Jesus “Son of God” – Is that possible?
The expression “son of” does not always refer to the child of a man and a woman. Jesus called two of His disciples sons of thunder. And He told some self-righteous Jews that their father was the devil. Jesus didn’t mean that thunder or the devil had slept with women. Likewise, devout Jews of Jesus’ day sometimes called God their “father,” but they never dreamed that implied God had slept with their mother. Some languages even today use the expression “son of” to describe a person’s character.
What about Jesus? Did He claim to be “the son of God”? Yes. On that Jesus was very clear. Note this important section from the Gospel of Luke.
