This chapter is one of the mountain peaks of scripture.
Out of the ashes of exile will rise up a tender shoot that will eventually tower over the world as the great tree of reconciliation. The people of God will live under the redemptive shade of its towering limbs. A dead tree, the cross, opens the door back to the garden where we will one day once again enjoy the tree of life.
It’s all here. There is a suffering servant who will take our sin upon himself and justify many.
Marvel. Rest. Rejoice. Ecce homo indeed.
