2 Thessalonians 1.10
The question posed by Isaiah 53 is answered in its corresponding book, 2 Thessalonians. It is not a KeyLink

transgression of my people was he stricken.
This is discussed in context of Spoke 9 of the Bible Wheel in the Obadiah article,
How Thou Art Cut off!. The idea of cutting off, and
its relation to the Covenant, originates in
