    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Romans 3:24

    Verse 24. Being justified freely by his
    grace] So far from being able to attain the glory of God by their obedience, they are all guilty: and, to be saved, must be freely pardoned by God's grace; which is shown to them who believe, through the redemption, apolutrwsewv, the ransom price, which is in the sacrifice of Christ Jesus. The original is compounded of apo, from, and lutrow, I redeem, and properly means the price laid down for the redemption of a captive. Comprehendit haec Christi apolutrwsiv, quicquid is docuit, fecit et passus est, eo consilio, ut homines malis liberati, praecipue peccato, malorum fonte immunes, veram felicitatem adipiscerentur. - Rosenmuller. This redemption of Christ comprehends whatsoever he taught, did, or suffered, in order to free men from evil; especially to free them from sin, the source of evils; that they might attain true felicity. And that it here means the liberation purchased by the blood- shedding of Christ, is evident from Eph. i. 7: We have REDEMPTION, apolutrwsin dia tou aimatov autou, THROUGH HIS BLOOD, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace. See also Col. i. 14, where the same words are found.

    lutra according to Suidas, is misqov, h ta parecomena uper eleuqeriav, epi tw lutrwsasqai barbarwn douleiav? A reward; or the price given to be redeemed from the slavery of the barbarians.

    Schleusner, under the word apolutrwsiv, says, Negari quidem non potest, hanc vocem proprie notare redemptionem ejus, qui captivus detinetur, sive bello, sive alio captus sit modo, quae fit per pretti solutionem; quo sensu verbum apolutrow legitur haud raro in Scripp.

    Graecis. No man certainly can deny that this word properly means the redemption of a captive, (whether he may have been taken in war or in any other way,) which is procured by the payment of a price. That the word also means any deliverance, even where no price is paid down, nobody will dispute; but that it means redemption by a price laid down, and the redemption of the soul by the price of the death of Christ, the above scriptures sufficiently prove.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 24. Being justified freely by his grace , etc..] The matter of justification is before expressed, and the persons that share in this blessing are described; here the several causes of it are mentioned. The moving cause of it is the free grace of God; for by the grace of God here, is not meant the Gospel, or what some men call the terms of the Gospel, and the constitution of it; nor the grace of God infused into the heart; but the free love and favour of God, as it is in his heart; which is wonderfully displayed in the business of a sinner's justification before him: it appears in his resolving upon the justification of his chosen ones in Christ; in fixing on the method of doing it; in setting forth and pre-ordaining Christ to be the ransom; in calling Christ to engage herein; in Christ's engaging as a surety for his people, and in the Father's sending him to bring in everlasting righteousness; in Christ's coming to do it, and in the gracious manner in which he wrought it out; in the Father's gracious acceptation, imputation, and donation of it; in the free gift of the grace of faith, to apprehend and receive it; and in the persons that partake of it, who are of themselves sinners and ungodly. The meritorious cause of justification is, the redemption that is in Jesus Christ : redemption supposes a former state of captivity to sin, Satan, and the law, in which God's elect were by nature, and is a deliverance from it; it is of a spiritual nature, chiefly respects the soul, and is plenteous, complete, and eternal: this is in and by Christ; he was called unto it, was sent to effect it, had a right unto it, as being the near kinsman; and was every way fit for it, being both God and man; and has by his sufferings and death obtained it: now, as all the blessings of grace come through redemption by Christ, so does this of justification, and after this manner; Christ, as a Redeemer, had the sins of his people laid on him, and they were bore by him, and took away; the sentence of the law's condemnation was executed on him, as standing in their legal place and stead; and satisfaction was made by him for all offences committed by them, which was necessary, that God might appear to be just, in justifying all them that believe: nor is this any objection or contradiction to the free grace of God, in a sinner's justification; since it was grace in God to provide, send, and part with his Son as a Redeemer, and to work out righteousness; it was grace in Christ, to come and give himself a sacrifice, and obtain salvation and righteousness, not for angels, but for men, and for some of them, and not all; and whatever this righteousness, salvation, and redemption cost Christ, they are all free to men.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 21-26 - Must
    guilty man remain under wrath? Is the wound for ever incurable No; blessed be God, there is another way laid open for us. This is the righteousness of God; righteousness of his ordaining, and providing and accepting. It is by that faith which has Jesus Christ for it object; an anointed Saviour, so Jesus Christ signifies. Justifyin faith respects Christ as a Saviour, in all his three anointed offices as Prophet, Priest, and King; trusting in him, accepting him, an cleaving to him: in all these, Jews and Gentiles are alike welcome to God through Christ. There is no difference, his righteousness is upo all that believe; not only offered to them, but put upon them as crown, as a robe. It is free grace, mere mercy; there is nothing in u to deserve such favours. It comes freely unto us, but Christ bought it and paid the price. And faith has special regard to the blood of Christ, as that which made the atonement. God, in all this, declare his righteousness. It is plain that he hates sin, when nothing les than the blood of Christ would satisfy for it. And it would not agre with his justice to demand the debt, when the Surety has paid it, an he has accepted that payment in full satisfaction.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    24. Being justified. The fact that they are justified in this extraordinary way shows that they must have

    Freely (dwrean). Gratuitously. Compare Matt. x. 8; John xv. 25; 2 Corinthians xi. 7; Apoc. xxi. 6.

    Grace (cariti). See on Luke i. 30.

    Redemption (apolutrwsewv). From ajpolutrow to redeem by paying the lutron price. Mostly in Paul. See Luke xxi. 28; Heb. ix. 15; xi. 35. The distinction must be carefully maintained between this word and lutron ransom. The Vulgate, by translating both redemptio, confounds the work of Christ with its result. Christ's death is nowhere styled lutrwsiv redemption. His death is the lutron ransom, figuratively, not literally, in the sense of a compensation; the medium of the redemption, answering to the fact that Christ gave Himself for us.

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    3:24 {Being justified} (dikaioumenoi). Present passive participle of dikaiow, to set right, repeated action in each case, each being set right. {Freely} (dwrean). As in #Ga 2:21. {By his grace} (tei autou cariti). Instrumental case of this wonderful word caris which so richly expresses Paul's idea of salvation as God's free gift. {Through the redemption} (dia ts apolutrwsews). A releasing by ransom (apo, lutrwsis from lutrow and that from lutron, ransom). God did not set men right out of hand with nothing done about men's sins. We have the words of Jesus that he came to give his life a ransom (lutron) for many (#Mr 10:45; Mt 20:28). lutron is common in the papyri as the purchase-money in freeing slaves (Deissmann, _Light from the Ancient East_, pp. 327f.). {That is in Christ Jesus} (ti en Christ"i iesou). There can be no mistake about this redemption. It is like #Joh 3:16.
