Ransom, Redemption, and Forgiveness | More Than Words
More Than Words
We can’t understand the Bible without knowing the context of the WORDS.
In order to know what the words mean, we have to know what they MEANT.
1 Peter 1:18-19
“God paid a RANSOM” (NLT)
“You were REDEEMED” (NIV)
Three Primary Categories of Gospel Metaphors:
Redemption refers to freeing somebody from what holds them CAPTIVE.
Ransom refers to the PRICE paid.
Jesus sets you free from what owns you.
FORGIVENESS is a debt metaphor.
What do you OWE God?
