THE PROMISE OF THE CROSS: RANSOMED While we may think first of a kidnapping when we hear the word “ransom” in the ancient world it was the price paid to set someone free from “slavery.” It was not uncommon in that day for a person to become an indentured servant or a “slave” in order to pay off a debt that he or she had incurred. Born into the slavery of sin Jesus paid the price for our freedom. And it was not gold or silver but his own holy, precious blood.
