The Station of the Crown of Thorns
The phrase “the arm of the Lord” is akin to our saying, “Roll up your sleeves.” Isaiah is saying, “Look! God has rolled up his sleeves! He’s going to do something! He’s sending a Savior.” Despite the description in 53:2 of a Messiah so unlike their expectations, God’s people didn’t (or wouldn’t) understand. This Savior was to be a suffering servant, not the conquering king they expected.
