Jesus became our high priest. God made the Melchizedek priesthood eternal and Jesus shed his holy blood, not blood intermingled with Mary, human, but the blood Jesus became flesh with, His holy blood was shed to pay for all sin in the flesh. He became our perfect priest according to the book of Hebrews. Hebrews really says it all very plainly.
So yes, as our high priest Jesus mediates for us. But you wonder to whom does He mediate? God the Father. God mediating with Himself is what some are thinking. The salvation through Jesus is believing the the works of Christ are sufficient as He claims they are. And it is only through belief in these works which include the death of Him as prophesied, that we receive Faith from God. We don't acquire Faith through by our minds our intelligence. We are given Faith by God because we choose to hear Him and choose to believe Him and believe in His works for us. Our Faith is a spiritual gift from God.
But what God is telling us is that if He can come down here and walk among us, teaching and exhibiting all the gifts of the spirit, teaching us with the Word, and if we understand through Jesus who we are to Him, what He expects through obedience, understanding of His love for us, and so much more we then can become who we are as He created, a people not fallen and freed from captivity in our minds and this corrupted world.
Jesus Christ as our designated priest now has the Name that is higher than any other. God intends for us to follow His example given to us by Jesus on earth. That is simple. Follow Jesus. Pray to Jesus. Believe in His works on our behalf. And salvation for all eternity is promised to those who believe in Jesus.
Jesus is the Word made flesh. Jesus wrote the entire Bible. It is His Words. Every page includes Jesus. So the confusion comes to matters when we are not clear on whom we are speaking about. Through Jesus speaking all things were created. Jesus is our Creator.
So how can Jesus be the "son" of the Father yet be Almighty God? Simple really. Jesus is the begotten "son" of God, not God's offspring, not His progeny, not His child. Their is no father/son relationship as we think of this in our world. John wrote The Word became flesh. The Word spoke and created a manifestation of Himself as a man. Jesus called Himself the Son of Man almost exclusively. Others asked Jesus is He was the Son of God.
So I ask "Who do you say Jesus is?" This is the crux of this matter. To rethink and reread the scriptures after removing the idea of a father to son relationship, and realizing that Jesus is our Creator, most of the Bible opens up to the mind as it has been spoken to us to understand by Jesus.
In Hebrew, "son" and "begotten" hold keys to understanding. Also knowing that "el" is a singular god in Hebrew and Elohim is the plural meaning gods. Genesis 1:1 reads in Hebrew that in the beginning Elohim created the heavens and the earth. Right from the beginning we see the plurality of God and also the Hebrew word for "created" is unique. What also is vastly different from the standard English translation is the Genesis 1:3 is thought to be the creation story. The word "Let" in Hebrew means "restore". English translations been the same since 1611. So I for one want accuracy.
I wish I knew Hebrew. The scholars now says that Hebrew is a language God gave us and has 22 characters which have coded the written Word. Just like computers have two characters of 1's and 0's. There is so much through using computers to identify super advanced encryption and language patterns that they say it has opened up many challenges and research to discover God's fingerprint on the scriptures that make it virtually indisputable.
Science proving God's Word as the Truth. How great is that?
