A title of Our Lord, arising from the fact that He sacrificed His life to atone for the sins of men and so won for sinful men grace and access to God. Only the virtue of His satisfaction for men's offenses can we obtain salvation: "Neither is there salvation in any other. For there is no other name under heaven given to men, whereby we must be saved. (Acts 4)
