Apolutrosis (Redemption) - Poem by Cynthia BuhainBaello

In utter humility,
Yeshua came to be
Taking on humanity,
To ransom you and me.

From Genesis it was done
The apolutrosis of man-
The Godhead devised the plan,
And so the Son became Man.

Jesus Christ, One Redeemer
And His Blood, our Purifier,
The One and only Mediator
And there is no other Savior.

'Tetelestai! ' Jesus cried-
'It is finished! ' then He died,
Eternal debt was put aside,
And so in Him will Truth abide.

Man's false doctrine tries to mix
A human being as 'mediatrix'
Redemption's glory to affix-
To a woman unaware of the fix.

'I Am the Lord there is no other,
Apart from Me there is no God.'
Why give glory to the mother
When only Jesus shed His Blood?


'Tetelestai' -Hebrew for 'fully paid'
'Apolutrosis' -Greek for 'full ransom paid'
'I Am the Way, the Truth, and the Life,
no one comes to the Father except through Me.'
JOHN 14: 6

'For there is One Mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, who gave Himself as a ransom for all men - the testimony given in its proper time.'

2 TIMOTHY 2: 5
