“Son of God” as a Messianic title for Jesus Christ
63 But Jesus kept silent. And the high priest answered and said to Him, “I put You under oath by the living God: Tell us if You are the Christ, the Son of God!”
64 Jesus said to him, “It is as you said. Nevertheless, I say to you, hereafter you will see the Son of Man sitting at the right hand of the Power, and coming on the clouds of heaven.”
61 But He kept silent and answered nothing.
Again the high priest asked Him, saying to Him, “Are You the Christ, the Son of the Blessed?”
62 Jesus said, “I am. And you will see the Son of Man sitting at the right hand of the Power, and coming with the clouds of heaven.”
22:70 Then they all said, “Are You then the Son of God?”
So He said to them, “You rightly say that I am.”
71 And they said, “What further testimony do we need? For we have heard it ourselves from His own mouth.”
23:1 Then the whole multitude of them arose and led Him to Pilate. 2 And they began to accuse Him, saying, “We found this fellow perverting the nation, and forbidding to pay taxes to Caesar, saying that He Himself is Christ, a King.”
16 Simon Peter answered and said, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.”
The beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God.
Luke 1:32; 4:41
1:32 He will be great, and will be called the Son of the Highest; and the Lord God will give Him the throne of His father David.
4:41 And demons also came out of many, crying out and saying, “You are the Christ, the Son of God!”
John 1:49, 11:27
1:49 Nathanael answered and said to Him, “Rabbi, You are the Son of God! You are the King of Israel!”
11:27 She said to Him, “Yes, Lord, I believe that You are the Christ, the Son of God, who is to come into the world.”
“Son of God” as one sent by God
4 But when the fullness of the time had come, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under the law,
37 Then last of all he sent his son to them, saying, ‘They will respect my son.’
6 Therefore still having one son, his beloved, he also sent him to them last, saying, ‘They will respect my son.’
16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. 17 For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.
Romans 8:3, 32
3 For what the law could not do in that it was weak through the flesh, God did by sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, on account of sin: He condemned sin in the flesh,
32 He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things?
1 John 4:9
9 In this the love of God was manifested toward us, that God has sent His only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through Him.
Knowledge is the apprehension of truth; wisdom is its application to life. Knowledge is prudent judgment and wisdom is prudent action. Both are found in Christ (cf. Rom. 11:33; 1 Cor. 12:8) whose wisdom is foolishness to the world (1 Cor. 1:21-25), but who is the power of God by which a believer receives “righteousness, holiness, and redemption” (1 Cor. 1:30).
God is testing us every day and has given us the right to make our own choices. Do you know which ones are the right choices in Gods mind?
Fear God, love God, honor God, and trust God with all your heart, mind and soul and you will receive and experience the joy of the promises of God’s blessings in His time.
