Broken for us...

Five year old grandson spent the day with me.  He looks at the nativity, remembering the story of how Mary was broken.  "Nana, I'm glad Jesus didn't get broken." he says.  And I think to myself, oh, but He did.

"Surely He has borne our griefs, (sicknesses, weaknesses, and distresses), and carried our sorrows and pains (of punishment), yet we (ignorantly) considered Him stricken, smitten and afflicted by God...But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our guilt and iniquities; the chastisement (needful to obtain) peace and well-being for us was upon Him, and with the stripes (that wounded), Him we are healed and made whole.
 Isaiah 53:4-5 Amplified Bible
