What Are All Gospel Verses that Mention the Word “Son”?

25 August, 2016
Q Thanks for your response. Hope you won't mind if I ask you another question: The Christians always insist that Jesus (peace be upon him) is the son of God, whereas, in the Bible there are also lots of biblical names where God (SWT) referred to them as son of God or even the only son of God. I can't remember the verses where I read them. Perhaps you may have more information on those verses.

Salam Dear Brother,

Thank you for your question and for contacting Ask About Islam.

The first set of Gospel verses are from Luke, which initially addresses Jesus (peace be upon him) as son of God, then son of Joseph; while at the end, Adam (peace be upon him) was addressed as the son of God:
