Son of God

Son of God is a title that was applied to angels (Job 1:6, 2:1), Israel (Ex. 4:22; Hos. 11:1) and her kings (Solomon in 2 Sam. 7:14; 1 Chron. 28:6). Through the line of kings descended from David came the Messiah (Christ), the ultimate Son of God. Because Jesus (Yeshua‘) accepted the title, it became part of the accusation at His trial and led to His death. Paul says that the resurrection of Jesus proved Him to be the Son of God (Rom. 1:4).
