Freedom is something that many people take for granted—unless,
of course, they have ever been without it. Most of us assume
we have always been free, but perhaps we have never considered
freedom from a spiritual perspective. Jesus said He came to set the
prisoner free, and He certainly wasn’t talking about a jail-break at
Alcatraz. He came to set us free from our bondage to sin and death.
This quarter’s lessons use the lens of liberation, Christian freedom, to
examine and experience the nature of God who acts to deliver and
free people in different situations. This liberation is experienced in
the story of the Passover and in the good news of the Resurrection. Liberation
is also experienced in God’s new covenant community.
