Palm Sunday and the “Servant Song”

Isaiah 50:4-7 is often referred to as one of the “servant songs.” It identifies an anonymous person that suffered greatly on behalf of others.

Isaiah 50:4-7

“The Lord God has given me a well-trained tongue, that I might know how to speak to the weary a word that will rouse them. Morning after morning he opens my ear that I may hear; and I have not rebelled, have not turned back. I gave my back to those who beat me, my cheeks to those who plucked my beard; my face I did not shield from buffets and spitting. The Lord God is my help, therefore I am not disgraced; I have set my face like flint, knowing that I shall not be put to shame.” 

Just as his suffering deepened the resiliency of the servant, Jesus’ revelation of salvation by means of suffering, crucifixion, and death offers a definitive understanding to the plight of the servant. We must know the incomprehensible wisdom available in suffering—its transformative and redemptive power. In our appreciation for what God has done for us in Christ’s suffering and death on the cross, we come to know that power perfectly and definitively. 

I shall not be put to shame!
