Jesus is one of many Sons of God  
Today, many Christians believe Jesus is the Son of God
Often the Bible used terms such as "Son" and "God" to describe normal human beings, Angels, prophets and even Satan. The word "Son" cannot be taken literally. It was figuarative language which showed a common sense of purpose and was a sign of respect, love and honour.

Jesus is the Son, not son
It is often claimed the Bible text "Son of God" appears with a capital 'S' in reference to Jesus, and a small 's' for other sons. In response, Jesus never spoke English, nor were the Gospels written in English. Therefore, the capital 'S' was inserted into the English translation at a later date.

Below are a few Bible verses which apply the term "Son of God" to others, besides Jesus Christ.

1Jesus Christ
No man hath seen God at any time, the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him
John 1:18

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life
John 3:16

2Jacob (Israel)
Jacob is God's son and firstborn

And thou shalt say unto Pharaoh, Thus saith the Lord, Israel is my Son, even my Firstborn:
Exodus 4:22

2Samuel 7:13-14

Ephraim is God's firstborn

They shall come with weeping, and with supplications will I lead them: I will cause them to walk by the rivers of waters in a straight way, wherein they shall not stumble: for I am a Father to Israel, and Ephraim is my Firstborn

1John 3:1-2

This is how we know who the children of God are and who the children of the devil are: Anyone who does not do what is right is not God's child, nor is anyone who does not love their brother and sister

There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the Sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.
Genesis 6:2-4
