Servant Songs

Quick Reference

Four passages in Deutero-Isaiah (Is. 42: 1–4; 49: 1–6; 50: 4–9; and 52: 13–53: 12) describing the person and character of the ‘servant of the Lord’. Whether the writer referred to the nation of Israel or to an individual is disputed. By Christians the passages have been interpreted as a prophecy of Christ.
