The Designation of Jesus Christ to be the Son of God
How can Jesus be the only begotten Son of God and the firstborn Son of God?
Christ is both the Son of Man and the Son of God. As the Son of Man, He is human, possessing humanity, and as the Son of God, He is divine, possessing divinity. The man Jesus was designated to be the Son of God in His humanity. The Son of God in verse 4 does not refer to Christ as the only begotten Son of God from eternity but to Christ as the firstborn Son of God, referred to in Romans 8:29. The firstborn Son of God was designated. His humanity was designated into the sonship with the divine element.
