Consider Jesus: Deliverer

Let us continue to “consider Jesus.” (Heb. 3:1) 

Rom. 11:26“and thus all Israel will be saved; just as it is written, “THE DELIVERER WILL COME FROM ZION, HE WILL REMOVE UNGODLINESS FROM JACOB.”

This is quoting Isa. 59:20. “Deliverer” is often translated as “Redeemer” (as it is in the Isaiah passage quoted in Romans 11:26 as “deliverer.”) Jesus is the one and only hope of deliverance from our sins. “Grace to you and peace from God our Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who gave Himself for our sins, that He might deliver us out of this present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father, to whom be the glory forevermore. Amen.” (Gal. 1:3-5)

Let us consider Jesus who is the great king (in the likeness of David), the light for us, and our deliverer from sin by the covenant that He alone could bring us.
