    What are the differences between the terms son of God and son of man?

    The speaker in the video below gives a good answer for this, but unfortunately appears to also support the Trinity Doctrine. Why is it that Trinitarians put ‘son of God’ and ‘God’ in same sentence? Why do Christians teach the Trinity when it only offends Muslims and others and never converts them? In scripture it is clear that we are told to spread the teachings of Jesus and he never said he was God. He claimed to be the son of God, the messiah, and we know he is the Lord. If Muslims are offended that we say Jesus is the son of God, then let them be offended. If they are offended because we say that Jesus is God, then that is a shame to us because we lay a stumbling block for them. If you believe and follow Jesus Christ, then keep it real. What is required of us to believe and teach when it comes to who Jesus is? The three scriptures below give us that answer.

    Matthew 16:13-16
    13 When Jesus came to the region of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, “Who do people say the Son of Man is?”
    14 They replied, “Some say John the Baptist; others say Elijah; and still others, Jeremiah or one of the prophets.”
    15 “But what about you?” he asked. “Who do you say I am?”
    16 Simon Peter answered, “You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God.”

    Philippians 2:10-11
    10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
    11 and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

    Acts 2:36
    “Therefore let all Israel be assured of this: God has made this Jesus, whom you crucified, both Lord and Messiah.”

    Main Problem of a Muslim solved by Ex Muslim

    I watched the video and have my doubts as to whether the muslim’s main problem was solved by the ex-muslim but the explanation is interesting. And the term “son of God” as it’s applied to Jesus in the NT does invoke divinity in some form.Even if Jesus didn’t become the son of God until he was resurrected and ascended that still puts him in a divine state at God’s right hand in heaven and if we are to bow and worship him then that’s more than just honor to an earthly king. And the quote from Paul that every knee should bow and confess is worded from Isaiah in which it’s claimed for Jehovah only.

    And in Mark’s version of Peter’s confession he only says”thou art the Christ”-which Muslims believe about Jesus,but Matthew adds “son of the living God”. If we are all by nature or by faith sons of the living God then why is this any special title? And Jesus even tells them not to tell anybody until after the resurrection so it’s doubtful if he ever made public claims about it.

    So was Jesus only claiming to be the”son of man”,but this had a supernatural connotation, but doesn’t necessarily mean son of God too?

    It’s understandable that when we say Jesus is the son of God,Muslims automatically assume we are saying he’s therefore God too since that is what Mohamed spoke against and what most Christians believe.And apparently some Muslims are still converted anyway.

    @AndrewAD

    I agree that the answer didn’t satisfy, but more likely stumped him momentarily. The muslim’s problem with the logic of the Trinity or lack thereof still stands though.

    So as the Son of God and Son of Man are you also God?
