As you know we have been exploring one of my favorite passages in the entire Bible! Here is some more insight on verses 3 and 4!

Isaiah 53:3 He is despised and rejected of men; a Man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from Him; He was despised, and we esteemed Him not.
4 Surely He hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem Him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.

Verse 3-4: What could describe Jesus’ last hours before dying no the cross than the beginning of verse 3? He is despised, He is rejected, He is a man of sorrows and those who had followed Him hid (Matthew 26:56). We brought the Roman regiment better pleasure then to wipe and strike a man that had supposedly tried to usurp the throne? What gave the Pharisees better glee then seeing their enemy, God Almighty, hanging in front of their eyes? What gave the religious sects better satisfactions then to see their Savior bleeding for them? They saw Him through dark glasses!
