Salvation and Redemption

I’m working on the sermon I’ll be preaching at Resurrection the weekend after Easter and I’m interested in some feedback.

  1. Do you understand Salvation and Redemption to be synonomous?
  2. How do you define Salvation?
  3. How do you define Redemption?
  4. If you define them differently, what relationship do you see between the two?

Please post comments here and thanks in advance.

    From the lack of comments, I’m apparently not the only one struggling with your questions. I can’t give you definitions, but here’s what I’ve got. Redemption has the sense of a transaction–you give me something or do something for me, and I’ll give you something or do something for you in return–while salvation doesn’t. In Christian terms, I see redemption as a form or type of salvation. FWIW, I don’t care for either term.

    Redemption is a beautiful thing. I posted on the subject today.
