Redemption through Christ

Redemption often involves the concept o purchasing something back that has been lost, by the payment of a ransom.  It can mean a deliverance from some sort of confinement; such is the case with the deliverance of the children of Israel from their bondage to slavery in Egypt (Exodus 14:29-30; 15;2) 

There are many passages in the New Testament that represent Christ’s sufferings as a ransom or price, and the result secured is a purchase or redemption (Acts 20:28 ;1; Corinthians 6: 19-20; Galations  3;13, 4:4-5, Ephesians 1:7, Colossians, 1:14:1,  Timothy 2 – 5-6, Titus 2:14:  Hebrews 9:12, 1 Peter 1:18-19,  Revelation 5:9)  The idea running through all these texts is that of payment made for our redemption,  Jesus paid the penalty for our sin and redeemed us.

The penalty for our sin and rebellion is death: Jesus stepped in and laid down His life and took the penalty we deserve.  The debt against us is not viewed as simply cancelled but as fully paid.  Both the Old and New Testaments proclaim salvation as an accomplished fact.  Christ’s blood or life, which He surrendered for us, is the “ransom” by which we are freed from sin.  “Blood” is mentioned 460 times in the Bible.  Fourteen times in the New Testament, Jesus spoke of His own blood.  Why?  Because by the shedding of His blood on the cross, He accomplished the salvation of everyone who believes.
