1 Sara Di Diego = "This chapter is titled the Psalm of the Suffering Servant, who scholars believe to be referring to Jesus.  It seems to be directly addressing the messiah.  The meaning of messiah in Hebrew is "the anointed one".  Leaders (kings, leaders chosen by God, and sometimes priests) would get anointed to show they were selected by God.  Thus some scholars believe that the reference that Jesus is in the line of David means that he was anointed to be a leader, or king, just like King David.Work Cited: Segal, Alan F. Rebecca's Children: Judaism and Christianity in the Roman World.
