Know Your Bible 25

spring 1998

From nucleus - spring 1998 - Know Your Bible 25 [p39]


  1. It was two blind men who called out to Jesus, 'Have mercy on us, Son of David!' After they had confessed their faith in him, Jesus healed them by touching their eyes (Mt 9:27-31).
  2. David says that his ears have been pierced by God (Ps 40:6), signifying that he has become God's servant (Ex 21:6). In fact, David's words are prophetic: they apply to Jesus who became God's servant to secure our salvation (Ps 40:6-8 cf Heb 10:5-7).
  3. It was the Servant of the Lord in Isaiah who said, 'I have laboured to no purpose; I have spent my strength in vain and for nothing'. The words are a stark reminder of the pain Jesus must have felt in suffering on our behalf but they are not words of despair. The second half of the verse displays his confidence in God the Father: 'Yet what is due to me is in the Lord's hand, and my reward is with my God.' (Is 49:4)
