Atonement theories are ways that theologians express how that Christ saved us. The early church advocated the Ransom Theory, in which Christ pays a ransom to the Devil for us. Christus Victor, in which Christ dupes the devil and death is undone, was popular until the 12th century. Then, Anselm saw Christ’s death as satisfying the justice and wrath of God.
