The Clue Of Silence

READ: Isaiah 53
The chief priests accused Him of many things, but He answered nothing. —Mark 15:3
The story Silver Blaze by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle centers around a clue of silence. Detective Sherlock Holmes investigates the theft of a prized racehorse, which had been guarded by a watchdog. In gathering evidence, Holmes learns that the dog didn’t bark during the intrusion. The detective deduces that the dog knew the culprit, and this leads to solving the crime.
For anyone investigating the identity of Jesus, the Bible holds many clues. One of them is His silence. Centuries before Jesus lived, the prophet Isaiah wrote of Him:“As a sheep before its shearers is silent, so He opened not His mouth”(53:7). The significance of this remained obscure until Jesus was brought before His accusers and“answered nothing” (Mark 15:3).
It’s a small but important piece of evidence, especially when combined with other clues: His birth in Bethlehem (Micah 5:2; Luke 2:4), His Davidic lineage (Isaiah 11:10; Luke 3:31), and the casting of lots for His clothes (Psalm 22:18; John 19:23-24). These and more than 200 other fulfilled prophecies provide overwhelming evidence of the identity of Jesus.
He is the Messiah, the Son of God, the Savior of all who put their faith in Him.
— David C. Egner
Think About It
Are you convinced that Jesus is the promised Savior?,
Have you accepted the forgiveness and eternal life He offers?
If you have doubts, read the gospel of John.
Believing Christ died—that’s history; believing Christ died for me—that’s salvation.
