Flashcards in Ransom Deck (15):
"For God loved the world so much that he gave his only-begotten Son, so that everyone exercising faith in him might not be destroyed but have everlasting life.
1 Peter 3:18
For Christ died once for all time for sins, a righteous person for unrighteous ones, in order to lead you to God. He was put to death in the flesh but made alive in the spirit.
By means of him we have the release by ransom through the blood of that one, yes, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his undeserved kindness.
Psalms 49:7, 8
None of them can ever redeem a brother
Or give to God a ransom for him,
(The ransom price for their life is so precious
That it is always beyond their reach);
1 Timothy 2:6
who gave himself a corresponding ransom for all—this is what is to be witnessed to in its own due time.
1 John 4:9, 10
By this the love of God was revealed in our case, that God sent his only-begotten Son into the world so that we might gain life through him.
The love is in this respect, not that we have loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as a propitiatory sacrifice for our sins.
For just as through the disobedience of the one man many were made sinners, so also through the obedience of the one person many will be made righteous.
1 Corinthians 15:21, 22
For since death came through a man, resurrection of the dead also comes through a man.
For just as in Adam all are dying, so also in the Christ all will be made alive.
By this “will” we have been sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all time.
Romans 3:23, 24
For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,
and it is as a free gift that they are being declared righteous by his undeserved kindness through the release by the ransom paid by Christ Jesus.
Colossians 1:13, 14
He rescued us from the authority of the darkness and transferred us into the kingdom of his beloved Son
by means of whom we have our release by ransom, the forgiveness of our sins.
Hebrews 9:13, 14
For if the blood of goats and of bulls and the ashes of a heifer sprinkled on those who have been defiled sanctifies for the cleansing of the flesh,
how much more will the blood of the Christ, who through an everlasting spirit offered himself without blemish to God, cleanse our consciences from dead works so that we may render sacred service to the living God?
As they continued eating, Jesus took a loaf, and after saying a blessing, he broke it, and giving it to the disciples, he said: “Take, eat. This means my body.”
And taking a cup, he offered thanks and gave it to them, saying: “Drink out of it, all of you,
for this means my ‘blood of the covenant,’ which is to be poured out in behalf of many for forgiveness of sins.
Just as the Son of man came, not to be ministered to, but to minister and to give his life as a ransom in exchange for many.”
