On pg 319 (Banner of Truth Edition) of his Systematic Theology, in the chapter on the names and natures of Christ, Berkhof statest that it is absolutely essential for the Mediator to be very God in order that: 1. He might bring a sacrifice of infinite value and render perfect obedience to the Law of God. 2. He might bear the wrath of God redemptively, that is so as to free others from the curse of the law. 3. He might be able to apply the fruits of His accomplished work to those who accepted Him by faith. I don't understand why the Mediator would need to be divine to fulfill number 2 and it's not clear to me that 3 is accurate. Doesn't the Father apply the Jesus' accomplished work to all who accept Him by faith? I'd appreciate your comments helping me understand these last two points.
