Reading through book two of Calvin’s Institutes, something has struck a chord with me. Calvin seeks in 2.6.2 to show that Christ was always Mediator between God and man in the OT. I agree that Christ is ultimately the only mediator between God and man (1 Timothy 2:5), but many of the Scriptures that Calvin goes to seem to do very little for his proposition.
Calvin is saying that Christ was always the mediator of the covenant in the OT, when it was clear (at least to me) that Moses was properly the mediator of the covenant that commonly bears his name, and that’s some of the distinction that the author of Hebrews makes between the two covenants. Thoughts? Any insight to add to this?
