Redeemer of Israel

“Redeemer of Israel” is one of the names of the LORD (Yahweh or Jehovah). It occurs in a passage in which Yahweh (Jehovah) speaks to His chosen One the Servant. In the same Bible verse, God uses two other unusual names for Jesus (Yeshua‘): the despised One and the Servant of rulers.

The Old Testament often simply calls God the Redeemer. In Jewish culture the role of the redeemer (go’el) was clearly understood. Their primary responsibility was to “redeem” family property or buy back a relative from slavery or debt (Lev. 25, 27 and Ruth).

Isaiah often linked the title Redeemer to that of Holy One of Israel.

Bible reference: Isa. 49:7

Thus says the Lord, the Redeemer of Israel and its Holy One,
To the despised One,
To the One abhorred by the nation,
To the Servant of rulers,
“Kings will see and arise,
Princes will also bow down,
Because of the Lord who is faithful, the Holy One of
Israel who has chosen You.” (Isaiah 49:7)
