    In The Trial and Triumph of Faith, Rutherford argues, pace Beza, Piscator, and others, that the promises of Galatians 3:18 do not apply do not apply to the mystical Christ but to the mediatorial Christ (Rutherford, Banner of Truth, 81-82). What does Rutherford mean by "Mystical?"

    Jesus cannot be sub dived though can he? He does all things from Himself, so he would be at same time whatever he needs to be for the action to happen?

    The Church is called Christ's body, yet no one thinks I am hypostatically Jesus' toe, for example.

    True, but whatever Jesus does is all due to Him being just Jesus, not subdived in mystical or other?
