WHAT DR. RON CHARLES has presented in this book is the most graphic and realistic depiction given in modern times of Isaiah's prophecy “And when see Him, there is no beauty that we should desire Him ... And we hid as it were our faces from Him ... But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities ... And by His stripes we are healed... He was oppressed and He was afflicted, yet He opened not His mouth ... He was led as a sheep to the slaughter ... So He opened not His mouth." (Isa. 53).
FIFTY STROKES were administered to His back ... then He was turned over and fifty strokes more were laid on His front (Pracitius notes that Jesus' face and genitals were completely gone, internal organs were exposed, and Jesus was totally unrecognizable as a man).
AND YET, throughout this whole ordeal, Jesus did not say a word ... if He had cried out for mercy and in protest of the pain only one time, our provision for the healing of bodies, emotions, spirit, and/or mentally would have been forever lost.
