The term “many” is a reference to Isaiah 53:11-12 where it did not mean for a few, but the outcome of Christ’s redemption, because God continues to give us the freedom to choose between the good and evil. Jesus used “many” when he instituted the Holy Eucharist. After blessing the cup, he said: “This is my blood of the covenant which will be shed for many” (Mk 14:24; Mt 26:28). The rabbis and the Qumran community used this term for the community of faith or the chosen people. Saint Paul also uses “all” and “many” as interchangeable terms in his letter to the Romans verses 18 and 19. So Jesus intended his redemption for all. Many will find salvation from him.
