Messiah was to be rejected by his own people

Messiah was to be rejected by his own people

Isaiah 53:1
New American Standard Bible (NASB)

The Suffering Servant
53 (A)Who has believed our message?
And to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed?

Isaiah 53:3
New American Standard Bible (NASB)

He was (A)despised and forsaken of men,
A man of [a]sorrows and (B)acquainted with [b]grief;
And like one from whom men hide their face
He was (C)despised, and we did not (D)esteem Him.

New Testament Fulfilment

Matthew 26:3-4
New American Standard Bible (NASB)

(A)Then the chief priests and the elders of the people were gathered together in (B)the court of the high priest, named (C)Caiaphas; and they (D)plotted together to seize Jesus by stealth and kill Him.

John 12:37-43
New American Standard Bible (NASB)

37 But though He had performed so many [a]signs before them, yet they were not believing in Him. 38 This was to fulfill the word of Isaiah the prophet which he spoke: “(A)Lord, who has believed our report? And to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed?” 39 For this reason they could not believe, for Isaiah said again, 40 (B)He has blinded their eyes and He (C)hardened their heart, so that they would not see with their eyes and perceive with their heart, and [b]be converted and I heal them.” 41 These things Isaiah said because (D)he saw His glory, and (E)he spoke of Him. 42 Nevertheless (F)many even of (G)the rulers believed in Him, but (H)because of the Pharisees they were not confessing Him, for fear that they would be [c](I)put out of the synagogue; 43 (J)for they loved the [d]approval of men rather than the [e]approval of God

Acts 4:1-12
New American Standard Bible (NASB)

Peter and John Arrested
As they were speaking to the people, the priests and (A)the captain of the temple guard and (B)the Sadducees (C)came up to them, being greatly disturbed because they were teaching the people and proclaiming [a](D)in Jesus the resurrection from the dead. And they laid hands on them and (E)put them in jail until the next day, for it was already evening. But many of those who had heard the [b]message believed; and (F)the number of the men came to be about five thousand.
On the next day, their (G)rulers and elders and scribes were gathered together in Jerusalem; and (H)Annas the high priest was there, and (I)Caiaphas and John and Alexander, and all who were of high-priestly descent. When they had placed them in the center, they began to inquire, “By what power, or in what name, have you done this?” Then Peter, [c](J)filled with the Holy Spirit, said to them, “[d](K)Rulers and elders of the people, if we are [e]on trial today for (L)a benefit done to a sick man, [f]as to how this man has been made well, 10 let it be known to all of you and to all the people of Israel, that [g](M)by the name of Jesus Christ the Nazarene, whom you crucified, whom (N)God raised from the dead—[h]by [i]this name this man stands here before you in good health. 11 [j](O)He is the (P)stone which was (Q)rejected by you, the builders, but which became the chief corner stone. 12 And there is salvation in (R)no one else; for there is no other name under heaven that has been given among men by which we must be saved.”
