Great Doctrines of The Bible by Dr. James Modlish

(Rom. 3:24)
"Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:"



Intro: 1864 Webster's dictionary definition:

"Repurchase of captured goods or prisoners; the act of procuring the deliverance of persons or things from the possession and power of captors by the payment of an equivalent."



A. To completely comprehend redemption, we must understand what state we are being redeemed, or bought back from!

[1]. The curse of the Law - (Gal. 3:13)

[2]. Bondage of the world and sin - (Gal. 4:3,9; 5:1)

B. The price of redemption!
[1]. (1 Peter 1:18, 19)
[2]. Silver and gold cannot redeem us, they fall under the curse of (Gen. 3:7)
[3]. (Rev. 5:9 - Rom. 3:24,25)



The indwelling Spirit is a testimony to the fact that someday God will even redeem out corruptible bodies (Rom. 8:23; Eph. 1:14).



A. It was necessary that the one who did the work of redeeming the slave be the kinsman of the slave. (Lev 25:47-49; Ruth 3:9) Jesus Christ is our kinsman redeemer (Heb. 2:14) - Jesus is related to men because He became flesh - hence He is eligible to be our redeemer.

B. Kinsman must have the price and be able to redeem! (Lev. 25:50-53; Ruth 4:9,10). Christ was willing (Heb. 10:7; Lk. 22:42; Matt. 16:23).
C. The kinsman redeemer should not himself need the redemption which he purposes to provide for another. A slave could not redeem another slave (Heb. 4:14; 1 Pet. 2:21-25).
