Freed From Slavery

Jews celebrate the Passover as a yearly reminder of the time when God rescued them from slavery in Egypt. 

But Christians look to something else. The New Testament Passover is neither a day nor a ritual, but is Jesus himself. We look to Jesus because he is the only way we can be rescued from the slavery of sin.

The Freedom of the Person of Christ

It is necessary to grasp the meaning of three freedoms if we are going to be able to explain the full significance of freedom. These three freedoms are 1) divine freedom, 2) created freedom and 3) human freedom.

1) Divine freedom is to be understood as the uncreated freedom of the one, sovereign and free God who is the Creator and Redeemer of the world. Divine freedom, as uncreated freedom, is noncontingent freedom. This means that this type of freedom possesses the absolute freedom to exist. It depends on nothing outside of itself for its existence.
