Verse of the Day (July 22, 2020) #BMSeminary – When the expression Son of God is used concerning Christ, it delineates the relationship between the first two members of the Trinity. The Hebrew expression Son of implies one with the same nature as the father. In this sense there is no real difference between “Son of God” and “God the Son.” Both emphasize the deity of Christ and His unique relationship with the Father. Illustration: When Jesus identified God as His Father, implying that He was “the Son of God,” the Jews understood this as a claim to deity (John 5:18). When Peter identified Jesus as “the Son of the living God” (v. 16), it was the result of spiritual insight (v. 17). Application: As we become increasingly intimate with Christ, we should also become increasingly aware that Jesus is the Son of God. (First Reference, Ps. 2:7; Primary Reference, Matt. 16:16; cf. John 3:16.) [KJV Study Bible, HarperCollins]
