The Old Covenant Promise.

We read of what Yahuwah was going to do the the Messiah on the old testament:

Isaiah 7
14 Therefore Yahuwah Himself will give you a sign: Listen carefully, the virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and she will call his name Immanuel (Elohim with us). 15 He will eat curds and honey when he knows enough to refuse evil and choose good. 16 For before the child will know enough to refuse evil and choose good, the land (Canaan) whose two kings you dread will be deserted [both Ephraim and Aram].

And we see this take place in Matthew 1

Matthew 1
20 But after he had considered this, an angel of Yahuwah appeared to him in a dream, saying, “Yoseph, descendant of David, do not be afraid to take Mary as your wife, for the Child who has been conceived in her is of the Rauch haKodesh. 21 She will give birth to a Son, and you shall name Him Yahushua (Yahuwah is salvation), for He will save His people from their sins.” 22 All this happened in order to fulfill what Yahuwah had spoken through the prophet [Isaiah]: 23 “Behold, the virgin shall be with child and give birth to a Son, and they shall call His name Immanuel”—which, when translated, means, “Elohim with us.”

Yes. He was to die. He was to be despised and rejected by men and be wounded for our transgressions (Genesis 3:15) and was to be led like a lamb to the slaughter.

Isaiah 53

1 Who has believed [confidently trusted in, relied on, and adhered to] our message [of salvation]?
And to whom [if not us] has the arm and infinite power of Yahuwah been revealed?

2 For He [the Servant of Yahuwah] grew up before Him like a tender shoot (plant),
And like a root out of dry ground;
He has no stately form or majestic splendor
That we would look at Him,
Nor [handsome] appearance that we would be attracted to Him.

3 He was despised and rejected by men,
A Man of sorrows and pain and acquainted with grief;
And like One from whom men hide their faces
He was despised, and we did not appreciate His worth or esteem Him.

4 But [in fact] He has borne our griefs,
And He has carried our sorrows and pains;
Yet we [ignorantly] assumed that He was stricken,
Struck down by Yahuwah and degraded and humiliated [by Him].

5 But He was wounded for our transgressions,
He was crushed for our wickedness [our sin, our injustice, our wrongdoing];
The punishment [required] for our well-being fell on Him,
And by His stripes (wounds) we are healed.

6 All of us like sheep have gone astray,
We have turned, each one, to his own way;
But Yahuwah has caused the wickedness of us all [our sin, our injustice, our wrongdoing]
To fall on Him [instead of us].

7 He was oppressed and He was afflicted,
Yet He did not open His mouth [to complain or defend Himself];
Like a lamb that is led to the slaughter,
And like a sheep that is silent before her shearers,
So He did not open His mouth.

8 After oppression and judgment He was taken away;
And as for His generation [His contemporaries], who [among them] concerned himself with the fact
That He was cut off from the land of the living [by His death]
For the transgression of my people, to whom the stroke [of death] was due?

9 His grave was assigned with the wicked,
But He was with a rich man in His death,
Because He had done no violence,
Nor was there any deceit in His mouth.

10 Yet Yahuwah was willing
To crush Him, causing Him to suffer;
If He would give Himself as a guilt offering [an atonement for sin],
He shall see His [spiritual] offspring,
He shall prolong His days,
And the will (good pleasure) of Yahuwah shall succeed and prosper in His hand.

11 As a result of the anguish of His soul,
He shall see it and be satisfied;
By His knowledge [of what He has accomplished] the Righteous One,
My Servant, shall justify the many [making them righteous—upright before Yahuwah, in right standing with Him],
For He shall bear [the responsibility for] their sins.

12 Therefore, I will divide and give Him a portion with the great [kings and rulers],
And He shall divide the spoils with the mighty,
Because He [willingly] poured out His life to death,
And was counted among the transgressors;
Yet He Himself bore and took away the sin of many,
And interceded [with the Father] for the transgressors.

And there is the promise of the Messiah who died for you and I that we may have eternal life.

Yahuwah Bless.
