Fourth Servant Song in Isaiah – Part 6

And they made His grave with the wicked– But with the rich at His death, Because He had done no violence, Nor was any deceit in His mouth. Isaiah 53:9 NKJV

What a sad day this must have been for the followers of Jesus. All their hope evaporated. Even Jesus’ death and burial were prophesied by Isaiah. Isaiah made this prophecy about 700 years before Christ. Just as Isaiah predicted, Jesus died with criminals. One on each side of Him. Jesus had done nothing to justify dying for any crime. He was sinless.  Having given His life for sinners, He was placed with them in death.

Isaiah said He would be buried with the rich. What a contrast with the life He led of poverty and being placed in the tomb of the rich.

Then two robbers were crucified with Him, one on the right and another on the left. Matthew 27:38 NKJV

Now when evening had come, there came a rich man from Arimathea, named Joseph, who himself had also become a disciple of Jesus. This man went to Pilate and asked for the body of Jesus. Then Pilate commanded the body to be given to him. When Joseph had taken the body, he wrapped it in a clean linen cloth, and laid it in his new tomb which he had hewn out of the rock; and he rolled a large stone against the door of the tomb, and departed. And Mary Magdalene was there, and the other Mary, sitting opposite the tomb. Matthew 27:57-61 NKJV
