Sin and The Kinsman Redeemer
There are four qualities necessary for a kinsman to redeem a lost inheritance: be near of kin, have the price of redemption, voluntarily pay the redemption price, and actually pay it. Jesus, as the substance of God’s life, struck a tent in human flesh and became near of kin. He lived the perfect life and fulfilled the Law thus having the second quality price of redemption. He could have gone back to heaven (as witnessed by His prayer in John 17) in obedience to the Father and had his glory completely restored. But instead, He voluntarily went to the cross and paid the price for our lost inheritance. Deuteronomy 25; Ruth. VF-0399. © Copyright 1984.
