Redemption

By Fred Myers

Published on Jun 28, 2017

Redemption In our world, “redemption” refers most often to exchange of coupons for discounts on goods in a store, but to the Ephesians and to other contemporaries of Paul, “redemption” would have been used most frequently to buy someone out of slavery through payment. In the first century bc, because of the dominance of pirates in the eastern Mediterranean at that time, “redemption” often occurred in payment of ransom for someone who had been kidnapped. The most famous example of this was the kidnapping of a young Julius Caesar off the island of Pharmacusa; he avenged himself on his captors after his redemption by returning and crucifying them to the last man. Though pirates were no longer such a large a threat in Paul’s day, he does mention elsewhere “enslavers” as among “the lawless and disobedient … the ungodly and sinners” (1 Tim 1:9–10).
