Yeshua, the human mediator

The passage we are looking at today is one of the clearest definitions of the nature of Yeshua, the mediator, the man.

1Tim 2:5: “For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;”

Here, Paul describes Yeshua as a man; a human. The Greek word here has the same meaning in the phrase “between God and MEN,” and “the MAN, Christ Jesus.” One is merely the plural form and one is the singular of the same Greek term.

This word is used over 500 times in the NT and describes, well, a man or men; humans.

Now, I realize some trinitarians might say “that’s just the human nature of Jesus; he had a divine nature, too.” I understand that perspective, but this verse has absolutely no indication of that, and it would have to be a presupposition imposed upon the plain text of the passage.

This is the type of individual point that has challenged my past trinitarian view and caused me to see the true nature of the one true God and his son, his human son, Yeshua the Messiah.
