 Judaism had already been the revelation and testimony in the world of the first: there was one only God….Christianity, while fully revealing the one God, presents the second truth: there is one mediator between God and men. (1 Timothy 2 by J.N. Darby)
 The One Mediator is a Man in order that God may be known to men. Men cannot rise to God; but God, in His love, can come down to man. (The Order of God's House by H. Smith)
 The mediator is a man, that God may be known of men. The Absolute is divided from the relative (and we, indeed creatures universally, are necessarily relative) by a gulf impassable to us. But if man cannot himself rise to God, and those of mankind who are by grace righteous would most of all repudiate and abhor so presumptuous a thought, God can and does in infinite love come down to man (On 1 Timothy 2:5-7 by W. Kelly)
 the oneness of the Mediator is as sure, vital, and characteristic a testimony of Christianity as the oneness of God was of the law. It is not only that Christ Jesus is Mediator, but there is this "one" only. (On 1 Timothy 2:5-7 by W. Kelly)
