Isaiah 53:6,5 Teach Jesus’ Substitutionary Death – Reject These Verses At Your Own Peril

Maurice Barnett said “It is said that Jesus took every sin of mankind into Himself on the cross … I deny that any … scripture says such a thing but to the contrary the scriptures deny it.” (Gospel Truths, July 2010). Gene Frost said “To the Calvinist that means … they were put on Him … Where is the passage that says that God put the sins of the world on Jesus?” (March 2000 sermon, Louisville, KY). How about Isaiah 53:6c?: the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.

Jesse Jenkins said “Jesus took our sins upon Himself … It is plain Calvinism.” (Feb 21, 2014 email).  Our brethren calling Isaiah 53:6c Calvinism should bother us. In effect it is saying Calvinists hold the scriptural ground, and we must try to get around it.

Look at one of the phrases in Isaiah 53:5 – “the chastisement of our peace was upon him.” Think about what that is saying. Chastisement means “punishment.” God the Father placed our chastisement (punishment) upon Christ so we could have (spiritual) peace with God. In other words, Jesus took the punishment for our sins so we wouldn’t have to.

Our sins on Jesus instead of on us – that’s substitution.  Elaborating, our punishment on Jesus instead of on us – that’s substitution.  Doesn’t that settle this issue?
