Word of the Week - Savior

June 4, 2018

We are beginning a new series for our Word of the Week. Over the next couple of months, we are going to be focusing in on the various names and titles of Jesus. This week, Pastor Ben Libby takes us through a study of "Savior." A savior is someone who saves either from physical or spiritual enemies. The Judges in the Old Testament were saviors that God would appoint to deliver the people of Israel from their enemies. Later, the kings would fill that role. But these saviors were only types that pointed to the one, true Savior, Jesus Christ. The name Jesus means "Jehovah is salvation" or "Jehovah saves." While the judges and kings saved the people from physical enemies, Jesus came to save people from their sins.
