Beloved Names of God....Ransom

 

Beloved Names of God

 

Ransom

"The Son of man came...to give His life a ransom for many."
Mark 10:45
 
  • Name of God the Son
  • Jesus is referred to as 'ransom" three times in the New Testament. In the Old Testament, Elihu refers to a Christlike "ransom" (Job 33:24), and in Hosea, God says, "I will ransom them from the power of the grave"(13:14 KJV).
  • A ransom is traditionally a price paid by one for the freedom of another.
  • James and John asked to sit beside Jesus in heaven. The other disciples were annoyed by this, but Jesus assured them that there would be no hierarchy or position of power to strive for in heaven. 
Christ is set forth as the penalty paid for the sins of the world. As we were sinners under the judgement wrath of God, He took our place and paid the penalty and the price of our deliverance with His own blood. Listen to the drops of blood as they fall from hands and feet and wounded side! They voice the words "The ransom price for my sins and for the sins of the whole world." Would that men and women everywhere would believe in and receive it.
