The Fathers of the Church saw the Unnamed Servant as a symbolic "type" of God the Holy Spirit.  The Holy Spirit is the only person of the Holy Trinity who does not have a personal name.  Compare the major players in this narrative with the Most Holy Trinity and the Church:

Just Father Abraham Yahweh, God the Father
Righteous Son Isaac Jesus the Son
Servant Unnamed Servant Holy Spirit
The Bride Rebecca The Church

Question: "The Unnamed Servant" is a name that the Fathers of the Church used for God the Holy Spirit.  WHY?  What is his mission in the New Covenant?
Answer: He is the only person of the Trinity not to have a personal name.  It is His mission to bring the "Bride"= the Church, to the Bridegroom = Christ!  "However, when the Spirit of truth comes he will lead you to the complete truth..." John 16:13  [also see John 14:26; 15:26].
