First, we should make it clear that the bible refers to people other than jesus as son of god: behold, what manner of love the father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of god: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not. These are the words of jesus, and he only refers to himself as son of god in john 10:34-36, when he refers to himself as a son among others see my following post for further clarification see my following post for further clarification. Was jesus god's only son [duplicate] he was unique in his miraculous birth and in his being the fulfillment of the promise of god no other son was born in fulfillment of a promise from god and no other son was born miraculously it is true that jesus is not the only son of god or only child of god, because, as you identified, all of.
In hebrews 1:6, god the father also says that all the angels should worship god the son worship can only be rightly applied to god, as we know from exodus 34:14 and deuteronomy 8:19 yet jesus accepted worship of himself on many occasions (eg, mt 14:33 28:9) and stated that he should be honored equally with the father (jn 5:23. Jesus the only begotten son of god discussion begotten or not begotten, that is the question reasons why monogenes should not be translated as only begotten your attitude should be the same as that of christ jesus: who, being in very nature god, did not consider equality with god something to be grasped, but. John was primarily concerned with demonstrating that jesus is the son of god , and he uses monogenes to highlight jesus as uniquely god's son—sharing the same divine nature as god—as opposed to believers who are god's sons and daughters by adoption (ephesians 1:5) jesus is god’s “one and only” son. We can clearly see that in this context, jesus being called the son of god means that jesus is god of course, this is reflective of the trinity , the father, the son, and the holy spirit so, the term son of god means that jesus is god in flesh.
But jesus is the only begotten son of god meaning that god planted the seed of jesus into the womb of mary so that jesus could enter this world as a human and still be god we who believe the gospel and are led by the spirit are given the power to be the sons of god. As you can see in this verse, jesus was calling god his own father, making himself equal to god therefore, the term son of god is a designation of the equality with god when it is a reference to christ jesus is the son of god the phrase son of god occurs 44 times in the new american standard bible each time it is used of christ. John was primarily concerned with demonstrating that jesus is the son of god (john 20:31), and he uses monogenes to highlight jesus as uniquely god's son—sharing the same divine nature as god—as opposed to believers who are god's sons and daughters by adoption (ephesians 1:5) jesus is god’s “one and only” son. It became apparent to me in my studies that the bible is clear on the subject of being son of god i post this in the hope of gaining insight to this subject, and welcome critiques or supports first, we should make it clear that the bible refers to people other than jesus as son of god: behold.
Most people are familiar with the image of jesus being the only begotten son of god the story is, he was sent by god into the world to die for our sins that is the only way to make it possible to be back in the presence of god. Jesus can be both god and the son of god because the terms don't mean the same thing when we say that jesus is god (john 1:1, 14 colossians 2:9 hebrews 1:8), we are saying that jesus possesses the divine nature (as well as a human nature, see hypostatic union . Jesus clearly claimed powers which only god has one time jesus said to a man who was paralyzed, son, your sins are forgiven you the religious leaders immediately reacted.
Jesus can be both god and the son of god because the terms don't mean the same thing when we say that jesus is god (john 1:1, 14 colossians 2:9 hebrews 1:8), we are saying that jesus possesses the divine nature (as well as a human nature, see hypostatic union) but the term son of god does not. Jesus answered, it is written: ‘worship the lord your god and serve him only’ the devil led him to jerusalem and had him stand on the highest point of the temple if you are the son of god, he said, throw yourself down from here. The fact is, that to call him the only son of god would make the bible contradict itself, for he is not the only son of god, and certainly not the one and only son of god angels are several times called the sons of god (eg, job 38:7) since they had no fathers, being directly created by god.
Jesus is god’s “one and only” son the bottom line is that terms such as father and son, descriptive of god and jesus, are human terms that help us understand the relationship between the different persons of the trinity. The son is subservient to the father nature as being greater than the son when jesus was fully man (and fully god), he was positionally inferior to the father.
It is true that jesus is not the only son of god or only child of god, because, as you identified, all of those who have faith in jesus are children of god however, the sonship of jesus is unique indeed, his sonship is wholly unlike any other. Jesus is god’s son in the sense that he is god made manifest in human form (john 1:1, 14) jesus is god's son in that he was conceived in mary by the holy spirit luke 1:35 declares, “the angel answered, 'the holy spirit will come upon you, and the power of the most high will overshadow you. Jesus is eternal (here, “beginning” means “eternity past”) he was with god the father, and is god the son to make sure that the reader has no misunderstanding, john (v 14) reiterates that the “word” referred to is the son, and notes that he “became flesh” (the incarnation) only the son has a body the word = jesus = god.
