05/07/2020 – Evening Service: As a Lamb to the Slaughter

Bible Readings:

Matthew 26:57 – 68, Luke 23:1 – 12, John 19:17 – 42

Sermon Outline:

Isaiah 53:7–9 (NKJV)

7 He was oppressed and He was afflicted,

Yet He opened not His mouth;

He was led as a lamb to the slaughter,

And as a sheep before its shearers is silent,

So He opened not His mouth.

8 He was taken from prison and from judgment,

And who will declare His generation?

For He was cut off from the land of the living;

For the transgressions of My people He was stricken.

9 And they made His grave with the wicked—

But with the rich at His death,

Because He had done no violence,

Nor was any deceit in His mouth.
