Spoken of by Isaiah: Matthew 12

Posted by adventbiblestudy on October 29, 2010


KJV Matthew 12:17. That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, 18. Behold my servant, whom I have chosen; my beloved, in whom my soul is well pleased: I will put my spirit upon him, and he shall shew judgment to the Gentiles. 19. He shall not strive, nor cry; neither shall any man hear his voice in the streets. 20. A bruised reed shall he not break, and smoking flax shall he not quench, till he send forth judgment unto victory. 21. And in his name shall the Gentiles trust.

 

This is not a parable, but an observation by the author, Matthew. This book was written after Jesus was resurrected and met with the disciples to reveal the Old Testament scriptures which told of His life, death, and resurrection. And he said unto them, These are the words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms, concerning me. Then opened he their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures. Luke 24:44-45 KJV.

 

Of all the Old Testament scriptures Matthew was shown, this was one he considered important enough to record in his book.   This lesson shows how important it is for the serious student of the Bible to study as directed.   When an Old Testament book is quoted, the original texts should be investigated. In this instance, Matthew is quoting Isaiah, which is often translated as Esaias in the New Testament.

 

Locating the original text can be accomplished by searching for a few uncommon key words. In this case the words reed and flax are a few which will quickly locate the proper texts.

 

Isaiah 42:1-10 KJV Behold my servant, whom I uphold; mine elect, in whom my soul delighteth; I have put my spirit upon him: he shall bring forth judgment to the Gentiles. (2) He shall not cry, nor lift up, nor cause his voice to be heard in the street. (3) A bruised reed shall he not break, and the smoking flax shall he not quench: he shall bring forth judgment unto truth. (4) He shall not fail nor be discouraged, till he have set judgment in the earth: and the isles shall wait for his law. (5) Thus saith God the LORD, he that created the heavens, and stretched them out; he that spread forth the earth, and that which cometh out of it; he that giveth breath unto the people upon it, and spirit to them that walk therein: (6) I the LORD have called thee in righteousness, and will hold thine hand, and will keep thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people, for a light of the Gentiles; (7) To open the blind eyes, to bring out the prisoners from the prison, and them that sit in darkness out of the prison house. (8) I am the LORD: that is my name: and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images. (9) Behold, the former things are come to pass, and new things do I declare: before they spring forth I tell you of them. (10) Sing unto the LORD a new song, and his praise from the end of the earth, ye that go down to the sea, and all that is therein; the isles, and the inhabitants thereof.

 

As you can see, much more information is revealed when locating the original texts. Jesus also used this method of teaching. Remember, when an Old Testament book is quoted, locate the original texts. This should become a necessary procedure when studying the Bible.
