Jesus, the Son of God

Even though John makes it clear that Jesus is fully divine, when someone said Jesus was the “Son of God,” they weren’t necessarily perceiving his deity. They were saying Jesus is the rightful king of Israel to whom God is a Father. They were saying the time had come for God’s anointed king to sit on the throne and rule over Israel (and all the earth). They were saying Psalm 2 was being fulfilled in Jesus.
