Westminster Larger Catechism in modern English question number thirty-nine:
Q. 39. Why was it necessary that the Mediator should be a man?
A. It was necessary that the Mediator should be a man so that He might glorify our nature, obey the law, suffer and make intercession for us in our nature, and have a fellow-feeling of our weaknesses, in order that we might receive adoption as children and have comfort in Him and access to the throne of grace with boldness.
