God's Mediators: A Biblical Theology of Priesthood

Product Description

There are many investigations of the Old Testament priests and the New Testament’s appropriation of such imagery to describe Jesus Christ. There are also numerous studies of Israel’s corporate priesthood and what this means for the priesthood of God’s new covenant people. However, such studies tend not to be connected with one another: key interrelations are missed, and key questions are not addressed.

Making two passes across the tapestry of Scripture, Andrew Malone traces these two threads and their intersections, with an eye to the contemporary relevance of both themes in both Testaments.

Malone shows how our Christology and perseverance as God’s people are enhanced by the way the book of Hebrews depicts Christ’s own priesthood. Furthermore, Christians better understand their corporate identity and mission by discerning both the ministry of individual Old Testament priests and Israel’s corporate calling. Combining the various biblical emphases on priesthood in one place provides synergies that are too easily disregarded.

    Gods Mediators: A Biblical Theology of Priesthood by Andrew S. Malone is one of the newest volumes in the longstanding series New Studies In Biblical Theology by IVP Academic Publishing. This admirable series is edited by D.A. Carson is renowned for its impeccable research, its engagement with current scholarship, and conformity to the basic tenants of orthodoxy. The focus of this book is the office of priest in the Bible.

    Now the concept of the priesthood is not taught one by pastors much but is usually relegated to Scholars. This sad truth is what this book is trying to change. In Gods Mediators a long and broad history of interpretation and this work strives to explore the vast landscape of various Biblical Theological interpretations of this office while evaluating which interpretations are sound with some advice on which interpretive methods to take.

    In regard to the text of the book itself, there are seven various interpretive lenses to view the this office of priest through, some of which connect well, while others contradict one another. In each of these interpretive systems the authors are careful to look at the meaning of the text in its own context as well as the broader view of scripture as a whole. Furthermore in each of the interpretations there are a handful of themes which the authors shine a light the importance of this office in both the Old and New Testament as well as the Churchs priestly commission. Of these themes the most insightful was the famine theme.

    In the end I would wholeheartedly recommend Gods Mediators to any Pastor, Bible Teacher, or Sunday School teacher who is preparing for a long in-depth exposition of the office of priest.

    This book was provided to me free of charge from IVP Academic Publishers in exchange for an unbiased, honest review.

    God has only ONE MEDIATOR. His name is JESUS CHRIST. That would exclude "lesser and subordinate mediators". Also an intercessor is one who prays for someone on their behalf. A mediator is one who intervenes between two persons who are at variance, with a view to reconcile them. He makes reconciliation between God and man by his all-perfect atoning sacrifice. ( 1 Timothy 2:5 ; Hebrews 8:6 ; 9:15 ; 12:24 ) A "priest" can be an intercessor, or anyone else for that matter, but cannot reconcile that person to God. Nor can Mary offer herself as a sacrifice for reconciliation. Again, there is only ONE Mediator.
