      2: a person who rescues you from harm or danger [syn: savior,
          rescuer, deliverer]

From: Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary

    one who saves from any form or degree of evil. In its highest
    sense the word indicates the relation sustained by our Lord to
    his redeemed ones, he is their Saviour. The great message of the
    gospel is about salvation and the Saviour. It is the "gospel of
    salvation." Faith in the Lord Jesus Christ secures to the sinner
    a personal interest in the work of redemption. Salvation is
    redemption made effectual to the individual by the power of the
    Holy Spirit.
