Episode 8.3: The Perfection of the Mediator


In light of recent controversies what in this paragraph relates to the ontological and economic Trinity? How does this paragraph set forth Jesus as the New Adam? What is different about Jesus’ sanctification from ours? Where is the encouragement in this for us? Why did Jesus need to be holy, harmless, and undefiled? Hos is the Mediatorial reign of Jesus depicted here? Join Nathan, Shawn, Joel, and Kyle as they discuss WCF 8.3:

The Lord Jesus, in His human nature thus united to the divine, was sanctified, and anointed with the Holy Spirit, above measure, having in Him all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge; in whom it pleased the Father that all fullness should dwell; to the end that, being holy, harmless, undefiled, and full of grace and truth, He might be thoroughly furnished to execute the office of a Mediator and Surety. Which office He took not unto Himself, but was thereunto called by His Father, who put all power and judgment into His hand, and gave Him commandment to execute the same.
