To Whom The Stroke Was Due - Isaiah 53:8b
Isaiah 53:8 says about Jesus "… he was cut off out of the land of the living for the transgression of my people to whom the stroke was due … (ASV)." If that translation is accurate, it sure sounds like Jesus got what was due us, what we deserved. So Jesus got what we deserved instead of us getting what we deserved. That then would be just another verse that conclusively proves Jesus died a Substitutionary Death.If that is not definite, Isaiah 53:6c most certainly is. It says "the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all." So our sins were on Jesus instead of on us. Again that is exactly what we mean by Substitution.
