Chapter Summary

This chapter provides an overview on related texts as subsequent directory cites. In these texts, "son of God" is compared with Israel. Fatherhood of God is also always considered collectively up to the Hellenistic period. A strong individualistic conception comes in the Hellenistic period to break through. Now it is especially the Pious, who consider himself to be the Son of God and in his father's favor that it is God-given personal privilege. The tendency to speak of God as Father increases at the beginning of the Christian era. Jesus is drawing a clear line between himself and his disciples because he never arises in this regard on one and the same level with them. The context of Jesus' preaching must be noted that Jesus always speaks to God as "Father" in prayer; but we have a quotation from Scripture. The original text of the chapter is in German.

Keywords: Christian era; Hellenistic period; Jesus; son of God
