On Christ as Mediator

Quote, 1700’s

Edward Fisher

Catechism

“Q. 41.9. How often were the commandments written on tables of stone?

A. The first being broken by Moses, on occasion of the idolatry of Israel, Exod 32:19, the Lord condescended to write on two other tables, the very same words that were on the former, Exod 34:1.

Q. 41.10. Was there any difference between the first two tables and the second?

A. The first two, which were entirely the work of God, (the polishing as well as the engraving,) were broken beneath the mount, Exod 32:16,19; but the second, which were hewed by Moses, the typical mediator, were put into the ark, Deut 10:3,5.

Q. 41.11. What spiritual mystery was represented by this?

A. That though the covenant of works, made with the first Adam, was broken and violated by him, yet it was fulfilled in every respect by Christ the true Mediator, who “restored that which he took not away,” Ps 69:4.”

“If you receive Christ for anything, you receive Him for everything.”

“As soon may a man bottle up daylight as have a gospel of benefits without the immediate shining of the Sun of Righteousness.”

“I would not preach the benefits of redemption without preaching Christ, but neither would I preach a benefitless Christ.”
