Isaiah 53:5 But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon Him; and with His stripes we are healed.
6 All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to His own way; and the LORD hath laid on Him the iniquity of us all.

Verse 5-6: Jesus was whipped by Romans; the toughest, meanest and rudest group alive! But, these weren’t just a little whip people use on horses or other animals. No, this whip they flogged Him with is a force to be reckoned with.

The whip:

Name: Flagrum

Design: Long, with bones and sharp objects intertwined within the straps of leather.

Wielders: Strong Romans, with years of practice!

A flagrum beating by a Roman soldier killed many men before they could reach a cross. When Jesus was whipped so bad He was tied to a low post, this stretched His back skin and made it easier to tear.

It just goes beyond me about how all us sheep can go astray from the LORD and it is the very God we rejected that comes down to earth to take our sins away and put them on His Son! His ONLY begotten Son!!!!
