Westminster Confession of Faith

Chapter 8: Of Christ the Mediator

3: The Lord Jesus, in His human nature thus united to the divine, was sanctified, and anointed with the Holy Spirit, above measure,[175] having in Him all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge;[176] in whom it pleased the Father that all fullness should dwell;[177] to the end that, being holy, harmless, undefiled, and full of grace and truth,[178] He might be thoroughly furnished to execute the office of a Mediator and Surety.[179] Which office He took not unto Himself, but was thereunto called by His Father,[180] who put all power and judgment into His hand, and gave Him commandment to execute the same.[181]
