The term is used in theology to explain the results of the death of Jesus Christ. Because of Christ’s death and coming back to life again, humanity is offered redemption through faith in Jesus Christ. Redemption is the payment of a ransom to God for the sins of humanity against God by Jesus Christ. It removes the obligation of payment, on humanity’s part, to God. In the end, humanity is free from the penalty of death through the action of Christ’s death and resurrection about 2,000 years ago. The requirements to receive this gift of redemption is to have faith in Jesus Christ as Lord of your life and repent of your sins to God the Father. The Scriptures listed here explain the reasons for the act of God’s redemption of humankind.  (Romans 6:23; Mark 1:14-15; Acts 20:20-21)
