By definition a mediator cannot be the other two identities for whom he mediates. Jesus is not the one God. Rather he is the mediator between men and the one God who is someone else.
The one God - Party 1 Jesus the Man - Mediator for both parties Men - Party 2
Jesus is by identity neither the one God nor the group of men for whom he mediates. While he is a man, He is not even included among the men for whom he mediates. The men for whom He mediates are every man except himself.
There is only one God in existence. Therefore, he, the mediator, cannot be that one God. There are, however, many men in existence and Jesus is one of the men in existence. He is not, however, one of the men for whom he mediates. So he can be a man and be the mediator because there are many men in existence but he cannot be the one God and be the mediator because there is only one God in existence and the mediator cannot be either party by definition for whom he mediates - and he isn't. He is neither the one God for whom he mediates and he is not the group of men for whom he mediates.
