Jesus begotten Son of God #14 Beloved Preminent Son and Mediator originating in Mary

Previously we saw how Jesus came into life by becoming implanted into the womb, special way, in the human being Miryam/Mary.

“18 Now the birth of Jesus Christ took place under these circumstances: When His mother Mary had been promised in marriage to Joseph, before they came together, she was found to be pregnant [through the power] of the Holy Spirit.

19 And her [promised] husband Joseph, being a just and upright man and not willing to expose her publicly and to shame and disgrace her, decided to repudiate and dismiss (divorce) her quietly and secretly.

20 But as he was thinking this over, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, Joseph, descendant of David, do not be afraid to take Mary [as] your wife, for that which is conceived in her is of (from, out of) the Holy Spirit.

21 She will bear a Son, and you shall call His name Jesus [the Greek form of the Hebrew Joshua, which means Savior], for He will save His people from their sins [that is, prevent them from [a: Marvin Vincent, Word Studies in the New Testament.] failing and missing the true end and scope of life, which is God].

22 All this took place that it might be fulfilled which the Lord had spoken through the prophet,

23 Behold, the virgin shall become pregnant and give birth to a Son, and they shall call His name Emmanuel — which, when translated, means, God with us. (A #Isa 7:14)

24 Then Joseph, being aroused from his sleep, did as the angel of the Lord had commanded him: he took [her to his side as] his wife. ” (Matthew 1:18-24 Amplified 1987 Frances Siewert Bible)

The Anointed begotten Son of God

33. Mediator

The Messiah, our only man mediator and Saviour, is to be defined first by Matthew and Luke and then by Paul in 1 Timothy 2:5, and then only later by John, and not in a way which pits New Testament book against book and results in confusion and disunity, excommunication, even murder!

“For there is one Elohim,1 and one Mediator between Elohim and men, the Man Messiah יהושע, {Footnote: 11 Cor. 8:6, Eph. 4:6, Mk. 12:29-34.} “ (1 Timothy 2:5 The Scriptures 1998+)

“But to us \@there is but\@ one God, the Father, of whom \@are\@ all things, and we in him; and one Lord Yahshua the Messiah, by whom \@are\@ all things, and we by him.” (1 Corinthians 8:6 KJBPNV)

“You have been shown it, to know that יהוהHimself is Elohim; there is no one beside Him. “ (Deuteronomy 4:35 The Scriptures 1998+)

"Scripture...sets before us Christ alone ...

“And you shall know today, and shall recall to your heart that יהוה Himself is Elohim in the heavens above and on the earth beneath; there is none else. “ (Deuteronomy 4:39 The Scriptures 1998+)

“one Elohim and Father of all,1 who is above all, and through all, and in you all. {Footnote: 1Mk. 12:32,34, 1 Cor. 8:6, 1 Tim. 2:5, Mk. 12:29-34.} “ (Ephesians 4:6 The Scriptures 1998+)

It is not Jesus who is the Father but Jehovah is, and He is also above Jesus, who said to his apostles: ““You heard that I said to you, ‘I am going away and I am coming to you.’ If you did love Me, you would have rejoiced that I said, ‘I am going to the Father,’ for My Father is greater than I.” (John 14:28 The Scriptures 1998+)

“And I wish you to know that the head of every man is the Messiah, and the head of woman is the man, and the head of Messiah is Elohim.” (1 Corinthians 11:3 The Scriptures 1998+)

Therefore let us do not forget: “for God is one; {#de 6:4} and there is but one mediator between God and humanity, Yeshua the Messiah, himself human,” (1 Timothy 2:5 CJB)

And as a human he had a beginning and found his end of his life in his dead on the stake[1]. “the Messiah redeemed us from the curse pronounced in the \@torah\@ by becoming cursed on our behalf; for the \@Tanakh\@ says, “everyone who hangs from a stake comes under a curse.” {#de 21:22-23}” (Galatians 3:13 CJB)

Jesus did not come out of a sort of a simulated death. He was taken out of death by his Father. It was the God of our fathers who rose up Jesus, whom was murdered by hanging upon a piece of wood [2].

“The Elohim of our fathers raised up יהושע whom you laid hands on, hanging Him on a timber.” (Acts 5:30 The Scriptures 1998+)

34. Preeminent Son

Jesus is thus also God’s “preeminent Son,” “firstborn and brought into the world” by special procreation.

Albrecht notes, referring to the copious research of Theodore Zahn: “I am following here in John 1:13 [3]an extremely old reading found in Irenaeus and Tertullian.

The singular verb ‘was begotten’ [aorist again of gennao] referring to Jesus, not believers, prevailed in texts from the second to the fourth century in the West, and left important traces in the East also. John confesses expressly here his belief in the virginal begetting and birth of Jesus, which Matthew and Luke describe in much more detail” (Albrecht, note on his translation of John 1:13, Anthony Buzzard’s translation of the German).

The Jerusalem Bible adopts this reading also. Tertullian actually accuses the Gnostics of trying to rid Scripture of this evidence of the virginal begetting — by diverting the reference from Jesus to Christian rebirth! This meant changing the verb from an original singular to a plural.[4]

35. The beloved son

Luke presents Jesus as Son of God related to God in a parallel fashion to Adam (Luke 3:38)[5] and shows us on other occasions that his and our Father considered Jesus as His son. At the baptism of his nephew John the Baptist heard the voice, like all the people around that place at the Jordan, and saw a bodily form (sōmatikōi eidei) or the dove giving sound of the voice of the Divine Spirit (pneuma theou).

“And having been immersed, יהושע went up immediately from the water, and see, the heavens were opened, and He saw the Spirit of Elohim descending like a dove and coming upon Him, and see, a voice out of the heavens, saying, “This is My Son, the Beloved, in whom I did delight.” “ (Matthew 3:16-17 The Scriptures 1998+)

Baptism of Christ. Jesus is baptized in the Jo...

And a voice came out of the heavens, “You are My Son, the Beloved, in whom I did delight.” (Mark 1:11 The Scriptures 1998+)

““See, My Servant whom I have chosen, My Beloved in whom My being did delight. I shall put My Spirit upon Him, and He shall declare right-ruling to the nations. “He shall not strive nor cry out, nor shall anyone hear His voice in the streets. “A crushed reed He shall not break, and smoking flax He shall not quench, till He brings forth right-ruling forever.1 {Footnote: 1This is according to the Shem-Tob Hebrew text. However, this passage is a quote from Isa. 42:1-3 where it reads right-ruling unto truth.} “And the nations shall trust in His Name.” Then they brought to Him one who was demon-possessed, blind and dumb. And He healed him, so that the blind and dumb man both spoke and saw. And all the crowds were amazed and said, “Is this the Son of Dawiḏ?” “ (Matthew 12:18-23 The Scriptures 1998+)

“And see, Mosheh and Ěliyahu appeared to them, talking with Him. And Kĕpha answering, said to יהושע, “Master, it is good for us to be here. If You wish, let us make here three booths: one for You, one for Mosheh, and one for Ěliyahu.”1 {Footnote:1Mark 9:4.} While he was still speaking, see, a bright cloud overshadowed them. And see, a voice came out of the cloud, saying, “This is My Son, the Beloved, in whom I did delight. Hear Him!” And when the taught ones heard, they fell on their faces and were much afraid. “ (Matthew 17:3-6 The Scriptures 1998+)

“And it came to be, as they were parting from Him, Kĕpha said to יהושע, “Master, it is good for us to be here. And let us make three booths: one for You, and one for Mosheh, and one for Ěliyahu,” not knowing what he said. And as he was saying this, a cloud came and overshadowed them. And they were afraid as they entered the cloud. And a voice came out of the cloud, saying, “This is My Son, the Beloved. Hear Him!” And when the voice had spoken, יהושע was found alone. And they were silent, and reported to no one in those days any of what they had seen.” (Luke 9:33-36 The Scriptures 1998+)

Those writings from the apostles should made it clear that we got a child in a family who was given a special place in the heart of the Creator, because it was a righteous child willing to take up the command of its Father and therefore receiving the esteem, honour and glory, more than anybody else. So it was Gods voice from the grandeur of the sh’khinah, the magnificent glory, which let us know that Jesus, resplendent with light from God the Father, was His beloved son.[6]

“For when He received respect and esteem from Elohim the Father, such a voice came to Him from the Excellent Esteem, “This is My Son, the Beloved in whom I did delight.” And we heard this voice which came from heaven when we were with Him on the set-apart mountain. And we have the prophetic word made more certain, which you do well to heed as a light that shines in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts, knowing this first, that no prophecy of Scripture came to be of one’s own interpretation, for prophecy never came by the desire of man, but men of Elohim spoke, being moved by the Set-apart Spirit.” (2 Peter 1:17-21 The Scriptures 1998+)

The attentive reader of Scripture will hear echoes of Israel as Son of God (Exodus 4:22; Hosea 11:1) and Davidic kings (Psalm. 2). Like Israel before him, Jesus, the Son of God, goes through water to begin his spiritual journey (Luke 3:21; cp. Exodus 14, 15). In the wilderness and under trial Jesus proves himself to be the obedient Son unlike Israel who failed in the wilderness (Exodus 14-17; 32-34; Numeri 11).

36. Originating in Mary

From the nativity story to the story of the beginning of Jesus ‘public life we see the line of the human link and often we also shall get to see the fragility of the Master Teacher, who sometimes got tired of the human crowd around him.

Gross St Martin - Grablegungsgruppe - Maria (virgin mary)
Virgin Mary at dead body of her son Jesus - Grablegungsgruppe in Groß St. Martin, Köln.
The whole story is ruined if another dimension is added to the story, namely that the Son of God was already a pre-existing member of an eternal Trinity. Gabriel has carefully defined the nature of Jesus’ Sonship and his words exclude any origin other than a supernatural origin in Mary.

Gabriel’s Jesus, Son of God — the biblical Son — originates in Mary. He is conceived and begotten by miracle. In pre-existence Christology, the main plank of Trinitarianism, a conception/begetting in Mary’s womb does not bring about the existence of God’s Son. According to Gabriel it does. Neither Gabriel nor Luke could possibly have been Trinitarians.

No need for centuries of complex wrangling over words. All that is required is belief of the angelic communication: “For this reason precisely (dio kai) — the creative miracle of God through His divine power — the child will be Son of God.” For no other reason, for this reason only. (Note the very watered-down rendering of the NIV, “so the holy one to be born will be called the Son of God.”)


[1] “The Messiah has redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed \@is\@ every one that hangs on a tree:” (Galatians 3:13 KJBPNV)

“his body is not to remain all night on the tree, but you must bury him the same day, because a person who has been hanged has been cursed by god—so that you will not defile your land, which \@ADONAI\@ your god is giving you to inherit.” (Deuteronomy 21:23 CJB)

[2] “The God of our fathers raised up Jesus, whom ye slew and hanged on a tree.” (Acts 5:30 KJ21)

[3]12 But to all who did receive him, *x12.1 who believed in his name, *x12.2 he gave the right *x12.3 to become *x12.4 children of God, 13 who *x13.1 were born, *x13.2 not of blood *x13.3 nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God. “ (John 1:12-13 ESV)

[4] Anthony Buzzard, editor of Focus on the Kingdom writes in” Jesus’ Long-Form Birth Certificate Released by Luke and Matthew (and John), 2000 years ago, and Recorded in Scripture” (June 2011)

[5] “the son of Enosh, the son of Seth, the son of Adam, the son of God.” (Luke 3:38 NIV)

[6] “for we were there when he received honor and glory from god the father; and the voice came to him from the grandeur of the \@sh’khinah\@, saying, “this is my son, whom I love; I am well pleased with him!”” (2 Peter 1:17 CJB)

  • The Seed Of The Woman Bruised (christadelphians.wordpress.com)
    Jesus was born of his mother, and grew up to reverence God, his Father. We learn that he “increased in wisdom and stature and in favour with God and man” (Luke 2:52). This expresses normal development; but if Jesus were God such a statement is incomprehensible; or if he pre-existed, it meant that he must have forgotten everything he knew in his previous existence, and had to learn it all again!
  • On the Nature of Christ (christadelphians.wordpress.com)
    The testimonies which teach the indivisible unity of the Deity, as the One Father, out of whom ALL things have proceeded, and who is supreme above all, even above Christ (I Cor. 11:3), are inconsistent with the Trinitarian representation of God. The supremacy and unity of the Father would not be affirmable if there were three co-equal personalities in His One personality—a doctrine which presents us with a contradiction in terms as well as in sense.
  • This Precious JESUS…………. (scripturalthoughts.wordpress.com)
    Called of God an high priest after the order of Melchisedec. Heb 5:10 (KJV)
  • Jesus had brothers and sisters (bjorkbloggen.wordpress.com)
    It’s almost like a curse for women to not be able to have children so why would Mary of all women have to go through life without any children (apart from Jesus who died) or grandchildren? That would indicate that she certainly was not BLESSED at all. Nowhere does the Word of God say that Mary had no other children. Normally young women are able to bare children so to assume that Mary was out of luck is to start with an answer and trying to find support for this answer in the Bible.
