which we see 5 verses describing the Servant's suffering.
I. The Servant shall be high, lifted up, and exalted as
a result of his suffering to cleanse many (52:13–5).
II. The Servant was a man of sorrows, acquainted
with grief, and despised and rejected by men
III. The Servant suffered in our place, was crushed for
our sins, and bore our iniquity (52:4–6).
IV. The Servant willingly suffered as a lamb led to
slaughter though he was innocent (52:7-9).
V. The Servant will suffer and prosper according to
Yahweh's will, and many will be accounted as
righteous because he was numbered with

John 20:1-10--The Empty Tomb and the ResurrectionBeginning a look at the events of the Resurrection as recorded by all four Gospels, we focus on Peter and John rushing to the tomb to find Jesus' grave cloths mysteriously in order. This not so empty tomb tells us much about Christ's resurrection and ours.Lazarus came out of the tomb with grave clothes on because he would use them again. Jesus left His grave clothes in the tomb, never to be used, for He rose in a glorified body. In Christ, we, too, will be like Christ—we will leave our grave clothes behind! And will be further clothed in our resurrected, glorified body, which will be like His.
I. Significance of the Resurrection
II. Evidence of the Resurrection
III. Nature of the Resurrection

"Then came there two women, that were harlots, unto the king, and stood before him.
And the one woman said, O my lord, I and this woman dwell in one house; and I was delivered of a child with her in the house. And it came to pass the third day after that I was delivered, that this woman was delivered also: and we were together; there was no stranger with us in the house, save we two in the house.
And this woman's child died in the night; because she overlaid it. And she arose at midnight, and took my son from beside me, while thine handmaid slept, and laid it in her bosom, and laid her dead child in my bosom. And when I rose in the morning to give my child suck, behold, it was dead: but when I had considered it in the morning, behold, it was not my son, which I did bear.
And the other woman said, Nay; but the living is my son, and the dead is thy son. And this said, No; but the dead is thy son, and the living is my son. Thus they spake before the king.
Then said the king, The one saith, This is my son that liveth, and thy son is the dead: and the other saith, Nay; but thy son is the dead, and my son is the living.
And the king said, Bring me a sword. And they brought a sword before the king. And the king said, Divide the living child in two, and give half to the one, and half to the other.
Then spake the woman whose the living child was unto the king, for her bowels yearned upon her son, and she said, O my lord, give her the living child, and in no wise slay it. But the other said, Let it be neither mine nor thine, but divide it.
Then the king answered and said, Give her the living child, and in no wise slay it: she is the mother thereof."
1 Kings 3:16-27
Psalm 39 begins with David holding back his complaint lest he be a stumbling block to the wicked (vs 1-3). This preface leaves the reader anxious to find out what is troubling him so? When he finally opens his mouth in verse 4, his complaint is not regarding any human being, wicked or righteous, but is laid against the Lord, Yahweh. We learn from this that it is wise to not voice complaints against God in the hearing of enemies; nevertheless, we should bring our troubles before God Himself.
What troubles David so, is the brevity and meaninglessness of human existence (vs 4-6). The Selah at the end of verses 5 and 11 follow the Hebrew word hebel, translated "mere breath," leading us to pause and meditate on this sobering thought. This is the key word of the book of Ecclesiastes, often translated, "vanity." As perplexing as the brevity of life is, verse 5 affirms that God has made it this way. But why then does God bother with such an insubstantial creature as man? What is His concern with me? Why can He not just leave me alone in my fleeting life? The answer is both easy to understand and utterly abstract. There is a paradox that although our life is fleeting and years are short, we are more than just passing creatures. Our brief journey on this earth has eternal value, as God made us for eternity and for Himself.
