Isaiah 53-

"Surley He has borne our griefs carried our sorrows; yet we esteem him stricken
smitten by God, and afflicted. But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was crush for our iniquities... and with his stripes we are healed." Isiah 53 4-5.

The song that Seven places does is very good, and I encourage you to listen to it.

My favorite of the song is part is "with his stripes we were healed." Very profound, it's amazing what Christ did for us!

Actually, it was several artists. I think it was Mac Powell, Mark Hall, Steven Curtis Chapman ans someone else :) If I'm thinking of the same song, By His Wounds

That CD, Glory Revealed, has multiple artists on it but it was brought about by David Nasser and Mac Powell.

I like this song. I have only heard two songs by Seven Places, Even When and Fall In Line. I really liked Even When, but I never really heard any of their other songs.

The other artist on By His Wounds was Brian Littrell, from Backstreet Boys.

These guys are all good, but they can't hold a candle to the guy who first famously put Isaiah 53 to music - George Frideric Handel (who probably wrote the music by candlelight since is was the summer of 1741!). The majority of "The Messiah"'s second movement - sections 23, 24, 25 and 26 are taken directly from these verses.
You should take time one Christmas to listen to the whole oratorio. It's very moving and makes the "Hallelujah Chorus" at the end more powerful than hearing it stand alone.

Isaiah is one of my favorite passages in scripture (I love it all but you know what I meant...right?) Anyway, thanks for sharing it Kade!
