquities of others either. WHY? Because theFather has told us that everyone shall die for his OWN iniquity. I hope your mind is open to YHWH‘s truth.
Continued Isa 53:12 “Therefore I will divide them a portion with the great, and they shall divide the spoil with the strong; [Where in the N.T. does it speak of this?] because they poured out their soul to death, and was numbered with the transgressors; yet they bore their transgressions, and made intercession for their transgressions.
Who is YHWH‘s servant?
Please show us a New Testament verse where the son is called a servant. The suffering servant are the sons of Jacob, after they were removed from the land of Canaan, and after they were put in bondage for 70 years. They were then dispersed throughout the earth.
Isa 41:8 “But thou, Jacob, my servant, Jacob, whom I have chosen, the seed of Abram, my friend.
Isa 41:9 thou whom I have taken from the ends of the earth, and called from the extremities thereof, and to whom I said, Thou art my servant, I have chosen thee and not rejected thee.”
Isa 42:1 “Behold my servant whom I uphold, mine elect in whom my soul delighteth. I will put my breath upon him; he shall bring forth judgment to the nations”.
Isa 42:19 “Who is blind, but my servant? and deaf, as my messenger whom I sent? Who is blind as he in whom I have trusted, and blind as YHWH‘s servant?”
Isa 44:1 “And now hear, Jacob, my servant, and Jacob, whom I have chosen:” Isa 44:2 “thus saith YHWH, that made thee, and formed thee from the womb, who helpeth thee, Fear not, Jacob, my servant, and thou, Jeshurun, whom I have chosen.”
Isa 44:21 “Remember these things, O Jacob, for thou art my servant; I have formed thee: thou art my servant, Jacob; thou shalt not be forgotten of me”.
Isa 45:4 “For Jacob my servant’s sake, and Jacob mine elect, I have called thee by thy name; I surnamed thee, though thou didst not know me;”
Isa 49:3 “And he said unto me, Thou art my servant, Jacob, in whom I will praise myself.”
Isa 52:13 “Behold, my servant shall deal prudently; he shall be exalted and be lifted up, and be very high.”
Isa 53:11 “He shall see of the fruit of the travail of his soul, and shall be satisfied: by his knowledge shall my righteous servant instruct many in righteousness; and *they* shall bear their iniquities.”
Jer 30:10 “And thou, my servant Jacob, fear not, saith YHWH; neither be dismayed, O Jacob: for behold, I will save thee from afar, and thy seed from the land of their captivity; and Jacob shall return, and shall be in rest, and at ease, and none shall make him afraid.”
If you believe the Father’s word in the prophets, there is plenty of evidence to show that Jacob is the servant spoken of in Isa 53.
