Torrance on Mediation

by caseybedell

Reading Thomas Torrance’s The Mediation of Christ late last night it came upon me even more clearly that because Jesus is the eternal Son of the Father, salvation means that I know the Father because Jesus has brought me into his relationship with the Father.  As Torrance says,

“the Sonship embodied in Jesus Christ belongs to the inner relations of God’s own being, so that when Jesus Christ reveals God the Father to us through himself the only begotten Son, he gives us access to knowledge of God in some measure as he is in himself.”

The foundation of our relationship with the Father is Jesus’ relationship with the Father.   He carries us into the world that he has always known and lets us know it as he knows it.
