Grace 
   A common definition describes grace as the unmerited favor of God.
Old Testament
   The word is used most often in the phrase favor in your (God's) sight or in the eyes of the Lord.
New Testament
   Jesus is never quoted as using the word grace, but his teaching is full of the unmerited favor of God. 
   "But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ, even when we were dead in transgressions- it is by grace you have been saved." (Ephesians 2:4,5)  
  
Example
   In the parable of the prodigal son, favor is extended to one who did not deserve favor...other than the fact that he asked in humility and repentance to be shown favor. (Luke 15:11-24)
