Jesus begotten Son of God #6 Anointed Son of God, Adam and Abraham

The Anointed begotten Son of God

13. Son of Adam and Abraham

He would be a new Adam and also a son of Abraham – A Jew born, and as such has a right to the first offer of salvation. Salvation came to him in the sense that his heart was turned from sin and selfishness toward God and righteousness. Jesus had faith in Abraham and as such could be counted as one of his children.

“And יהושע said to him, “Today deliverance has come to this house – since he also is a son of Aḇraham. “For the Son of Aḏam has come to seek and to save what was lost.” And as they were hearing this, He spoke another parable, because He was near Yerushalayim and they thought the reign of Elohim was about to be manifested straightaway. He therefore said, “A certain nobleman went to a distant country to receive for himself a reign and to return.” (Luke 19:9-12 The Scriptures 1998+)

For us this may be an assurance that all who have the faith of Abraham may be counted as children of Abraham as disciples of Jesus.

When the apostle Matthew gives us the family tree we clearly can see the connection of Jeshua/Jesus with Adam, Abraham and David. In his 1st chapter he provides basic information about the origin of Jesus, genesis of Jesus. His birth certificate is certified and guaranteed in Scripture. For Matthew this is not just his birth, but his origin (genesis, with one “nee,” Greek letter n, in the best manuscripts). That same word genesis opens the entire New Testament — as giving us the genealogy of the Son of God (Matt. 1:1)[1].

14. The Anointed son of God

The people could look out to the one who was going to be the Son of the living God.

“And Shim’on Kĕpha answering, said, “You are the Messiah, the Son of the living Elohim.” And יהושע answering, said to him, “Blessed are you, Shim’on Bar-Yonah, for flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but My Father in the heavens.” (Matthew 16:16-17 The Scriptures 1998+)

Peter had received the vision we as Christians all should and can receive when we are willing to open up our mind to the Father of that promised anointed one. Jeshua or Jesus, as he is better known, is the Anointed One, the Messiah, whom God promised and provided for our salvation.

“Then Kĕpha, filled with the Set-apart Spirit, said to them, “Rulers of the people and elders of Yisra’ĕl: “If today we are called to account for a good deed towards a sick man, by whom he has been healed, let it be known to all of you, and to all the people of Yisra’ĕl, that in the Name of יהושע[2] Messiah of Natsareth, whom you impaled, whom Elohim raised from the dead, by Him this one stands before you, healthy. “This is ‘the stone which was rejected by you builders, which has become the chief cornerstone.’ “And there is no deliverance in anyone else, for there is no other Name under the heaven given among men by which we need to be saved.” And seeing the boldness of Kĕpha and Yoḥanan, and perceiving that they were unlearned and ordinary men, they marvelled. And they recognised that they had been with יהושע.” (Acts 4:8-13 The Scriptures 1998+)


[1] “The book of the generation of Yahshua the Messiah, the son of David, the son of Abraham.” (Matthew 1:1 KJBPNV)

[2] Hebrew Yahushua or Yeshua = Jeshua, meaning ‘He shall save’ or ‘He who saves’

“Messiah” is the Hebrew equivalent of the Greek word “Christos” or “Christ”.

Jesus did say he was the Messiah.  He said he was Messiah to the Samaritan woman at the well at Sychar.  John 4:25-26

Jesus acknowledged being the Christ, after Peter’s confession in Matthew 16:15-17

Luke 4:18-21Luke 4:28-29 + Matthew 26:63-68

Jesus never said he was God the son but he claimed to be the son of God in John 10:36

  14. What did Jesus mean when he said “before Abraham was, I am”?
    John 8:56-59
    Whether the action which happens “before” is future, present or past is determined by the following verb.
    Christ has already explained the context in v.56 “Your father Abraham rejoiced that he would see my day. He saw it and was glad.” The seeing was in the past. But when was Christ’s day? Clearly it is future to Abraham: firstly 27-30AD, when Christ was preaching, culminating in his sacrifice, resurrection and ascension, but also secondly the “day” of Christ relates to the other “day of the Lord” verses in Christ’s teaching and elsewhere in the New and Old Testaments — the day when Christ will raise Abraham from the dead and Abraham will see Christ.
