the reason

Release

Are these two passages parallel?

"Inasmuch then as the children have partaken of flesh and blood, He Himself likewise shared in the same, that through death He might destroy him who had the power of death, that is, the devil, and release those who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage." Hebrews 2:14-15

"...He has visited and redeemed His people...
To perform the mercy promised to our fathers...
To grant us that we,
Being delivered from the hand of our enemies,
Might serve Him without fear,

In holiness and righteousness before Him all the days of our life." Luke 1:68, 72, 74-75
