29 Prophecy Fulfillments, Part 19. The Silence Of The Lamb Prophecy. Deacon Jason Kauranen.


July 7, 2021
  1. Isaiah prophesied that Jesus would not make an effort to defend Himself at His trial.

Prophesied: Isa 53:7      Fulfilled: MAT 27:12-14

 

 

 

Isa 53:7 He was oppressed and He was afflicted,

Yet He did not open His mouth;

Like a lamb that is led to slaughter,

And like a sheep that is silent before its shearers,

So He did not open His mouth.

 

“Oppressed” is nâgaś = (naw-gas’) = to drive (by force) a workman by implication of harassment and tyranny (by an oppressor or taskmaster)

“Afflicted” ânâh = (aw-naw’)=

A primitive root (the idea of looking down or browbeating); – abase self, afflict or chasten self, deal hardly with, defile, exercise with force, gentleness, humble (self), hurt, submit self, weaken

 

Mat 7:1 “Do not judge so that you will not be judged.

Mat 7:2 For in the way you judge, you will be judged; and by your standard of measure, it will be measured to you.

 

Rom 2:1 Therefore you have no excuse, every one of you who passes judgment, for in that which you judge another, you condemn yourself;

 

John 7:50 Nicodemus (he who came to Him before, being one of them [Pharisees]) said to them, 51 “Our Law does not judge a man unless it first hears from him and knows what he is doing, does it?”

 

John 19:10 So Pilate said to Him, “You do not speak to me? Do You not know that I have authority to release You, and I have authority to crucify You?”

John 19:11 Jesus answered, “You would have no authority over Me, unless it had been given you from above; for this reason, he who delivered Me to you has the greater sin.”

 John 19:30 Therefore when Jesus had received the sour wine, He said, “It is finished!” And He bowed His head and gave up His spirit.

 

NASB – “like a sheep that is silent before its shearers,”

KJV – “as a sheep before her shearers is dumb,”

 

âlam = (aw-lam’) = to tie fast; hence (of the mouth) to be tongue tied: – bind, be dumb, put to silence.

 

 Isaiah’s point is that Jesus was silent, not helpless, and even came with a willingness.

 

Isa 1:1Then a shoot will spring from the stem of Jesse,

And a branch from his roots will bear fruit.

Isa 1:2The Spirit of the LORD will rest on Him,

The spirit of wisdom and understanding,

The spirit of counsel and strength,

The spirit of knowledge and the fear of the LORD.

 

Jesus in his youth,

Luke 2:40 The Child continued to grow and become strong, increasing in wisdom; and the grace of God was upon Him.

Mat 11:11 Truly I say to you, among those born of women there has not arisen anyone greater than John the Baptist!

Luke 1:80 And the child (John the Baptist) continued to grow and to become strong in spirit, and he lived in the deserts until the day of his public appearance to Israel.

 

2 Peter 3:18 but grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To Him be the glory, both now and to the day of eternity. Amen.

When the Lord Jesus Christ died on the Cross, it was voluntary.

 

Prophet Jeremiah is told by the Lord that a conspiracy has been found against God by the people of Israel, for they turned to other gods and they “would not listen to His Voice” Jeremiah 11.

 

Jer 11:19 But I was like a gentle lamb led to the slaughter;  And I did not know that they had devised plots against me, saying,

“Let us destroy the tree with its fruit,

And let us cut him off from the land of the living,

That his name be remembered no more.”

 

 

Mat 27:12 And while He was being accused by the chief priests and elders, He did not answer.

 

Mat 27:13 Then Pilate said to Him, “Do You not hear how many things they testify against You?”

 

Mat 27:14 And He did not answer him with regard to even a single charge, so the governor was quite amazed.

Mark 14:60 The high priest stood up and came forward and questioned Jesus, saying, “Do You not answer? What is it that these men are testifying against You?”

 

Mark 14:61 But He kept silent and did not answer. Again, the high priest was questioning Him, and saying to Him, “Are You the Christ, the Son of the Blessed One?

 

Mat 26:63 But Jesus kept silent. And the high priest said to Him, “I adjure You by the living God, that You tell us whether You are the Christ, the Son of God.”

 

When Jesus stood before Pilate, He was silent, until to remain silent was to deny His deity and Kingship. Mat 27:11, Mark 15:2

 

 

Mat 27:11 Now Jesus stood before the governor, and the governor questioned Him, saying, “Are You the King of the Jews?” And Jesus said to him, It is as you say.”

 

Mark 15:2 Pilate questioned Him, “Are You the King of the Jews?” And He answered him,It is as you say.”

Peter says, when they hurled insults at Jesus, He did not retaliate. Instead, what did He Do?

Give it over to the Supreme Court of Heaven.

1 Pe 2:21-23

 

1 Pe 2:21 For you have been called for this purpose, since Christ also suffered for you, leaving you an example for you to follow in His steps,

 

1 Pe 2:22 WHO COMMITTED NO SIN, NOR WAS ANY DECEIT FOUND IN HIS MOUTH;

 

1 Pe 2:23 and while being reviled, He did not revile in return; while suffering, He uttered no threats, but kept entrusting Himself to Him who judges righteously;

 

The Greek work translated ‘entrusting’ here is:

‘paradidōmi’ = means to surrender, – that is,

yield up, entrust, commit, give (over, up).

God the Father who controlled everything, even this trial, not His Jewish or Roman accusers.

FRD – Jesus was obedient to the Father’s Plan, and if He stayed in that plan, carrying out His PSD, then the Father would be glorified.

 

John 17:1 Jesus spoke these things; and lifting up His eyes to heaven, He said, “Father, the hour has come; glorify Your Son, that the Son may glorify You,

 

John 17:5 Now, Fatherglorify Me together with Yourself, with the glory which I had with You before the world was.

 

 

Psa 7:11 God is a righteous judge, And a God who has indignation every day.

 

Acts 17:31 because He has fixed a day in which He will judge the world in righteousness through a Man whom He has appointed, having furnished proof to all men by raising Him from the dead.

 

 

 2 Ti 4:8 in the future there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day; and not only to me, but also to all who have loved His appearing.

 

My hope is that you will “keep entrusting” yourself to God, doing the same as Jesus Christ, become an imitator of Him.

Eph 5:1, 1 Co 11:1, 1 Thes 1:6.

 

Eph 5:1 Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children;

1 Co 11:1 Be imitators of me, just as I also am of Christ.

 

1 Thes 1:6 You also became imitators of us and of the Lord, having received the word in much tribulation with the joy of the Holy Spirit,

 

 

 

When Jesus went before contemptuous, sneering Herod, He stood absolutely silent, answering nothing. Luke 23:9.

 

Jesus was silent before all His accusers, since He had no sin to confess.

  1. Isaiah also foretold Jesus Christ’s crucifixion as the sin offering for the world.
    Prophesied: ISA 53:4-610-11

Fulfilled: JOH 19:16-19

 

 

Isa 53:4 Surely our griefs He Himself bore,

And our sorrows He carried;

Yet we ourselves esteemed Him stricken,

Smitten of God, and afflicted.

 

 Isa 53:5 But He was pierced through for our transgressions,

He was crushed for our iniquities;

The chastening for our well-being fell upon Him,

And by His scourging we are healed.

 

 Isa 53:6 All of us like sheep have gone astray,

Each of us has turned to his own way;

But the LORD has caused the iniquity of us all

To fall on Him.

 

Isa 53:10 But the LORD was pleased

To crush Him, putting Him to grief;

If He would render Himself as a guilt offering,

He will see His offspring, He will prolong His days,

And the good pleasure of the LORD will prosper in His hand.

 

 Isa 53:11 As a result of the anguish of His soul,

He will see it and be satisfied;

By His knowledge the Righteous One,

My Servant, will justify the many,

As He will bear their iniquities.

 

 

His (Jesus) sacrifice was the propitiation for all sin – God the Father was satisfied with God the SON, Jesus Christ’s sacrifice on our account.

Rom3:25; Heb2:17; 1 Jo2:2, 4:10

 

Romans 3:25 whom God displayed publicly as a propitiation in His blood through faith. This was to demonstrate His righteousness, because in the forbearance of God He passed over the sins previously committed;

 

Heb 2:17 Therefore, He had to be made like His brethren in all things, so that He might become a merciful and faithful high priest in things pertaining to God, to make propitiation for the sins of the people.

 

1 John 2:2 and He Himself (Jesus Christ) is the propitiation for our sins; and not for ours only, but also for those of the whole world.

 

1 John 4:10 In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins.

 

 

We might be forgiven of our sin by faith in Him and be redeemed from eternal separation from Our God and Creator.

 

 

Acts 26 :18 to open their eyes so that they may turn from darkness to light and from the dominion of Satan to God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins and an inheritance among those who have been sanctified by faith in Me.

 

Galatians 4:5 so that He might redeem those who were under the Law, that we might receive the adoption as sons.

 

Titus 2:14 who gave Himself for us to redeem us from every lawless deed, and to purify for Himself a people for His own possession, zealous for good deeds.

 

 

1 Co 15:54 But when this perishable will have put on the imperishable, and this mortal will have put on immortality, then will come about the saying that is written, “DEATH IS SWALLOWED UP in victory.

 

1 Co 15:55 O DEATH, WHERE IS YOUR VICTORY? O DEATH, WHERE IS YOUR STING?” …

1 Co 15:57 but thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

 

 

Romans 5:19 For as through the one man’s disobedience the many were made sinners, even so through the obedience of the One the many will be made righteous.

 

2 Co 5:21 He made Him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.

 

Mat 26:28 for this is My blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for forgiveness of sins.

 

 

Eph 2:8 For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God;

 

Rom 4:16 For this reason it is by faith, in order that it may be in accordance with grace, so that the promise will be guaranteed to all the descendants, not only to those who are of the Law, but also to those who are of the faith of Abraham, who is the father of us all,

 

 

Acts 16:31 They said, “Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved, you and your household.”

 

Acts 10:43 Of Him all the prophets bear witness that through His name everyone who believes in Him receives forgiveness of sins.

 

 

 Col 1:13-14 For He rescued us from the domain of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of His beloved Son, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.

 

Romans 12:1 Therefore I urge you, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service of worship.

 

 

 

Heb 10:12 but He, having offered one sacrifice for sins for all time, SAT DOWN AT THE RIGHT HAND OF GOD,

 

 

Isaiah 53:6 All of us like sheep have gone astray, Each of us has turned to his own way; But the LORD has caused the iniquity of us all To fall on Him.

 

John 1:29 The next day he saw Jesus coming to him and said, “Behold, the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!

 

 

Mat 9:36 Seeing the people, He felt compassion for them, because they were distressed and dispirited like sheep without a shepherd.

 

 

John10:27 My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me;

John 10:28 and I give eternal life to them, and they will never perish; and no one will snatch them out of My hand.

 

Phi 2:8 Being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross.

 

Every part of the plan of salvation is by grace.

By Grace! BY GRACE!!!

 

Heb 2:9 But we do see Him who was made for a little while lower than the angels, namely, Jesus, because of the suffering of death crowned with glory and honor, so that by the grace of God He might taste death for everyone.

 

Romans 3:23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,

Eph 1:7 In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of His grace

 

Romans 5:21 so that, as sin reigned in death, even so grace would reign through righteousness to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

 

 

 

They(unbelievers) will be judged on their works or deeds, which all fall sort of God’s glory

 

 

John 3:18 He who believes in Him is not judged; he who does not believe has been judged already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

 

 

 

Mat 27:25 And all the people said, “His blood shall be on us and on our children!”

John 19:11 Jesus answered, “You would have no authority over Me, unless it had been given you from above;

 

John 3:16 “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.

 

John 19:16 So he (Pilate) then handed Him over to them to be crucified.

John 19:17 They took Jesus, therefore, and He went out, bearing His own cross, to the place called the Place of a Skull, which is called in Hebrew, Golgotha.

John 19:18 There they crucified Him, and with Him two other men, one on either side, and Jesus in between.

 John 19:19 Pilate also wrote an inscription and put it on the cross. It was written, “JESUS THE NAZARENE, THE KING OF THE JEWS.”

 

John 19:16 So he (Pilate) then handed Him over to them to be crucified.

 

The word for ‘deliver’ here = paradidōmi, to surrender, yield up and give over

(aorist active indicative) = means to betray, and this is really the sense of it here.

 

By cross examination Pilate knew that Jesus Christ was the true King of the Jews.

The disadvantage comes from negative volition at the point of God-consciousness, negative volition at the point of gospel hearing.

 

an aorist active subjunctive of stauroo = to be impale on a cross, extinguish the passion or selfishness, destroy the power of flesh.

 

Jesus had transferred that doctrine, to His human spirit where it became, wisdom.

Nosis to Epinosis.

 

His attitude toward the Father: “Nevertheless not my will but thine be done.” So the Lord Jesus Christ had divine viewpoint and He was willing to go.

 

 

John 19:17 They took Jesus, therefore, and He went out, bearing His own cross, to the place called the Place of a Skull, which is called in Hebrew, Golgotha.

 

Bastadzo = (bearing)means to lift up a heavy burden which puts pressure on you and carry it anyway.

 

Jesus still puts it (the cross beam) up on His shoulder and starts to carry it. His mental attitude is that He is going to the Cross.

 

hautou, which means “himself.” It should be translated, “And he bearing by means of himself the cross.”

 

“went forth” — exerchomai = proceeded forth or to go out, we read this as He ‘went outside.’

 

Jesus dies outside of the gates of Jerusalem, and this fulfills the phrase of Lev 16:27 — “without the gate.” Or “outside the camp”.

 

Heb 13:12 Therefore Jesus also, that He might sanctify the people through His own blood, suffered outside the gate.

 

“into a place called” — literally, ‘being said,’ present passive participle of lego. Lego [to say] is not the same as kaleo [called].

 

“of a skull” — the genitive of kranion, the word from which we get ‘cranium.’

 

“which is designated in the Hebrew Golgotha” — Golgoqa, which is a transliteration from the Aramaic.

 

The Latin for Golgotha or kranion is calvaria, from which we get the word ‘calvary.’

 

John 19:18 There they crucified Him, and with Him two other men, one on either side, and Jesus in between.

 

The synoptic writers go in for various historical details, but John covers the crucifixion from the standpoint of principle.

 

“Meta”, the preposition of association, is to indicate that Christ associated with our sins or the purpose of the cross.

 

John 19:19 Pilate also wrote an inscription and put it on the cross. It was written, “JESUS THE NAZARENE, THE KING OF THE JEWS.”

 

“a title” — titlos, a superscription, a sentence written on the headboard above the head of the one being crucified.

“and put it on the cross” — aorist active indicative of tithemi which means to place.

 

“And the writing was” — literally, “Having been written,” the perfect passive participle of grafo.

– “Jesus of Nazareth the King of the Jews” –

Why did Pontius Pilate write this?

John 1:46 Nathanael said to him, “Can any good thing come out of Nazareth?”…

The whole world would be able to read the title, understand what happened, seeing the events, and have the offer to believe IN HIM.

 1 Peter 4:11 Whoever speaks, is to do so as one who is speaking the utterances of God; whoever serves is to do so as one who is serving by the strength which God supplies; so that in all things God may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom belongs the glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen.
