Redemption has many meanings that are relatively similar, but is generally used in the English language to suggest that there are efforts amongst a person or people within a particular faith to overcome their problems and short comings, and go on to achieve the moral positions that are exemplified within their faith. Redemption can be seen as somebody being saved, or becoming something that they should be. It’s essentially some kind of change, or a kind of bettering that may occur in an individual.

When you’re trying to find out the meaning of a word, one great tip is to go to In the search box, type ‘define:’ and then the word afterwards. So in your case you want to type ‘define: Redemption’ into the search box. This will not result in your getting a huge list of web pages, but will instead provide you with a number of definitions from a number of different sources. It’s a really quick and easy way to gain access to a definition if you don’t have a dictionary book at hand. Naturally, the Internet is able to provide you with as much information as the dictionary and more, and in fact you will find a number of articles, web pages and entries on the Internet that talk about the many different meanings (that differ only so slightly) associated with redemption.

If you want to read more about redemption in the world of theology and philosophy, then one other fantastic online source would be Wikipedia. Whilst many people worry about the credibility of the website, it must be pointed out that there is a huge team of people working on the website to ensure that every piece of information that is entered in to the Wikipedia website is completely correct and not misleading in any way.

Redemption has its origin in Latin and is taken from the word redēmptiō. It was obtained from the verb redimere which means to redeem. Later, it was adapted in Old French as redemption and by Middle English as redemcioun. It is obtained from the verb redeem. Redemption is the act of getting back the ownership of something or recovering something. The concerned thing could be something that is mortgaged or pawned.

When someone or something is held by someone, then the deliverance of that thing or person upon payment of money is termed as redemption. Redemption is also the payment of a duty to the government for the value of the bonds held. The salvation from sins that was attained through the sacrifice of Jesus Christ is also termed Redemption.
