My Righteous Servant

My Righteous Servant is one translation of a Hebrew phrase in the famous “suffering servant” prophecy of Isaiah. It is a prophetic messianic name of Jesus (Yeshua‘). The idea that the Messiah (Christ) would serve, let alone suffer, was shocking to the Jewish people of the time. Jesus (Yeshua‘) redefined messiahship and Lordship.
