Title "Son of God" does not mean Divinity
Professor Reza Aslan on the title, "Son of God".
Reza Aslan teaches that Jesus did not call himself by the title "Son of God" but rather others ascribed this title to him and numerous figures are called by this title in the Bible.
Nor, by the way, did Jesus call himself "Son of God," another title that others seem to have ascribed to him. (Contrary to Christian conceptions, the title "Son of God" was not a description of Jesus's filial connection to God but rather the traditional designation for Israel's kings. Numerous figures are called "Son of God" in the Bible, none more often than David, the greatest king - 2 Samuel 7:14; Psalms 2:7, 89:26; Isaiah 42:1).
