JESUS IS ALSO CALLED

THE MEDIATOR

Jesus is also called the “mediator” by the Apostle Paul (I Timothy 2:5; cf. also Hebrews 8:6; 9:15; 12:24). In the first century this was both a legal and commercial term. It differs from Christ's title as our “Advocate” in that the “Mediator” is impartial; He represents both parties equally. Only Jesus could be the mediator between God and man because only He is both God and man. The Greek word mesites literally means “a go-between” and is used in two ways in the New Testament. First, Jesus is the Mediator in that He mediates between God and man to effect a reconciliation (I Timothy 2:5). Secondly, He is the mediator of a better covenant (Hebrews 8:6), the new testament (Hebrews 9:15), and the new covenant (Hebrews 12:24) in the sense that He acts as a guarantor so as to secure that which would otherwise be unobtainable.
