  • Ransom
  • The release of property or a person in return for payment of a demanded price. The price or payment of money demanded or paid for such release. Used most often as the positive representation of redemption (ex: Exodus 21:30, 'sum of money'; Numbers 35:31-32, Isaiah 43:3, 'ransom'). In the New Testament, Matthew 20:28 and Mark 10:45 describe ransom as the "payment of money."
