THE SORROWING JESUS

He was despised and rejected by men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief; and as one from whom men hide their faces he was despised, and we esteemed him not. (Isaiah 53:3 ESV)

I can’t think of any place in the Bible that would indicate to us that Jesus was a giggling and laughing kind of a man. Instead, we are reminded over and over again that Jesus was a man of sorrows who very much was acquainted with grief.
