Well, Jesus isn't the only Son of God, yet He is the only begotten..DBowling wrote: ↑Tue May 01, 2018 9:57 amLet me put in my .02 here
Since the time of Adam, every human (with the exception of Jesus) has sinned and thus is fallen.
However, God has made it possible for fallen humanity to become "children of God" when they put their faith in him and enter into relationship with him.
Which brings us back to Adam.
Who was the first person to have relationship with God?
Who was the first person to enter into covenant relationship with God?
Who was the first person to become a "son/child of God"?
And Luke 3 tracks the genealogy of God's covenant people (ie children of God) beginning with Adam (the first "son of God" - Luke 3:38) and finding it's ultimate climax in Jesus Christ, the One and Only Son of God.
I know you are posting the history of Gods people in the OT. I don't have a problem with most of what you say, but disagree with your conclusions and equation of 'sons of god' to be referring to those people in this circumstance.
If Noah is a son of God (and possibly his family being children of God but it seems they were saved through Noah), then there is no other son of God in Noahs time and yet nephilim were being produced. Do you see the problem? It contradicts saying son of God is exclusive to the adamite line. Because sons of God create nephilim.At the time of the Flood, Noah and his family were the faithful remnant of God's Covenant people "in the land" (which is different from saying that he was the only remnant of God's Covenant people in the land). Since Noah was righteous and found grace in the eyes of God, God allowed Noah and his family to survive the punishment that he brought on all the people "in the land" and continue God's line of Covenant people (ie children of God).
