Product Information

This famous discourse regarding the Mediatorship of Christ forms the greatest part of Volume V of Goodwin’s Works.
Of all the sublime subjects tackled by and opened by Goodwin, this one is among the best known, and most often read. However learned one may be, however near he or she may have drawn to God, these pages will certainly deliver fountains of living water into their souls. it is a legacy left to us by our Savior God, the opening up of heavenly views of the Mediator from the beginning to the end.

In the eternal counsels it was determined and decreed that man should be made, that he should fall, and that certain elect ones should be rescued by a Mediator. For ''all things are of God, the [One] having reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ, . . .'' (2 Cor. 5:18).

The highest attainment is to see the Gospel in its original, those eternal transactions between God the Father and God the Son for the salvation of man. God the Father contrived the best means to accomplish salvation, which required a full and complete satisfaction for His Justice. The difficulty of devising a way to accomplish this. Christ’s acceptance of the Father’s terms. God agreed to bestow all the blessings Christ would purchase. Why all these are of pure grace. Christ alone was fitted to be the Mediator. First, our Mediator must be God, and God the Son was best fitted to be the Mediator. Yet our Mediator must also be man. Therefore, the Mediator must be both God and man.

How were the Divine and human natures of Christ united. Why Christ must be born of a woman, yet without sin? Christ as Redeemer has repaired all which was lost by the sin of His elect. Why Christ must be emptied of His glory and made of no reputation.

The greatness and super-eminent worth of Christ’s satisfaction. He answered all the demands of the Law. Not only was He willing, but He performed all the parts of the Agreement. What is the meaning of Christ giving Himself for us? Why must Christ be made sin and a curse for us? The sufferings of Christ before His crucifixion. The extremity of the pain Christ endured in His body. Yet the greatest sufferings were of Christ’s soul. The fullness of our justification through faith in Christ.

How the perfect holiness of Christ’s can be imputed to us.

Christ is our great Shepherd, our great High Priest. The privilege of believers to enter Heaven by faith through His high-priesthood.

Goodwin (1600-1679) was influential in so many ways, a member of the Westminster Assembly, President of Magdalene College, drafter of the Savoy Confession of Faith, and pastored the most influential Independent church in London.   444 pages, blue hard cover
