God's word invites us to know Jesus in three ways: first, as the servant the prophet Isaiah describes; second, Lamb of God, as John the Baptist calls him, who takes away the sins of the world; and finally and most importantly, as the Son of God. Isaiah's servant has been formed from the womb not only to bring God's people back to God, but also to be a light of the nations. Jesus fulfills this prophecy by his suffering and dying for us and for all peoples.
