How is the death of Jesus a corresponding ransom?
As a ransom, Jesus Christ gave His life. So, in what way is His death a corresponding ransom?
We commit numerous sins because we are sinners, and this makes Jehovah unhappy. However, we can have a close friendship with God if we sincerely repent of our sins, ask Jehovah to forgive us through Jesus Christ, and make every effort to avoid committing the same errors in the future. (1 John 2:1) The Bible says: “Christ died once for all time for sins, a righteous person for unrighteous ones, in order to lead you to God.”—1 Peter 3:18.
So that “everyone exercising faith in [Jesus] might not be destroyed but enjoy everlasting life,” Jehovah sent Jesus to offer his sinless human life. (John 3:16) Jehovah will soon remove all the negative effects brought on by Adam’s disobedience as a result of what Jesus accomplished. Consequently, if we put our trust in Jesus’ atonement, we will be able to live eternally on a paradise earth. —Isaiah 65:21–23
Adam was a Perfect Man who brought sin into the world. Jesus was a Perfect Man, and through Him, Everlasting life [Salvation] was restored to Mankind. It would be impossible and unthinkable for an imperfect man to restore what a perfect Man lost [salvation] to mankind. In this way, Jesus’ death was an accurately corresponding ransom.
