Lent Devotional

Here is my second devotional with Pittsburgh Theological Seminary. I was overjoyed to be asked to participate! This devotional is written about Isaiah 49, which includes one of the Suffering Servant songs. The most famous of these is Isaiah 53, which is so often read this time of year as a picture of Jesus’ suffering.  Yet here the Servant suffers, but not so grievously; his suffering is interwoven even more clearly with freedom and justice for Israel and the nations.
