One author submits that Isaiah Chapter 53 is not about Jesus after all, but rather about the same son of man that Jesus spoke of, who would "first suffer many things and be rejected by his generation."

Of course, most Christians have been led to believe Jesus was talking about himself when he said that. But, if you think about it, he did not first suffer, but suffered only on the last day of his life, and he was accepted by multitudes in his generation. And, if Jesus is really supposed to come again magically, how would he first be rejected by his generation?

Also, consider all the references to God's servant in the book of Isaiah that do not apply to Jesus, including Chapter 53. None of that chapter is about Jesus, and even the two words or phrases that seem to speak of Jesus are not about him after all. They are about the modern son of man, who has first been stricken and afflicted, suffered many things, and at age 70 has still been rejected by his generation.

Check out the article and see what you think. It's Isaiah Chapter 53.
