Wesley's Notes for 1 Timothy 2:5

2:5 For - The fourth verse is proved by the fifth; the first, by the fourth. There is one God - And they who have not him, through the one Mediator, have no God. One mediator also - We could not rejoice that there is a God, were there not a mediator also; one who stands between God and men, to reconcile man to God, and to transact the whole affair of our salvation. This excludes all other mediators, as saints and angels, whom the Papists set up and idolatrously worship as such: just as the heathens of old set up many mediators, to pacify their superior gods. The man - Therefore all men are to apply to this mediator, who gave himself for all.

it 's referring to positions the first man to do God 's will sinned, the last man Jesus had to complete it. Gen. 6th day man was created. Adam was formed later to do God 's will to the creation men women, it doesn 't mean he was the first man. Christ certainly wasn 't the last man.


MockingBird's comment on 2015-01-21 09:49:03:

Truly there is one God : the only way that I can get to God is through Jesus Christ and the blood that He shed for me and only on His merits that He wrought for me to be able to get to my God. I cannot approach God on my merits and my blood or on any good work that I do. Take the word of God at face value and quit trying to dissect it into something His word does not say. You have to have scripture to back up scripture.

2 points I take away from this. ONE this proves to me that we only pray in Jesus name. Praying to or through saints are not backed in the Bible. Only Jesus is the mediator. TWO This highlights how God and Jesus are not the same. God is a separate entity. Jesus plays the role in which mankind can approach God. If Jesus were God, then there would not be a need for a mediator, cause essentially you are going directly to God anyway.

No dought, there is one God and one mediator between God and men,My Jesus Christ.Not saints and mother Mary.


Ruban's comment on 2013-10-02 10:59:03:

He is the son of God so he is the mediator. That's all.

No matter what, all we have is one God. No Shiva, or whatever but just one God and one mediator. No Mary or whatsoever but Jesus Christ. Praise God.

the fact that there is an intermidiator(the man Christ)simply implies that there is a serious disagreement between man and God


Question's comment on 2013-03-03 12:28:54:

I have a very realistic Hebraic question. I originally got into this dilemma respective of Psalm 110:1 and the Hebrew "adoni". I had been taught that the Hebrew "adoni" only referenced a non-deity (human) or a created angelic appearance. However, when I was reading and researching the subject, I discovered a brief notation in acclaimed BDB lexicon on page 11 that declared this same Hebrew "adoni" is defined to be a "Theophanic angel" (Theophany) with respect to both Joshua 5:14 and Judges 6:13. This BDB cited Theophany then Joshua 5:14 and Judges 6:13 would leave no debate as to the fact that the Hebrew "adoni" can indeed mean a Deity as well as a non-deity. The Hebrew "adoni" is cited some 195 times in the MT but only these 3 Passages can actually suggest a Theophany and Deity. Your response to this concern will be most appreciated. Barney

For further understanding and knowledge about the deity of God.
