Today's verse is one of the first ones I could recite from memory. Why this verse? A large part is due to one of my favorite musical groups as they took inspiration from the verse for their band name, Stryper. The verse is Isaiah 53:5 (King James Version)
5But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.
If you've seen the movie "The Passion of the Christ" then you know how brutal the beating Jesus took. Other translations of this verse replace the word stripes with wounds. Either way its the same result. How many people do you know that would take that kind of physical abuse for you? He loved you and me that much.
