Justification through the Blood, Sanctification through the Spirit.

He-is-Risen

Being justified freely by his grace, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus: whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God: to declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus. Romans 3:24-26 KJV.

Redemption, apolutrosis, Strong’s #629. “To deliver by paying a price.” The N.T. records the fulfillment of the O.T. types and prophecies of redemption through the sacrifice of Christ. The completed truth is set forth in the three words which are translated redemption:

  1. Agorazo, “to purchase in the market.” The underlying thought is of a slave market. The subjects of redemption are “sold under sin” (Romans 7:14), but are moreover, under sentence of death (Ezk. 18:4; John 3:18, 19; Rom.3:19; Gal.3:10). And the purchase price is the blood of Redeemer who dies in their stead (Gal.3:13; 2Cor.5:21; Mat. 20:28; Mk. 10:45; 1 Tim. 2:6; 1Pet.1:18).
  2. Exagorazo, “to buy out of the market.” The redeemed are never again to be exposed to sale.
  3. Lutro, “To loose,” “To set free by paying a price (John 8:32; Gal.4:4,5, 31,5:31Rom.8:21). Redemption is by sacrifice and by power (Ex. 14:30); Christ paid the price, The Holy Spirit makes deliverance actual in experience (Rom.8:2).

He is our Redemption, He is Risen, let us rejoice.
