Redemption = saving something from the trash heap and giving it new life and a new future.
“Messiah” (Hebrew) = “Anointed One”
3 kinds of people who were “anointed” with oil, as a symbol of the Holy Spirit upon them:
Prophets, Priests, and Kings.
The Servant Songs each emphasize a different aspect of who the Messiah will be:
- King (Song 1)
- Prophet (Song 2)
- Priest (Song 4)
“Christ” = the Greek word for “Messiah”

Jesus Christ = Jesus, the Messiah
“The Book of Comfort” (Isaiah 40-55)
Moses foretold that one day God would send a prophet like him, who would be greater than him (Deuteronomy 18)
God rarely acts according to our timelines, but He is never late!
The name Jesus (Yeshua) means: “God saves”
God’s promised redemption will have 3 stages:
- Short-term: The Restoration of Israel
- Mid-term: Salvation to people of all nations
- Long-term: A New Heavens and New Earth
God proves his love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. (Romans 5:8 BLB)

GETTING TO KNOW YOU
Since it is the first meeting, go around and say your name, where you grew up, and something fun you did this summer. Share a time in your life where you were getting ready to go through something difficult. Was there something that gave you hope that helped get you through it?

QUICK REVIEW
Looking back at your notes from this week’s teaching, was there anything you heard for the first time, caught your attention, challenged, or confused you?

MAIN POINT
As our redeemer, Jesus came to give us hope for the future and confidence in God’s love today.

CONTEXT
In this passage, God is speaking to the exiles in Babylon. More accurately: it is a message given before the exile, telling the people he will not abandon them though they will be exiled, but that he will redeem the nation and regather them.

DIGGING DEEPER
1. Read Isaiah 49:1-5.
a. Read Isaiah 49:1 and Jeremiah 1:5. Based upon these passages, what kind of servant of the Lord will this person be? Who do you think He is coming to serve?
b. Now read Isaiah 49:2 and compare it to Matthew 10:34-36. What is Jesus saying about Himself here? How is this helpful to understand?
2. Read Isaiah 49: 6-7
a. What does it mean in verse 6a when, “it says it is too light”? Compare/contrast that to, “as a light”...in verse 6b.
i. What will the attitude be towards this servant? What does this mean for us? Read John 15:18-25.
b. Read Mark 10:45 and Philippians 2:4-8, and discuss how Jesus was a true servant. How do these verses shape the way followers of Christ should think and live?
3. Read Isaiah 49: 8-16
a. Discuss Verses 14-16. Has there been a time in your life of despair? What is God revealing to us here? How does that give us hope?

TAKING IT HOME
Looking back at this week’s study, what is important for you to remember and why?
