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.
After the suffering of his soul,
he will see the light of life and be satisfied;
by his knowledge my righteous servant will justify many,
and he will bear their iniquities. 
Therefore I will give him a portion among the great, 
and he will divide the spoils with the strong,
because he poured out his life unto death, 
and was numbered with the transgressors. 
For he bore the sin of many, 
and made intercession for the transgressors.  
Isaiah 53:10-12 

It is written: 'And he was numbered with the transgressors'; and I tell you that this must be fulfilled in me.  Yes, what is written about me is reaching fulfillment. 
Luke 22:37 
How great is the love the Father has lavished on us that we should be called children of God.  And that is what we are!
I John 3:1a

Jesus, numbered with the transgressors, so that we could be numbered with the children of God.

He replied, “I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven. 19 I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you. 20 However, do not rejoice that the spirits submit to you, but rejoice that your names are written in heaven.”
Luke 10:18-20
