Isaiah 53 has been called “The forbidden chapter” in some circles because it so obviously points to Yeshua. Synagogues avoid sharing it. Isaiah wrote this chapter seven hundred years before Messiah’s birth. Are you acquainted with it?
Many scriptures have been the inspiration for songs but as far as I know Leonardo Bella’s production of Isaiah 53 is the first full treatment of this prophetic chapter. If you have musical knowledge you will see what a challenging project it was for our friend to put these twelve verses to song. Leonardo has done a splendid job of blending creative moods to carry the words!
This song will not make it to the top ten. It is too weighty. It belongs in the foundation. Lighter songs may make it to “the top” but the substance of this prophecy is “heavy metal”. It melts into the basement supporting the things above.
I ask you to not listen to it on the run or in a distracted moment, but in a quiet place of devotion, a reflective place where you may pray for your friends to comprehend their Jewish Messiah.
Please pass it on. It has the potency to guide secular and religious Jews back to their Foundation. We Gentile believers deeply appreciate this Gift that comes to us through their Messiah.
GO TO leonardobella.com you will find it as the last track on Loves The Answer Cd.
