Objection: "Jewish people don't believe in human sacrifice."

Followers of Jesus do not believe in this either. We as human beings have no right to sacrifice another human being for our sins. Only God has the absolute right to give life and take it away. Because the penalty for sin is death (Ezekiel 18:4), God, in His great mercy, provided His own sacrifice to pay for the sins of the world. His own Son willingly suffered the death penalty for us.

It is the absolutely clear teaching of Isaiah 53 that God would place the punishment due His people upon an innocent and righteous sufferer who would die for Israel's sins. This propehcy was fulfilled by Jesus the Messiah.
