In this episode, Pastor Adam Ericksen answers the question, “Do you believe Jesus is the Son of God?” When we explore Jesus as the Son of God, we need to ask what does that mean. The Gospels are very different. In the Gospel of John, the divinity of Jesus is emphasized. While the Gospel of Mark focuses on the humanity of Jesus, it also calls Jesus the Son of God. In that time in history, sons of god were people with power. The sons of god were reflections of god.
The Gospel writers say look to Jesus, the Son of God, to understand what God is like. Jesus subverts the patriarchal language and structure of his time.
The early Christians took the Roman propaganda and subvert it by making Jesus Lord and Son of God, not Caesar.
