Did you know that Jesus was the Mediator between God and man? That He is the Light of the World? That He is the Creator? All of these things are true! But did you know that Jesus is the Atonement for our sins? Let us explore these important points. Then you can decide whether Christ is truly the Savior you seek. We can begin by considering the role He played when He was born and how He saved mankind.
Jesus is the mediator between God and man
The role of the Mediator is central to the Christian faith, as it plays an essential role in resolving conflicts and ensuring that both parties are satisfied with the outcome. The role of the Mediator is exemplified in three New Testament passages. One verse refers to Jesus as “the Mediator between God and man” while the other two passages speak of Christ as the one and only mediator between God and man.
As the incarnate Son of God, Jesus is the only Mediator between God and man. He was better than Moses because He was both fully human and fully divine. Because he is the only One who could be the perfect mediator between God and man, he was uniquely qualified to represent both sides. Through his death and resurrection, Jesus opened the way to God’s presence, making him the only Mediator. It is in this role that Jesus fulfilled the law and fulfilled the will of God.
He is the light of men
The definition of light varies among expositors. Luther equates light with understanding, and Calvin with the light of truth. Others see light as the guiding principle of life. But what does it mean to be the light of men? The light of Christ is the most important concept of all, because it illuminates the way to salvation. Darkness implies ignorance and sin, but can also be an intentional choice. It is Christ’s role to illuminate our path toward eternal life that makes him the light of mankind.
John’s choice of the word light is significant. While the word truth carries a negative connotation, light implies life. Light implies that the truth of God is a light of hope and joy. John’s evangelism is a far cry from the “light of the sun.”
He is the Creator
Jesus is the Creator, and all things in the universe were created through Him. He is the Creator of the universe, and everything in it has purpose. According to the Bible, everything came into existence through him. During the Creation, all things were made with purpose and advance planning. Including the sun, heavens, and the solar system, all of these were made by Jesus. Those who are believers in Christ are able to know that everything in the universe has purpose.
In the Bible, Jesus is declared to be God, and only the Son of God. He is also characterized as the Light of the world, and the Creator of the universe. These titles are given to Jesus because he is the only begotten Son of God. This means that He is the Creator of the universe and is one with the Father. These characteristics of the Creator make Him the perfect Savior and Creator. If we are to believe that Jesus is God, we must understand that He is the Creator.
He is the Atonement
The Bible says that Christ’s sacrifice is the Atonement for our sins. While we may not be able to understand His precise role, we can understand what He is doing when we see His many titles and roles. One of these titles is Father. We must also remember that His divinity and humanity are both referenced in this passage. As such, we should be mindful of these distinctions when discussing Jesus’ role as the Atonement.
The New Testament says that “the blood of the Lamb has become the atonement” for our sins. While we may not understand it at the first glance, the word “atonement” means an exchange between the unjust and the just. That is why Jesus was crucified and died for our sins. It is because of His sacrifice that we are able to receive eternal life and eternal forgiveness. The word “propitiation” is found just three times in the New Testament.
He is the mediator between God and man
The role of a mediator is closely tied to the sacrificial death of Jesus Christ. Understanding what He did as a mediator helps us to understand why a mediator is needed. In short, Jesus is the only way to bring about reconciliation between man and God. We are separated from God because of sin, which was first committed by Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. Sin was passed down to all humans through the generations, and we all choose to sin against the Lord.
Christ became the mediator of the new covenant, in which He made Himself the mediator between God and man. By dying for us, he atoned for the sins of mankind. Through His blood, the New Covenant was ratified. Christ’s death served as a ransom for our sins and made us right with God. By laying down His life, Jesus reconciles man to his Father, and we can now receive forgiveness of our sins.
