Why is Christ called “the Son of God”? Discover an answer so simple you’ll wonder why you never saw it before—and so beautiful it’ll take your breath away.

No matter who you are or what position you have taken on the Sonship of Christ, you have no doubt felt the tension and complexity involved in trying to make sense out of the two apparently contradictory claims in Scripture.

On the one hand, the Bible calls Jesus God’s “only begotten Son” (John 3:16) and describes Him as occupying a subordinate position under the Father (John 14:28; 1 Corinthians 15:27-28).

On the other hand, Scripture also states that Jesus is “in very nature God,” insisting that He shares “equality with God” (Philippians 2:5-6) and that He is the One who “made” all things that are “made,” placing Him, by contrast, in the unmade category (John 1:1-3). He is even called “the everlasting Father” (Isaiah 9:6, KJV), the eternal “I AM” (Exodus 3:14; John 8:58), and “the Almighty” (Revelation 1:8).

The tension between the two identities is immediately apparent.

The solution needs to be consistent with both of these claims…

and worthy of our wonder.

Author, Ty Gibson, has written an easy-to-read book that explores the overall narrative of the Bible, as the big story it actually is, with key characters played out in an overarching, intentional plot line. By doing this, the meaning of the Sonship of Christ becomes unmistakably evident. If we really want to understand the sense in which Jesus is the Son of God, we need to pan out from our selected verses to take in the grand historical tale of both the Old and New Testaments.

And when we do that, a whole new world of biblical understanding opens before us and there is no need for strained interpretations.

“I simply cannot contain my enthusiasm for the message of this book. The Sonship of Christ is, above all, a joyous exploration and celebration of Jesus Christ, the Savior of the world. Thank you, Ty!” – Pastor David Asscherick
