In considering God's grace we are constrained to look also in the Old Testament for Him who was to come from God as man's Savior and Redeemer. We shall not concern ourselves with the references that speak of the promised Messiah in general. Rather we shall take up primarily those passages which show how the demands of God were fulfilled in Him and how the judgments of God were executed upon Him who was to come. This leads us pre-eminently into a discussion of the "Servant poems" (Is. 42: 1-4; 49:1-6; 50:4-9; 52:13-53:12).
