The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world. John 1:29
To redeem is to buy back, to clear or to recover by payment or other satisfaction, to atone, to expiate (to make amends for, extinguish guilt).
Man is accountable for every sin committed; no man can successfully atone on his own and will face the judgment and wrath of God. Thankfully, Jesus, the son of God, the only perfect and righteous man, the spotless lamb, made the ultimate sacrifice and redeemed us from the penalty of our sin. He took the punishment for the ungodly by his brutal death on the cross. Jesus is the redeemer for all who call on his name.
