Isaiah 53 tells the story of a 'Man of Sorrows' or 'God's Suffering Servant'. Many Christians believe the 'Man of Sorrows' or the 'Suffering Servant' to be a reference to the prophecy of the Ministry of Jesus, which became a common theme in medieval and later Christian art. Jewish scripture in Isaiah 52:13 through Isaiah 53:12 describes the servant of the Lord as the Nation of Israel itself. Regardless of the different of approaches, this chapter (as many others of Isaiah) offers much beautiful rhetoric devises.
