The Suffering Servant of the Lord: A Prophecy of Jesus Christ is a major new study of the fifty-third chapter of Isaiah. It is exegetical, expositional, devotional, and Christological: It is exegetical in that it is based on a careful study of the text. It is expositional in that it explains the meaning of chapter to both its original and modern readers. The book will give preachers and teachers help in outlining and illustrating their sermons and lectures. It is devotional in that this marvelous chapter addresses the deepest need of people, the need for forgiveness of sin and peace with God. It is Christological in that it focuses on the person of Jesus Christ. MacLeod writes, I have finished this work more convinced than ever that the passage is a straightforward prophecy of Jesus Christ written by the prophet Isaiah some seven hundred years before the birth of the Savior.
