The Essence of Redemption

The heart of the gospel is redemption, and the essence of redemption is the substitutionary sacrifice of Christ”. Thus, both the heart and essence of our redemption is our Redeemer Jesus Christ.

In Christian theology, redemption is a metaphor for what is achieved through the atonement; therefore, there is a metaphorical sense in which the death of Jesus pays the price of a ransom, releasing Christians from bondage to sin and death.
