Meaning(s) of the name Ransom

Some possible meanings

The name might have Christian meaning

According to Jay Sklar professor of Old Testament at Covenant Theological Seminary, in the Old Testament the idea of “ransom” is different from the modern use of the term. Today, a ransom is given to a wrong-doer in return for something the wrong-doer took from an innocent party.

By contrast, in the Old Testament, a ransom is an act of grace where the *guilty* party pays the innocent party, and the innocent party can (but does not have to) accept it in lieu of legal action — up to and including capital punishment on the guilty party — for the wrong-doing. Likewise, in the New Testament, Jesus’ dying on the cross is considered a “ransom for many” in this sense, but with the twist of the son of the offended party himself paying for the offenders.


Another Possible Christian Meaning
