Midweek Message

Approaching Easter Week

Carolyn Matthews

April 7, 2022

Who has believed what we have heard?
And to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed?
He was despised and rejected by others;
a man of suffering and acquainted with infirmity;
But he was wounded for our transgressions,
crushed for our iniquities;
upon him was the punishment that made us whole,
and by his bruises we are healed.
All we like sheep have gone astray;
we have all turned to our own way,
and the Lord has laid on him
the iniquity of us all.
(Isaiah 53:1a, 3a, 5-6, NRSV)
