Son of God

Additional Links

A term applied in the Scriptures not only to magistrates and saints, but more particularly to Jesus Christ. Christ, says Bishop Pearson, has a fourfold right to this title.

1. By generation, as begotten of God, Luke 1:35 .

2. By commission, as sent by him, John 10:34; John 10:36 .

3. By resurrection, as the first born, Acts 13:32-33 .

4. By actual possession, as heir of all, Hebrews 1:2; Hebrews 1:5 . But, besides these four, many think that he is called the Son of God in such a way and manner as never any other was, is, or can be, because of his own divine nature, he being the true, proper, and natural Son of God, begotten by him before all worlds, John 3:16 . Romans 8:3 . 1 John 4:9 .
