Although it is a foundational confession for all Christians, much of the theological significance of Jesus' identity as 'the Son of God' is often overlooked or misunderstood. Moreover, this Christological concept stands at the center of today's Bible translation debates and increased ministry efforts to Muslims.
In Jesus the Son of God New Testament scholar D. A. Carson sheds light on this important issue with his usual exegetical clarity and theological insight. First he broadly surveys Jesus' biblical name as 'the Son of God,' and then by focusing on two key texts that speak of Christ's sonship. The book concludes with the implications of Jesus's divine sonship for how modern Christians think and speak about Christ, especially in relation to Bible translation and missionary engagement with Muslims across the globe.
