Christ Jesus the mediator

For a while I didn’t quite understand the concept of Christ Jesus as mediator, as described in this Bible verse: “There is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus” (I Timothy 2:5). The concept became clearer to me when I attended a recital given by a renowned pianist.

Seeing I cannot read music, notes in the score are merely ink on a page to me. However, while listening to the most beautiful melodies coming from the piano, I asked myself what was really happening. I realized that in effect the pianist was acting as a mediator for the composer—bringing to life the musical score through his playing in such a way that I, and the rest of the audience, could hear, enjoy, and understand the music.
