Paul speaks of Christ receiving the title “Son of God” at his resurrection. Vrs3–4, “concerning his Son, who was descended from David according to the flesh and declared to be the Son of God in power according to the Spirit of holiness by his resurrection from the dead, Jesus Christ our Lord.” This passage is best understood of Christ’s exaltation in his resurrection. While Jesus is God the Son throughout his human life, his resurrection assigns him the title “Son of God.” (Acts 13:32–33, Hebrews 5:5–6). Jesus has proven to be God’s true son and worthy of an eternal throne. It is after Jesus’s humanity is “perfected” (through Israel’s unity with him) that he receives the title, “Son of God” (Heb. 5:5–6). This was necessary for the Son to learn obedience through #suffering- (Christ rose from the dead and ascended to the Father’s right hand (fulfilliPsa. 110:1), all creation was put under his feet). In his exaltation, Jesus received right to rule over heaven and earth as the son of David, who is the son of God. What Adam, Israel, and David failed to prove their sonship—Jesus has done. His resurrection proves to be his coronation. Paul identifies the core of the gospel message- God in Christ unites all things in heaven and earth(Eph. 1:10), as the eternal Son of God is recognized as the Son of God to whom redemptive history has been pointing. “When the time had come, God sent forth his Son, born of woman, born under the law, to redeem those who were under the law, so that we might receive adoption as sons” (Gal. 4:4–5). When the divine Son took on humanity he came to fulfill the role marked out for him by Adam, Israel, and David. The #eternal #Word took on #flesh #dwelt among us (Yahweh holy spirit manifesting through Christ’s earthly mission) John identifies Jesus as “the only Son from the Father” and John 5:18 identifies the Son as “equal” with the Father, which led the Jewish leaders to desire Jesus’s death, they didn’t agree. In the Gospels, we find Jesus is not only the son of God, according to his humanity; he is the Son of God, according to his deity. #Jesus #is God’s Son, the one to whom all Scripture *leads, and the one -who is- God and man.
