What redemption is all about

Redemption is a word with a Latin root and its writing for the time was expressed redemptio . It refers to the action and subsequent consequence of redeeming, that is, saving someone from a punishment , elevating that person, ending a punishment as a result of an action.

From another point of view, the redemption refers to the release of mortgaged titles or goods or, failing that, to make the purchase of goods that had been sold. From the point of view of Christianity, redemption refers to the action of Christ, through his doctrine, his crucifixion and subsequent death, who managed to redeem all of humanity from their sins.
