What do we mean when we say that Jesus is the “Son of God”? And why does the title matter? Maybe you have pondered these things, and it has never quite made sense. You wouldn’t be alone, the question is a common one; and especially with current controversies over how the title should be translated in Muslim contexts, a voice of sanity is needed. D. A. Carson is such a voice, and intends for his book Jesus the Son of God to “foster clear thinking” (p12) on these issues.
I’ve begun reading D. A. Carson’s small commentary on the Sermon on the Mount to go along with my morning reading through Matthew.
