Salvation

SALVATION (Heb. yeshû‘âh, Gr. sōtēria). What [[God]] in [[mercy]] does for his sinful, finite [[human]] creatures is presented in the [[Bible]] through a variety of [[Metaphor|metaphors]], images, and models (e.g., [[redemption]] and [[justification]]). Of these, none is more important or significant than [[salvation]]: thus God is called “[[Savior]]” (Hos.13.4; Luke.1.47) and portrayed as the “God of salvation” (Ps.68.19-Ps.68.20; Luke.3.6; Acts.28.28).
