Word of the day: 1Timothy 2:5 – Jesus, the Mediator
Caption: Jesus, the Mediator
1Timothy 2:5 –King James Bible – For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;
1Timothy 2:5 –NLT- For there is one God and one Mediator who can reconcile God and humanity-the man Christ Jesus
1Timothy 2:5 – NET- For there is one God and one intermediary between God and humanity, Christ Jesus, himself human,
1Timothy 2:5 –AMP- For there is one, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.
Key: Jesus became our Mediator as a result of Who He is and what He has done. Who He is-He is the union of God and man John 1:1. What He has done-He reconciled us to God through His death on the cross, so that we are not righteous in the sight of God- 2Corinthians 5:18.
Thus, man, now have the right to approach God through Christ who mediates for him. Jesus, the Mediator.
