The name Son of God is rooted in Judaism in the Psalms of David.


In this episode, Pastor Adam answers the question, “Why is Jesus called the Son of God?”

The name Son of God is rooted in Judaism in the Psalms of David. In ancient Israel, when the King was crowned, he became the son of God. Throughout the in the ancient world, political leaders were considered to be sons of god. These leaders showed the people the qualities of their god.

At the baptism of Jesus, a voice declares, “You are my son. With you I am well pleased.” This begins the radical transformation of our understanding of God.

Please note: Jesus was is not created through a physical relationship between God and Mary.
