Chapter Summary

Isaac Foster's vivid description of the torture and crucifixion of Christ is stirring. It is interesting that he chose the Old Testament rather than the New Testament as his opening text for this sermon, and the New Geneva Study Bible offers some possible explanations. "Isaiah predicted the coming of a Servant and Savior much greater than Cyrus. This anonymous Servant would bring justice to the nations, establish Israel in a new covenant with the Lord, become a light to the Gentiles, and take away the sins of His people. The Servant would suffer willingly to achieve these victories, and God would reward and vindicate him. The new Testament identifies the Servant as Jesus Christ, the incarnate Lord". The significance of typological themes was clearly an important aspect of Puritan theology.
