Servant Songs of Isaiah

God’s Servant Equipped and Victorious

Jesus as the servant of God is described in Isaiah 42 as being upheld, and loved by the Father, and as having the Spirit poured out upon him to empower him for his work.

Thus equipped, the servant does actually accomplish all the Father gives him to do in patience and with gentleness.
