Our current series, on Truth for Today, is "Things which accompany salvation". The Scriptures themselves speak of the 'great salvation', which has reached us through the Gospel. We, who have experienced the saving grace of God, know something of its greatness, but it is only as we search the Scriptures and investigate its details that the magnitude of what God has brought to pass begins to dawn upon us.
In the latest uploaded broadcast, Redemption, Gordon Kell continues the series by looking at Redemption. The word used for redemption in the Bible means to buy something in the sense of buying it back. Some time ago it was quite common for families to go to a pawnbroker and pawn belongings when they were in financial difficulties. The pawn broking system was simple. People would hand over to the pawnbroker a valuable possession in exchange for money. Later, when they could afford it, they would "buy back" or "redeem" the goods. To buy back the possession two things were needed, firstly, the pawn ticket had to be produced as proof of ownership and secondly, the debt had to be paid in full. When both these things were done the possession was redeemed.
