The Sixth Miracle of Messiah:

Mattai 8:16-17

וַיְהִי לְעֵת עֶרֶב וַיָּבִיאוּ אֵלָיו רַבִּים אֲחוּזֵי שֵׁדִים וַיְגָרֶשׁ אֵת־הָרוּחוֹת בִּדְבַר פִּיו וַיְרַפֵּא אֵת כָּל־הַחוֹלִים׃ לְמַלּאת אֵת אֲשֶׁר דִּבֶּר יְשַׁעְיָהוּ הַנָּבִיא לֵאמֹר חֳלָיֵנוּ הוּא נָשָׂא וּמַכְאֹבֵינוּ סְבָלָם׃

לְעֵת עֶרֶב הֵבִיאוּ אֵלָיו רַבִּים שֶׁהָיוּ אֲחוּזֵי שֵׁדִים וְהוּא גֵּרֵשׁ אֶת הָרוּחוֹת בִּדְבַר פִּיו וְרִפֵּא אֶת כָּל הַחוֹלִים, לְקַיֵּם אֶת אֲשֶׁר נֶאֱמַר בְּפִי יְשַׁעְיָהוּ הַנָּבִיא: “חֳלָיֵנוּ הוּא נָשָׂא וּמַכְאֹבֵינוּ סְבָלָם.” פ

At evening time, they brought Him (the Mashiach) many who were gripped by demons, and He drove out the spirits with the word of His mouth, and He healed all the sick, fulfilling what Yeshayah the Prophet spoke, saying, “He has lifted our sicknesses and carried our sufferings.”

Markos 1:32-34

וַיְהִי בָעֶרֶב כְּבוֹא הַשָּׁמֶשׁ וַיָּבִיאוּ אֵלָיו אֵת כָּל־הַחוֹלִים וְאֵת אֲחוּזֵי הַשֵּׁדִים׃ וְכָל־הָעִיר נֶאֶסְפוּ יַחְדָּו פֶּתַח הַבַּיִת׃ וַיְּרַפֵּא רַבִּים אֲשֶׁר הָיוּ חוֹלִים חֳלָיִים שׁוֹנִים וַיְגָרֵשׁ שֵׁדִים הַרְבֵּה וְלֹא־נָתַן אֶת־הַשֵּׁדִים לְדַבֵּר כִּי יְדָעֻהוּ׃

בָּעֶרֶב, עִם שְׁקִיעַת הַשֶּׁמֶשׁ, הֵבִיאוּ אֵלָיו אֶת כָּל הַחוֹלִים וַאֲחוּזֵי הַשֵּׁדִים. כָּל הָעִיר נֶאֶסְפָה אֶל פֶּתַח הַבַּיִת וְהוּא רִפֵּא רַבִּים שֶׁהָיוּ חוֹלִים בְּמַחֲלוֹת לְמִינֵיהֶן; גַּם שֵׁדִים רַבִּים גֵּרֵשׁ וְלֹא הִנִּיחַ לַשֵּׁדִים לְדַבֵּר מִפְּנֵי שֶׁהִכִּירוּהוּ. פ

In the evening, about sunset, they brought to Him all those who were sick and gripped by demons. The whole town was gathered together at the entrance of the house. He healed many who were sick with various illnesses, and He drove out many demons, but He did not permit the demons to speak, for they knew Him.

Lukas 4:40-41

וְהָיָה כֹּל אֲשֶׁר לָהֶם חֹלִים חֳלָיִים שׁוֹנִים וַיְבִיאוּם אֵלָיו כְּבוֹא הַשָּׁמֶשׁ וַיָּשֶׂם אֶת־יָדָיו עַל־כָּל־אֶחָד מֵהֶם וַיְרַפֵּא אוֹתָם׃ וְגַם־שֵׁדִים יָצְאוּ מֵרַבִּים וְהֵם קֹרְאִים וְאֹמְרִים אַתָּה הוּא (הַמָּשִׁיחַ) בֶּן־הָאֱלֹהִים וַיִּגְעַר־בָּם וְלֹא נְתָנָם לְדַבֵּר כִּי יָדְעוּ אֲשֶׁר הוּא הַמָּשִׁיחַ׃

עִם שְׁקִיעַת הַשֶּׁמֶשׁ, כָּל הָאֲנָשִׁים אֲשֶׁר הָיוּ לָהֶם חוֹלִים בְּמַחֲלוֹת לְמִינֵיהֶן הֵבִיאוּ אוֹתָם אֵלָיו. הוּא שָׂם אֶת יָדָיו עַל כָּל אֶחָד מֵהֶם וְרִפֵּא אוֹתָם. מֵרַבִּים יָצְאוּ שֵׁדִים כְּשֶׁהֵם קוֹרְאִים “אַתָּה הוּא בֶּן־הָאֱלֹהִים!” אַךְ הוּא גָּעַר בָּהֶם וְלֹא הִנִּיחַ לָהֶם לְדַבֵּר, כִּי יָדְעוּ שֶׁהוּא הַמָּשִׁיחַ. פ

All those who had people afflicted with various ailments brought them to Him at about sunset (while the sun was setting), and He placed His hands upon every one of them and healed them. Demons also came out from many, and they were calling out and saying, “You are (Ha-Mashiach) the Ben Ha-Elohim!” He reprimanded them and did not allow them to speak, because they knew that He was the Mashiach.

Opening-up questions and clues:

The following opening-up questions and clues are provided as an introduction to this study on the 6th Miracle of Messiah:

Look at the symbolism of the above miracle narrative: At what location does the miracle occur? At what time does this miracle occur?  When does the Hebrew day begin? What day of the week is this the beginning of? Clue: On what day of the week did the Mashiach resurrect from the dead? Who are the people who are being referenced to here? What physical illnesses and spiritual conditions are the Yehudim of Capernaum being healed of? Was this an individual or corporate healing? Why is this distinction important to know? Why did the Messiah lay His hands on the people when He healed them? What are the hands a symbol of? Which letter (pictograph) in the ancient Hebrew alphabet (that Moses wrote the Torah in) is configured in the shape of a (closed) extended hand? Whose Hand is the Mashiach an extension of? Clue: Psalm 16:11; 18:35; 20:6; 44:3; 89:13; 138:7; Isaiah 41:10; 48:13. Clue: It is written:

וַאֲנִי אֶתֵּן לָהֶן חַיֵּי עוֹלָם וְלֹא תֹאבַדְנָה לָנֶצַח וְאִישׁ לֹא־יַחֲטֹף אֶתְהֶן מִיָּדִי׃ הָאָב אֲשֶׁר נְתָנָן לִי גָּדוֹל הוּא עַל־כֹּל וְאִישׁ לֹא־יַחֲטֹף אֶתְהֶן מִיַּד הָאָב׃ אֲנִי וְאָבִי אֶחָד אֲנָחְנוּ׃

וַאֲנִי נוֹתֵן לָהֶן חַיֵּי עוֹלָם; וְלֹא תֹּאבַדְנָה לְעוֹלָם, אַף לֹא יַחֲטֹף אוֹתָן אִישׁ מִיָּדִי. אָבִי שֶׁנָּתַן אוֹתָן לִי גָּדוֹל מִכֹּל וְאֵין אִישׁ יָכוֹל לַחֲטֹף אוֹתָן מִיָּד הָאָב. אֲנִי וְהָאָב אֶחָד אֲנַחְנוּ.” פ

“I will give them eternal life, and they will not perish for eternity. No one will snatch them from My Hand. The Father who gave them to Me is greater than anyone; therefore, no one will snatch them from the Hand of My Father. I and My Father are One (אֶחָד-echad).” If one is without any sin whatsoever can it be said that such a one is in complete unity (echad) with Adonai? Clue: Yes. What Yehudi has ever rightfully made such a claim? Clue: Only One! If however one has sinned by breaking even the smallest of commandments can it be said that such a one is still in complete unity (echad) with Adonai? Clue: No. What Yehudi has never sinned and is completely blameless under the Law of Moses? Clue: Even Moses sinned. There is only One! What passage of Isaiah the prophet is being referenced in this miracle at the door of the house? What does Isaiah mean when he says:

אָכֵן חֳלָיֵנוּ הוּא נָשָׂא וּמַכְאֹבֵינוּ סְבָלָם וַאֲנַחְנוּ חֲשַׁבְנֻהוּ נָגוּעַ מֻכֵּה אֱלֹהִים וּמְעֻנֶּֽה׃

Surely our griefs (חֳלָיֵנוּ) He Himself bore,
And our sorrows (מַכְאֹבֵינוּ) He carried;
Yet we ourselves esteemed Him stricken (נָגוּעַ),
Smitten (אֲנַחְנוּ) of the Almighty, and afflicted (מְעֻנֶּֽה).

What does the interpretive phrase mean, “He has lifted our sicknesses and carried our sufferings”?

פחֳלָיֵנוּ הוּא נָשָׂא וּמַכְאֺבֵינוּ סְבָלָם.”פ

What Hebrew terms are present in the Isaiah 53:4 passage that support this interpretive claim? Therefore, what does Yeshayah say is the personal cost to the sinless Messiah for our (israel) receiving corporate healing and permanent deliverance from evil?
