Why I believe Isaiah 53 doesn't refer to Jesus:

13 See my servant will act wisely;
he will be raised and lifted up and highly exalted.

14 Just as there were many who were appalled at him
his appearance was so disfigured beyond that of any man
and his form marred beyond human likeness—

15 so will he sprinkle many nations,
and kings will shut their mouths because of him.
For what they were not told, they will see,
and what they have not heard, they will understand. (Isaiah 52: 13-15)

Offcourse he was higly exalted ::::::: John 12:
12 ΒΆ On the next day much people that were come to the feast, when they heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem, 13Took branches of palm trees, and went forth to meet him, and cried, Hosanna: Blessed is the King of Israel that cometh in the name of the Lord. 14And Jesus, when he had found a young ass, sat thereon; as it is written,

Yes he was lifted up, both by the men as above, by himself (over the sea) and by the father ( ACTS 1:. 9And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was taken up; and a cloud received him out of their sight. 10And while they looked stedfastly toward heaven as he went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel; 11 Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven.

Yes. his appearance was so .. because

John 19:1 1Then Pilate therefore took Jesus, and scourged him.

8 By oppression and judgment he was taken away.
And who can speak of his descendants?
For he was cut off from the land of the living;
for the transgression of my people he was stricken.

9 He was assigned a grave with the wicked,
and with the rich in his death,
though he had done no violence,
nor was any deceit in his mouth.

10 Yet it was the LORD's will to crush him and cause him to suffer,
and though the LORD makes his life a guilt offering,
he will see his offspring and prolong his days,
and the will of the LORD will prosper in his hand.

Yes ! we are his discendants. surely...John 15:5 5 I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing. ( Think another way of the sentence . Its a question asking about his discendants. If you mean it by flesh then the answere is He had no biological discendant)

Yes ! he was assigned a grave with the wicked. Who told you that both them were saved? Only one was saved . And the other is still a wicked . like you

The answere for your next Emphasized verse is already stated. I am sure that your blasphemy will be forgiven.

Yes! he had seen his offspring : The Church>>>>>>>>>>>John 15:5 5 I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.

Yes! His days were prolonged : 40 days , that too even after death@@@@@@ Hallellujjjahhh

And he is still living. Even you believe that he is to come to judge on the judgement day.

I think its ok for now.

God bless you.
