Luke 13:33; I Timothy 2:5; John 1:1; 1:7; 14:6; Isaiah 14:6
In our month long discussions of the titles for Jesus as we have discussed several; however over the next two days we will conclude our topical discussion of Jesus' titles. Today's focus is Jesus as Prophet, Mediator, Wonderful Counselor, the Word, the Way, the Truth and the Life.
o Jesus as Prophet: Luke 13:33 portray Jesus as the Prophet who came out of Jerusalem and Jesus lamented over the conditions of Jerusalem and their stubbornness to accept God's gift of salvation.
o Jesus the Mediator: I Timothy 2:5 states "For there is one God, and one Mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus." Jesus was the Mediator who bridged the spiritual divide between man and God. It was through His sacrificial death that covers man's sins that we as believers can come boldly to God's throne of grace.
o Jesus as the Word: John presents Jesus as the "Word" of God who was made flesh to live among men as He was present with God in the beginning. Being the "Word" Jesus relates to God Himself, humanity, and the world as it was through Jesus Christ that the world was created.
o Jesus as the Way, the Truth and Life: Again John 14:6 tell of just who Jesus is in relationship to our salvation. No man can come to the Father accept they enter by Jesus because it was Jesus who shed His precious blood to atone our sins.
o Jesus as Wonderful Counselor: Isaiah prophesied of the coming Messiah who would have the world on His shoulders. Jesus as our Counselor comforts when the need is there. He delivers us from the many snares we find ourselves in. He wipes away tears and He provides for all our needs and cares.
