name of Jesus

One thoroughly enjoyable Colossians Challenge group discussion later.....we talked about the names ascribed to Jesus, one of which was Deliverer.  Immediately I thought of churchy, theological stuff about "freedom from slavery to sin and death" kind of delivery, rescue of sorts.  But more curious thinkers than I gave me awesome new thoughts:
deliverer as midwife, who delivers a baby, giving new life to the world
deliverer as in UPS, who brings us something we have needed or wanted
