πŸ‘‘ Numbered With The Transgressors

β€œAnd the Scripture was fulfilled, which saith, And He was numbered with the transgressors” (MarkΒ 15:28).

The progressive fulfillment of this passage from Isaiah 53 is the amazing story of our Lord’s three baptisms. First, this prophecy must be applied to our Lord’s incarnation. Born a babe at Bethlehem, He was baptized into the human race, becoming, not merely one with us, but one of us, a true human being, though still also β€œvery God.” This is how He was first β€œnumbered with the transgressors.”

Later the Lord was baptized again, this time with water, by John the Baptist. John’s baptism was unto β€œrepentance for the remission of sins” and those who responded came to his baptism β€œconfessing their sins” (Mark 1:4,5). Little wonder that John at first refused to baptize this sinless One, saying: β€œI have need to be baptized of Thee, and comest Thou to me?” But the Lord insisted, saying: β€œThus it becometh us to fulfill all righteousness” (Matt. 3:13-15). Thus our Lord joined repentant sinners in baptism and was, in this practical way, β€œnumbered with the transgressors.”

But after His baptism into the human race and His subsequent baptism with water, our Lord spoke of a third baptism, saying: β€œI have a baptism to be baptized with, and how am I straitened [Lit., β€œWhat a spot I am in”] till it be accomplished!” (LukeΒ 12:50). This third baptism was, of course, His death at Calvary, where He was baptized into God’s judgment upon sin in order that He might save us from it.

Finally, then, Isaiah 53:12 was fulfilled, for it is in connection with His death at Calvary that Mark 15:27,28 says:

β€œAnd with Him they crucify two thieves; the one on His right hand, and the other on His left. And the Scripture was fulfilled, which saith, And He was numbered with the transgressors.” source

Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting. — Galatians 6:7-8
