The actual meaning of father as referred to by Jesus(PBUH) in the Bible, is God. This is a figure of speech in Hebrew. Most Christians claim that Jesus was the son of God that he claimed divinity .As we read the bible we see that all men who were god-fearing and holy where called the sons of God, to that Jesus is not an exception. Moses was the son of God, Abraham was the son of God and so on. God has sons by the tones in the bible! The following verses are a clear evidence.
"...Adam, which was the SON OF GOD."
"That the SONS OF GOD saw the daughters of men that they
"And when the SONS OF GOD came in unto the daughters of
men, and they bare children to them..."
"...Israel is MY SON, even my firstborn:"
"...for I (God) am a FATHER to Israel, and Ephraim is my
"...the Lord hath said unto me, (David) Thou art MY SON: this
day have I BEGOTTEN thee."
"For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the
SONS OF GOD."
The phrase ‘son of god’ is a metamorphic descriptive term. But most Christians go on and argue that every man was created by God and that Jesus(PBUH) was the ‘begotten son of God’.
John chapter 3 verse 16 reads:
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
This verse was thrown by thirty two scholars backed by fifty denominations of highest eminence out from the revised standard version (RSV), considered most accurate.
Jesus is mentioned 81 times in the New Testament as ‘son of man’
22. Ye men of Israel, hear these words; Jesus of Nazareth, a man approved of God among you by miracles and wonders and signs, which God did by him in the midst of you, as ye yourselves also know:
Allah gives a clear picture in the Glorious Quran about Jesus(PBUH) in surah An-Nisa chapter4 verse 171
(1) That he was the son of a woman, Mary, and therefore a man;
(2) But an apostle, a man with a mission from God, and therefore
entitled to honour;
(3) A Word bestowed on Mary, for he was created by God's word
"Be" (kun), and he was; 3:59.
(4) A spirit proceeding from God, but not God: his life and mission
were more limited than in the case of some other apostles,
though we must pay equal honour to him as a man of God. The
doctrines of Trinity, equality with God, and sonship, are
repudiated as blasphemies.1 God is independent of all needs and
has no need of a son to manage His affairs. The Gospel of John
(whoever wrote it) has put a great deal of Alexandrian Gnostic
mysticism round the doctrine of the Word (Greek, Logos), but it
is simply explained here, and our Sufis work on this
There is not a single unequivocal statement throughout the Bible, in all its 66
volumes of the Protestant versions, or in the 73 volumes of the Roman
Catholic versions, where Jesus claims to be God or where he says - 'worship
me.' Nowhere does he say that he and God Almighty are one and the same
Yeah I know Jesus wasnt Son of God, neither Muhammad was a God's Prophet... They died long time ago...get a life dude!
Paarsurrey when you get to know god for yourself you will understand the meaning of Jesus and all humans being the sons of god and god.
Correct, He ,Jesus, never asked anyone to worship Him, but He did not prevent them from doing so either. Thomas' reference to the resurrected Jesus as MY LORD AND MY GOD is a form of worship, and acknowledgement of Jesus as God. The apostles eventually on understanding the message of Jesus did worship Him as God, but in spirit and truth as He taught. The act of worshipping is acknowledging the status of the One being worshipped, as worthy of worship, and in spirit and truth mean truly heartfelt belief in the truths He taught and living by them.
Yes he did.
Read the New testament... he stated clearly. "Do not bow before me, but bow to the father in heaven only".

We are all the Sons and Daughters of our Father in Heaven.
This is the most intelligent thing I've read of late.
Thank you for taking the time to quote all those passages.
Now let me try to explain them with a bold statement or two.
Jesus is the son of God. David is the son of Jesus.
Jesus is God in man personified. David is mankind personified.
The writers of scripture (whoever they were ;o) experienced the pattern that God set out to awaken when he died to become man.
The encountered a son "from above" that called them "father" ...soon after they experienced the re-birth of God from within.
Every man will experience the re-birth of God within them in the FORM of Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ is naught but your own imagination.
Oh for the power of change...
The world's people have progressed
From the Blind - Leading the Blind
To Some DOG Doing it instead
If we are Christians we are called the Sons and Daughters of God. But Jesus was God in the flesh and He is alive today.
Don't be stupid, Jesus is a seperate entity, he was the only one to be created directly by God,hence 'his first born Son' everything else was created THROUGH Jesus. So how can Jesus be God if God Created him, use your brain. If you know your Bible you would know this. he is alive in the spirit realm NOT on earth.
Did that once and Jesus suddenly disappeared in a puff of smoke.
You are both correct. We are all sons and daughter of God. The flesh Jesus existed, exists, and will exist in is the flesh of your body. David symbolizes the fleshy bodies of mankind and is the son of Jesus.
Jesus is a separate state not entity. There is only one Jesus. One son and one father. How can Jesus be God if God created Him?!? If YOU know your bible you would know this. Did Jesus not say I and the Father are one.? Did he not say I am about my father's business? (of course he wasn't a man who said these things...its all a symbolic story) If you were an infinite God how would you continue to grow? How about by planting bits of yourself in man so that each seed in turn becomes infinite?
Jesus in scripture is God in man personified. The only spirit realm or heaven which exists is in your mind. Your Skull. Golgotha. Christmas is actually the birth if Christ within YOU! You will all experience it. Until you do you most will not believe me and turn. I in the state of Andrew am leading you to Christ. Choose this day who you serve. Do you choose the Lord? Then henceforth you are witnesses against yourself.
How can Jesus be God if God created Him?!?
if you ever want to believe that god is a spirit you would understand how this is possible. But let me enlighten you. Turn on the water faucet, the water is God, lots of it eh, now put a glass under the running water. See how the glass fills up, take the full glass away and see, God is still flowing out the faucet and the glass is full of God. The glass btw, is jesus.
God and jesus are outside of natural law and not of any inwardness. If god is inward then that is worship of the creation and not the creator
Romans 1:25 "Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshiped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen".
Deuteronomy 17:3 "And hath gone and served other gods, and worshiped them, either the sun, or moon, or any of the host of heaven, which I have not commanded"
Job 15:31 "Let not him that is deceived trust in vanity: for vanity shall be his recompence".
Job 35:13 "Surely God will not hear vanity, neither will the Almighty regard it".
Psalms 39:5 "Behold, thou hast made my days as an handbreadth; and mine age is as nothing before thee: verily every man at his best state is altogether vanity".
Ephesians 4:17 "This I say therefore, and testify in the Lord, that ye henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind". (but i digress )
If YOU know your bible you would know this
the same to you fellah.
heaven which exists is in your mind
John 3:13 And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven.
Luke 11:2 And he said unto them, When ye pray, say, Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, as in heaven, so in earth.
2 Peter 1:20 Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.
You seem to have a private interpretation.
Matthew 3:17 "And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased".
Son - huios - son
Here's the creation of that Son.
Luke 1:35 "And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God".
You will notice that sometimes the word son has a capital S as in matthew 3:17 above. This capital S marks a difference between the small s, son. Son and son. Son is THE Son of God and son are worshipers of god. Subtle difference but divine inspiration leaves nothing out.
Short and sweet.
you are welcome
Isa:9:6 Unto us a child is given, unto us a Son is born. thee government shall be upon His shoulders, His name shall be call The Mighty God, The Everlasting Father'
This is very Plain who Jesus is.
He is my everlasting Father which art in Heaven.
He is the Mighty God
