    Acts 9:20

    20And straightway he preached Christ in the synagogues, that he is the Son of God.

    This thread is different from that of proving the Deity of Christ, of which is a vital doctrine to True Religion, but this is to set forth more on what it means as Christ the Son of God.

    One of the first things paul preached after his momentous conversion in acts 9, was that Christ is the Son of God.

    This title for Christ is of extreme importance and is no less a Divine Revelation into His Being, note Matt 16:16-17

    16And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God. cp Acts 9:20

    17And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven.


    And it was upon this grand truth the church ekklesia, the called out ones or assembly would be built upon..

    It was as the Son of God, the devil hoisted one of his fierce temptations at him Lk 4:9

    9And he brought him to Jerusalem, and set him on a pinnacle of the temple, and said unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down from hence:

    Now if we recall, Adam was also designated or called the Son of God Lk 3:38

    38Which was the son of Enos, which was the son of Seth, which was the son of Adam, which was the son of God.

    And remember that Adam was a type or figure of Him that was coming Rom 5:14

    14Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over them that had not sinned after the similitude of Adam's transgression, who is the figure of him that was to come.

    The word figure is the greek word typos:

    ) the mark of a stroke or blow, print

    2) a figure formed by a blow or impression

    a) of a figure or image

    b) of the image of the gods

    3) form

    So both were Adam's 1 Cor 15:45

    45And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit.

    Or The First Son of God was made a Living soul The Last Son of God was made a quickening spirit.

    Now one of the purposes of the Ministry and the gifted men that God gave to the church, was for to bring us [ the church] into a accurate knowledge of the Son of God Eph 4:11-13

    11And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers;

    12For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:

    13Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ:

    The word knowledge is the greek word epignĊsis:

    precise and correct knowledge

    You see that, there is a precise and correct knowledge of the Son of God..

    Christ The Son of God !

    In light of what has been established that Christ as the Son of God was the Anti type of Adam who was the Son of God. One the most important things about Adam, the Son of God lk 3:38, who was a figure of Him to come, was that upon His Creation, He was not Created a single individual, but Two other components were built into Him to make His Person complete, His wife and the physical lives of all His posterity, in fact, His posterity was in such a oneness with Him, that when He sinned, they sinned too Rom 5:12

    12Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:

    Yes, His sin was the sin of all in Him as He represented them in the Mind and Purpose of God, so much so, that when He sinned, God said all have have sinned.

    This because God reckoned the whole of the human race in Him, He was our Representative Head as the Son of God, and so the Physical lives of the Sons of God came from Adam originally see Gen 6:4

    4There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.

    The Sons of God here are the descendants of Seth, those who began to call upon the name of the Lord Gen 5:25-26

    25 And Adam knew his wife again; and she bare a son, and called his name Seth: For God, said she, hath appointed me another seed instead of Abel, whom Cain slew.

    26 And to Seth, to him also there was born a son; and he called his name Enos: then began men to call upon the name of the LORD.

    And of course Seth is from Adam Lk 3:38

    38 Which was the son of Enos, which was the son of Seth, which was the son of Adam, which was the son of God.

    We can see that Adam, the Son of God had a Posterity in Him and out of which came the Sons of God, those who called upon the Name of the Lord !

    So now likewise, A Key element of Truth has been established as to Why Jesus Christ has been constituted and is the Son of God, because Just as the First Son of God, had a Bride and posterity in Him, so Did the Second Son of God,when begotten in Eternity, had a bride and posterity in Him; and Just as what the First Son of God did had effects and consequences for His posterity in Him that He represented, so likewise, there are effects and consequences to the posterity and bride that the Second Adam had in Him, that He represented.

    Remember John the baptists words Jn 3:29

    29 He that hath the bride is the bridegroom: but the friend of the bridegroom, which standeth and heareth him, rejoiceth greatly because of the bridegroom's voice: this my joy therefore is fulfilled.

    Also John's Testimony of Jesus as the Son of God Jn 1:34

    34And I saw, and bare record that this is the Son of God.

    So John understood that the Son of God had a bride and called Him the Bridegroom..see also Matt 9:15

    BTW who is the bride ? Rev 19:7


    7Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready.

    21:9

    9 And there came unto me one of the seven angels which had the seven vials full of the seven last plagues, and talked with me, saying, Come hither, I will shew thee the bride, the Lamb's wife.

    If the bride is the church, which it is, how did John the baptist have knowledge of it, he being perhaps the last of the OT Prophets.


    Remember the jews held John as a Prophet Matt 21:26

    But if we shall say, Of men; we fear the people; for all hold John as a prophet.

    Nevertheless, What I hoped to have shown is that the designation of Christ as the Son of God did necessitate Him being the Head and Representative of A People, His Bride in Him and His posterity in Him..

    When you sin do your children sin or did God change the rules?

    First, the Second Person of the Trinity was not created. Second, Adam is said to be only a "figure" NOT OF HIS NATURE but of his REPRESENTATIVE POSITION.

    Like usual, you go to the extreme and come up with some kind of crazy interpretation that violates common sense and common principles of interpretation.
