This fulfilled the prophecy of Isaiah concerning him:
"Look at my Servant, whom I have chosen. He is my Beloved, and I am very pleased with him. I will put my Spirit upon him, and he will proclaim justice to the nations.
He will not fight or shout; he will not raise his voice in public.
He will not crush those who are weak, or quench the smallest hope, until he brings full justice with his final victory.
And his name will be the hope of all the world."
