“For there is one God, and one mediator also between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, who gave Himself as a ransom for all…” —1 Timothy 2:5-6 (NASB – New American Standard Bible )
“Mediator: One who interposes between two parties at variance to reconcile them.” —Insight, vol. 2, p. 360
If Jesus is Not Your Mediator “Reconciling” You to God, Who Is?
“Jesus Christ is not the Mediator between Jehovah God and all mankind. He is the Mediator between his heavenly Father, Jehovah God, and the nation of spiritual Israel, which is limited to only 144,000 members.” —Worldwide Security Under the “Prince of Peace,” p. 10 (View PDF of this page)
“Think of a legal case in which an attorney is involved… Of course, you are not in that legal case, so in that sense he is not serving as your attorney… The people of all nations… benefit even now from Jesus’ ser
vices. Though he is not their legal Mediator, for they are not in the new covenant, he is their means of approaching Jehovah.”—The Watchtower, August 15, 1989, p. 31 (View PDF of this page)
If you don’t hire t
he “attorney,” how can you “approach” him for his services? If Jesus isn’t your “attorney” (mediator), how can He serve as a mediating agent between you and Jehovah God?
