Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion. I will declare the decree: the LORD hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee. / Messiah mentioned in vs.2! (Ex.4:21,22,23/ Hosea 11:1)


Here we have the LORD speaking through David. David is the physical king of Israel /1 Chronicles 11:1/ 2 Sam.5), David is being used to "declare the decree".. Israel is the son of God (represented in King Messiah and King David). While every mention of "Servant" in Isaiah can be related to Israel (The nation) or Jacob, in a Hebraic context we have the Word "servant" also relate to (examples): David (Is.37:35), Isaiah (Is.20:3), Messiah (42:1; 65:8)


Ex.4:22 And thou shalt say unto Pharaoh, Thus saith the LORD, Israel is my son, even my firstborn:


Kingdom (Israel)- consists of a king and his dominion.


Israel has been given foreshadows throughout the Word to observe. King David spoke of the authority of Mashiach (Messiah). Messiah is The King that will issue in The Kingdom of YHVH.



While the Pharisees were gathered together, Jesus asked them, Saying, What think ye of Christ? whose son is he? They say unto him, The son of David. He saith unto them, How then doth David in spirit call him Lord, saying, The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand, till I make thine enemies thy footstool? If David then call him Lord, how is he his son? And no man was able to answer him a word, neither durst any man from that day forth ask him any more questions. (Mk.12:36/ Lk.20:42-43/ Acts 2:29,30,34/ Acts 13:33/ Ps.110:1)


Messiah is called the only begotten son of GOD. How do we apply this to Israel being the son of God? Mashiach is The King of the dominion which is Israel. They are echad (H#259 /unified One/ Gen.2:24), for we are told messiah is the bridesgroom of Israel. Thus when Israel was called Begotten son this Included Mashiach. To say "Begotten" (yalad) son (Ben) of G-d is to say raised up messenger. Son in its most general (metaphoric (spiritual) sense is to say one who carries the Shem (name and character) of another. However Israel as a whole strayed and fell into idolatry and its said that G-D even wrote her a bill of divorce. As a whole they were no longer carring the Shem of G-D. Thus Israel had need of a redeemer. One in transgression cant be their own redeemer they have need of one without blemish. This one came from Israel and was Yahshua. Thus at that time he was the ONLY BEGOTTEN SON in that he never sinned and thus was the only one who ALWAYS carried the shem of G-D.

Where Israel broke the coveneant Messiah fulfilled it! Messiah is the resTORAHation of Israel. This is evident when the Law (Torah) gives the judgement (effect) of (spiritual) adultry/ Lev.20:10(idolatry).


Spiritual Adultry (Idolatry) of:


Jer.3:8 (divorce)/ (Hosea 4-8) Hosea 4:12-19 (15)/


Jer.3:8, Jer.5, Jer.10, Jer.16, Jer.17


Only the death of the mate could free one from the vow made with The Lord (Heb.9:16-17). Messiah died so that Israel could be free from thier transgression (and thus be restored to God's grace). The wage of sin is death thus Messiah (King of Israel) fulfills the Passover sacrifice (1 Cor.5:6-8).


Many that seem to only think literally may struggle with the concept of Messiah being the only begotten son when Israel is mentioned as the son of God as well (even with the documentation that they are One (echad). 

"Begotten" isn't limited to the context of the outcome of physical sex. When used in the figurative the word yalad (H#3205) means to raise up, bring forth, produce (create), or resurrect. This use of the literal is called Anthropopatheia (compare to Acts 13:33/ Ps.2:6-7/ Rom.1:3,4/ Col.1:18/ Rev.1:5....)/ (II Sam. 7:14/ Ps. 89:27)

Only a spiritual sense can apply to such areas as Ps.2:7 (Num.11:12/ Deut.32:18/). Isreal was born that day but not in the sense that it came forth from a womans womb. Everyone knows the nation of Israel isnt physical offspring of G-d having physical sex except maybe muhammad which feels the need to call the following a revelation: 112:3 "allah begets not nor is he begotten"

A primitive root; to bear young; causatively to beget; medically to act as midwife; specifically to show lineage: - bear, beget, birth ([-day]), born, (make to) *bring *forth (children, young), *bring *up, calve, child, *come, *be delivered (of a child), time of delivery, gender, hatch, labour, (do the office of a) midwife, declare pedigrees, be the son of, (woman in, woman that) travail (-eth, -ing woman).

Rashi on Ps.2:7 "'begotten you': to be called My son and to be beloved to Me as a son for their sake, as it is stated (II Sam. 7:14) concerning Solomon: “I will be to him a father, and he shall be to Me a son.” We find further concerning David (Ps. 89:27) “He shall call Me, ‘You are my Father, my God, and the Rock of my salvation.’”

***  Not only is it obvious that Israel wasn't a phy offspring of G-d having physical sex, but Yalad is also used to describe mountains Ps.90:2 and day Zeph.2:2 (Other obvious areas in which yalad is Not speaking of bringing forth physical children Job.15:35/ Ps.7:14; / Pro. 27:1/ Is.33:11; 55:10; 59:4/....)


Messiah Is Walking Torah/ Living Sacrifice. Torah is the foundation and it’s fulfilled in Moshiach for his position is at The Right Hand of Yah. 

Son is the Hebrew:

 Ben H# 1121

From H1129; a son (as builder of the family name /Character), in the widest sense (of literal and figurative relationship, including grandson, subject, nation, quality or condition, etc., (like H1,H251, etc.): -  + afflicted, age, [Ahoh-] [Ammon-] [Hachmon-] [Lev-]ite, [anoint-]ed one, appointed to, (+) arrow, [Assyr-] [Babylon-] [Egypt-] [Grec-]ian, one born, bough, branch, breed, + (young) bullock, + (young) calf, X came up in, child, colt, X common, X corn, daughter, X of first, + firstborn, foal, + very fruitful, + postage, X in, + kid, + lamb, (+) man, meet, + mighty, + nephew, old, (+) people, + rebel, + robber, X servant born, X soldier, son, + spark, + steward, + stranger, X surely, them of, + tumultuous one, + valiant[-est], whelp, worthy, young (one), youth

A Son (Ben) is one who carries the character (Name) of His Father. Basically one who submits to his will. We see this in the Greek as well! "Teknon"Greek #5043 offspring, children

  1. child
  2. a male child, a son
  3. metaph.
    1. the name transferred to that intimate and reciprocal relationship formed between men by the bonds of love, friendship, trust, just as between parents and children
    2. in affectionate address, such as patrons, helpers, teachers and the like employ: my child
    3. in the NT, pupils or disciples are called children of their teachers, because the latter by their instruction nourish the minds of their pupils and mould their characters
    4. children of God: in the OT of "the people of Israel" as especially dear to God, in the NT, in Paul's writings, all who are led by the Spirit of God and thus closely related to God

Acts 3:26 (Kjv- son/ Nkjv- servant)

- "paheece" #3816-

a boy (as often beaten with impunity), or (by analogy) a girl, and (generally) a child; specifically a slave or servant (especially a minister to a king; and by eminence to God): - child, maid (-en), (man) servant, son, young man.

It's in Messiah that the character of Israel (Prince of God/inheritance) is established.

Rom.8:14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God


Throughout the Word we are given examples of acknowledgement of one ("first born") son when we know there is (a prior 1st born) more than one physical son. In each of these examples the one not *acknowledged has been sent away and a seperation been made. Remember now that ben (son) is to say one that carries the name/character of the father.

Father has to Acknowledge!- Deut.21:17


Cain & Able (twins)

Cain did not honor his relations with YHVH. Cain's fruits reflected his pride and selfishness. When it came time for harvest of fruits Cain did not recieve a blessing cause he did not bless The Father (YHVH)/ Gen.4:5,7/, and was sent awayfrom his presence (Gen.4:16)

Cain was not acknowledged as the inheritor of Adam, rather only acknowledged as the indvidual who slew Able when Adam's line of inheritance was listed in Gen.4:24- Gen.5:32 (* Gen.5:4)


Isaac & Ishmael

Ishmael is obviously mentioned as a physical son of Abram. Abram was later called Abraham and received a seed of promise from the LORD Isaac. Sarah had Abraham send Ishmael and his mother (Hagar) away. This cut out any inheritance Ishmael would have claimed from Abraham according to the promise that was in Isaac (Gen.17:15-21). (Ishmael was blessed and said to be considered a wild man whose hand would be against every man and every man's hand against him/ These are not attributes needed for the blessing and promise passed to Isaac and Israel) Ishmael born to Abram Not Abraham (Gen.16:16) Abram's name (shem) was changed after the birth of Ishmael.


Heb.11:17 By faith Abraham, when he was tried, offered up Isaac: and he that had received the promises offered up his only begotten son


Israel & Mashiach (echad)/Son Of God


Messiah is called the only begotten son of God

Zech.12:10/ Is.9:6-7/ Jn.3:16,18/ Jn.1:18/ 1 Jn.4:9/ Heb.1:5/ Heb.5:5/


1 Jn.5:5/ 1 Jn.4:15/ Gal.2:20/ Heb.4:14/ Eph.4:13/ Gal.4:4/ Matt.27:54/ 1 Cor.1:9/ 2 Cor.1:19/.....


Spiritual Israel / including the graphted in

Gal.3:24-29/ 1 Jn.3:2/ Philippians 2:15/ Gal.4:6-7/ Rom.8:14



Within the culture of Israel the firstborn was to recieve the inheritance, yet in these examples this isnt the case. We have another example of this as well.


Jacob (Israel) & Esau (twins)

Gen.25:23 And the LORD said unto her, Two nations are in thy womb, and two manner of people shall be separated from thy bowels; and the one people shall be stronger than the other people; and the elder shall serve the younger. (Rom.9:12)


Esau like Cain was more interested in his earthly pleasures than in pleasing the Father YHVH. This was evident when he sold his birth right to Jacob. Jacob recieved the inheritance of the first born as The prophacy had proclaimed. When one refuses to acknowledge YHVH he has no reason to acknowledge them either when it comes to his blessings. Afterall we are created for his pleasure (Rev.4:11), therefore its important to take notice if we are in fact pleaseing The Father. Matt.20:16

---------Those in covenant are sons of God----------

Jn.1:12-13 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.

1 Jn.2:28-29;3:1 And now, little children, abide in him; that, when he shall appear, we may have confidence, and not be ashamed before him at his coming. If ye know that he is righteous, ye know that every one that doeth righteousness is born of him./ 31 Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not. (Gal.3:26-29)

Rom.8:14,16 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:

If Yeshua (Jesus) was born of a literal “virgin” (thus no phy. father) then logically who would be his Father? Her fathers fathers fathers fathers met the line of Moshiach and is the only tribal identification through the Y Chromosome zera (seed) of the male which is required for Tribal identification. THE “seed” of the woman (Gen. 3:15)  from Eve to Mary. Torah never required it come to Mary by physical sex only that the zera be present. Yoseph his father in law also met the line.

Begotten son of G-D means - Raised up messenger of G-D Simple as that When Applied. 

Comment by William H. on January 25, 2018 at 2:10pm

G-D referred to as Father (Avinu, Abba) in Tanakh. Example who is the "Everlasting Father" Is.9:6/ Throughout the Bible we find God portrayed as a Father. This portrayal, however, is surprisingly rare in the Old Testament. There God is specifically called the Father of the nation of Israel ( Deut 32:6 ; Isa 63:16 ; [twice] 64:8 ; Jeremiah 3:4 Jeremiah 3:19 ; 31:9 ; Mal 1:6 ; 2:10 ) or the Father of certain individuals ( 2 Sam 7:14 ; 1 Chron 17:13 ; 22:10 ; 28:6 ; Psalm 68:5 ; 89:26 ) only fifteen times. (At times the father imagery is present although the term "Father" is not used [ Exod 4:22-23 ; Deut 1:31 ; 8:5 ; 14:1 ; Psalm 103:13 ; Jer 3:22 ; 31:20 ; Hosea 11:1-4 ; Mal 3:17 ])." ....Psalm 82:6
I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High.

Comment by His_Will on July 12, 2017 at 5:39pm"THE SONS OF GOD" IN GEN. 6:2, 4.

Adam is called "Son of G-d" in Lk.3:38 cause he was directly created By G-d and had no parents (like angels). Different concept that carrying the Shem of G-d thuss "son of G-d" (even though Adam was given dominion and named all beasts of the field).

Comment by William H. on July 17, 2016 at 8:40pm

 In the Old Testament,angels, just and pious men, the descendants of Seth, and the kings of Israel are all called "sons of God."[2] In the New Testament, Adam,[3] and, most notably,Jesus Christ[2] are called "son of God," while followers of Jesus are called, "sons of God."[4]- wikipedia

Yeshua is Adon Olam! 

Comment by William H. on January 21, 2016 at 8:17pm

A Random Facebook OP.

"In John 1:1 why didn't John just write...

In the beginning was Jesus, and Jesus was with God, and Jesus was God. ????" 


The Man Yeshua is related in verse 14. Many take vs.14 out of context. ..."the Word was *made flesh" (meaning it was prior to). The term ("Made") here is the Greek "ginomai". Throughout the bible the same term is translated as: fulfilled, be done, come, become, made, be married to, be preferred, however most commonly translated as "come to pass" (82 times to be exact! in the English "kjv"). So why was flesh used (needed) for the Word of G-d to come to pass? Heb.2:14 When Moses, kings, angels, prophets, and people of the covenant are called Elohim/Theos (or Adon) the subject is the will of G-D being done in them not that their flesh is G-d. Jn 1:1 is using "Word" there to communicate what it wants to communicate. No reason to change the text cause we want if differ (Yes Yeshua is called the Word does that mean The Word is no longer The Word or that it should be used?).

Joh 1:12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: .... Joh 1:13 Which were born, *not *of *blood, nor of the will of the *flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.

Is Tovia Singer ("Jewish" proselytizer) honest in what he says? 


Comment by His_Will on July 22, 2014 at 3:56pm

Lk.22:70 ειπον δε παντες συ ουν ει ο υιος του θεου ο δε προς αυτους εφη υμεις λεγετε οτι εγω ειμι

Kjv "Then said they all, Art thou then the Son of God? And he said unto them, Ye say that I am."

I have noticed that modern translations of this verse add to the end of this verse. I have seen one (NEW earth translation) that reads "They all said are you the son of God? He said to them, you say it because I am" and another (NEW Hebrew translation)  say they were saying it and he was agreeing with them because they know it and the ISV says "Then they all asked, are you the son of God? He answered them you said it - I am"


Fact is these versions are adding to the texts. (Yes Yeshua is the son of G-d but must we add to our earliest texts?) What was the reason for these modern translations to do this? Well The greek texts does use the term οτι which means because (and some say it means since). It shows something being inferred. "You say that I AM (son of G-d)" THus you are infering I am son of G-d.

The saying "You say" (that I Am) as a way of responce is seen as a Hebraism, denoting affrimation (as noted on Bullingers Companion bible/ Bullinger being a Hebrew scholar and the only Christian allowed by Jewish rabbis to personally proof the Masorah) Thus it seems the scribes of these new translations understood the inference and took it upon them selves to add it to the texts its self to benefit the reader.

"You say that I am" gives the same concept of affirmation in a sentance as if I were to ask "because you say that i am?" weather it be sarcastic or no.

The οτι being the term in the kjv of "that".

Just wanted to share in case other come across those who add this in the texts. I personally dont agree with adding to the texts for the benifit of those who dont study. I noticed these new translations from being in discussions where someone asks did Jesus ever say I am the son of G-d and these new translations were used to say yes when in fact he never actually said I am the son of G-d in the text.

Comment by William H. on October 22, 2013 at 1:19pm

Is.9:6 relates back to Is.7:14 where the son being born unto us is prophetic! Not only goes Torah (Gen) confirm this in relation to zera (seed) of the WOMAN, but the NT reveals that the more broad Almah doesnt rule out phy virgin while it doesnt spacifically mean it , it is to be exspected.


There are those that have contempt for Messiah that read Is.9 not relating it to these other areas for proper context and then they get to Is.6 and claim its speaking in present tense as if that rules out any chance of it being prophetic.

Its called a Prolepsis................ to speak in present tense in relation to future event. EXAMPLES: Prolepsis (Ampliatio); or Anticipation (Heb.2:8). Anticipating what is going to be , and speaking of future things as present./// Prolepsis (occupatio); or Anticipation, Answering an arguement by anticipating it before it is used. (1) Open, When the anticipated objection is both answered and stated (Matt.3:9) (2) Closed. When the anticipated objection is either not plainly stated or not answered (Rom.10:18).......
