Redeemer 

Jesus' role as our redeemer is at the heart of Christian theology. This theme is powerfully expressed in the worship of the Episcopal Church. The collect for the Second Sunday of Advent prays that "we may greet with joy the coming of Jesus Christ our Redeemer (BCP, pp. 159, 211). The first collect for Easter Day states that God gave his only-begotten Son to death on the cross for our redemption and that Jesus delivered us from the power of our enemy by his glorious resurrection (BCP, pp. 170, 222, 295). Eucharistic Prayer B recalls that in these last days God the Father sent Jesus "to be incarnate from the Virgin Mary, to be the Savior and Redeemer of the world" (BCP, p. 368). The Hymnal 1982 includes "Redeemer of the nations, come" as a hymn for Advent (Hymn 55).
