756 words - 4 pages In Mark 10:45 Jesus says, " For the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many." Jesus used the metaphor of ransom because it would have had a very specific meaning for people living in the first century (Dr. David D'Andre).

Rephrasing Mark 20:45, it can be seen, that the phrase "to give his life as a ransom to many" can be equalized to "giving his life to redeem many".
