Freedom

Additional Links
The law of Moses pointed out the cases in which the servants of the Hebrews were to receive their freedom (Exodus 21:2-4,7,8; Leviticus 25:39-42,47-55; Deuteronomy 15:12-18 ). Under the Roman law the "freeman" (ingenuus) was one born free; the "freedman" (libertinus) was a manumitted slave, and had not equal rights with the freeman (Acts 22:28; Compare Acts 16:37-39; 21:39; 22:25; 25:11,12 ).
