3.2 Lightning Round Part Two

Katie and Kathryn work through more listener questions about numbers in the Bible, the binding of sins, and Isaiah's suffering servant.


In the second episode of season 3, Prof. Kathryn Schifferdecker and Katie Langston address more listener questions, including:

  • Numbers in the Bible: What is their meaning?
  • What is the best way to explain the binding of sins to an elementary Sunday school class?
  • My question is about the bible passages found in Isaiah chapter 53, verses 4-12. Who is Isaiah referring to in those passages? I always thought Isaiah was referring to our Savior Jesus Christ. However I was told at our last text study that the person Isaiah is talking about in Isaiah 53:4-12 was a servant in Israel and not referring to our Savior Jesus Christ. Can you please clarify this for me?
