For something to be a legitimate prophecy, it must meet several criteria:

It must actually be a prophecy. Not a documentation of events that is misinterpreted as a prophecy after a similar event occurs later.

It cannot be something that people are already working toward.

It must be written before the events that it predicts.

The predicted events must actually occur.

The prediction must be both falsifiable and verifiable.

It must not be overly vague.

It must not predict a likely event.

It must not be self-fulfilling.

All the so called prophecies in the Bible are guilty of violating at least one of these, but more often several of these.
And isaiah 53?

Israel itself was the "suffering servant" in Isaiah.

The previous chapters of Isaiah leading up to 53, are talking about Israel as the suffering servant. There is no mention that chapter 53 is a prophecy about Jesus. It is still about Israel.

Here's just one example:

Isaiah 44:21 - Remember these things, O Jacob, and Israel, for you are my servant; I formed you; you are my servant; O Israel, you will not be forgotten by me.
