Jesus the only Mediator

Jews and Gentiles alike must come to Jesus, for He is God’s answer for every man’s salvation: “For there is [only] one God and [one] mediator between God and men, the Man Jesus the Messiah.” – 1 Timothy 2:5 (JCV).

The original Greek word for “Mediator”, (mesites), speaks of a go-between, an umpire, a reconciler, an arbitrator, an intermediary. In the Old Testament God used Moses to bring the Law to the people. Now, in the New Testament, one greater than Moses is God’s mediator – His own Son, Jesus the Messiah. Jesus accomplishes salvation for all men by His vicarious death and guarantees the terms of the New Covenant.

SELAH (pause, and think about that).
