There are a number of places in the Old Testament where we can learn about Jesus, and Isaiah is one of those places. Isaiah 42:1-9 is all about Jesus. What we in this passage is God's description of Jesus (He refers to Jesus as "My Servant"), and then God's words about what Jesus will do hundreds of years before Jesus comes to earth to live among us. For me, verses 6 and 7 were significant. "I will give you as a covenant for the people, a light for the nations, to open the eyes that are blind."
