Chapter Summary

This chapter provides a short sermon series from Isaac Foster based on First Timothy. The preface to First Timothy in the Geneva Study Bible is entitled Christ the Mediator. The mediator must have links with both sides so as to identify with and maintain the interests of both, and represent each to the other on the basis of goodwill. The reformer Zacharius Ursinus describes the mediator within the framework of the covenant, that Christ mediates between fallen man and God. It also provides two sermons whose opening text comes from the Book of Psalms. The theology contained in the Psalms so impressed Martin Luther that he called the Psalms "a little Bible, and the summary of the Old Testament"..
