David Baron (1857-1926) was born in Russia to Jewish parents. After studying Hebrew and Talmud in Yeshiva, he immigrated to Hull, England, where he accepted Yeshua (Jesus) as HaMeshiach Yisrael. After working with several missions to the Jews, he and C. A. Schönberger in 1893 founded the Hebrew Christian Testimony to Israel, a Jewish missionary organization in London.

He has written a number of books, including:

  • Rays of Messiah's Glory (1886)
  • The Jewish Problem: It's Solution or Israel's Present and Future (1891)
  • The Ancient Scriptures and the Modern Jew (1900)
  • Israel's Inalienable Possessions: The Gifts and the Calling of God Which are Without Repentance (1906)
  • The Shepherd of Israel and His Scattered Flock: A Solution of the Enigma of Jewish History (1910)
  • The Visions and Prophecies of Zechariah (1918)

Isaiah 53 has been described in a number of ways.

James Culross wrote, "Beyond question, this chapter is the heart of the Hebrew prophetic writings."

Walter Kaiser had a similar comment: "Undoubtedly, this is the summit of OT prophetic literature. Few passages can rival it for clarity on the suffering, death, burial, and resurrection of the Messiah."

David Baron himself writes in Chapter I of his commentary, "[Isaiah 53] is the heart and centre of all Old Testament prophecy."

Baron's commentary, The Servant of Jehovah: The Sufferings of the Messiah and the Glory That Should Follow, consists of two parts. Part I, which we have reprinted here, is "a critical examination of the non-Messianic interpretations of Isaiah LIII." There are four chapters in Part I, and they are reproduced here in their entirety: they are not condensations.

Part II consists of Baron's verse-by-verse exposition of Isaiah 52:13-53:12.
