The title says it all. This is Jamie Buckingham's testimony in which he begins with the premise that there is much more to our Christian experience than what first meets the eye. Our lives are like placid lakes which are deeply polluted. We have customarily pushed the pain of unhappy experiences beneath the surface where it stays quite alive in the subconscious mind. Thus it is that, at conversion, the Holy Spirit may make some dramatic-looking changes in our lives, but the bulk of our sin remains, largely untouched, hidden beneath the surface. If, however, we continue to follow Jesus, choosing his way instead of our own, the Holy Spirit will lead us to people and circumstances that will bring our sin to the surface where it can be confessed and forgiven.

The Dead Sea Scrolls were first discovered in late 1946 in caves along the Dead Sea. The ancient settlement of Khirbet Qumran held millennial old sealed clay jars which contained about 1200 manuscripts, including more than 300 Biblical texts. Arguably the greatest discovery at Qumran is the Great Isaiah Scroll, a nearly complete scroll that was copied around 125 BC. It contains all 66 chapters of Isaiah.
In this book, we will focus on a particularly interesting passage in the second half of Isaiah: chapter 53. It has been called the Holy of Holies of the Old Testament. These twelve verses offer a summary of the entire New Testament, written more than 700 years before Jesus Christ was born. A number of passages in the Hebrew Scriptures describe the victory of the Messiah as the ruler of the world, and the Jews have focused on those. This chapter provides another unexpected purpose for the great King; it’s an incredible prophecy that describes the Messiah as a servant who suffers and dies for His people.
