Can Jesus be God and the Son of God?

If Jesus is God, how can He also be the Son of God? The marriage union illustrates the oneness of God the Father, God the Son, and God the Spirit. They are three in one.

Caller:  “Someone was asking, um, why do you say that Jesus is God?  I’ve been watching your TV program and I really like it, but if Jesus is the ‘Son of God’ then how can he also be the ‘Son of God?’  

Pastor Doug:  That’s a good question, but I think people misunderstand what the word ‘God’ means.  Now in the Bible it tells us that a man and a woman get married and that they become one flesh.  Two individuals, but they become one entity, one flesh in the sense that they become united in their purpose.   God the Father, the Son and Spirit are one God that are comprised of these three individuals. How can we say that Jesus is the ‘Son of God’ and also God?    

Well one of the ways is just look at the definitions for God we find in the Bible.    The Bible says that in the beginning God created well the Bible tells us that Jesus ‘created’ all things.  The Bible tells us that only God can forgive sin, the Bible tells us that Jesus forgives sin.  The Bible tells us to worship God only, and again the Bible tells us to worship Jesus and that the angels worship Him.  So as you look at the different definitions for God, even though Jesus is the Son of God, He meets all the definitions, so He is not only God’s Son, He is also God.
