The Deity of Christ in Hebrews Chapter 1

 

                "Son" is used to mean not only "descendant" or "offspring" but "of the order of" or "having the qualities and        attributes of."  E.g., "Sons of Belial" (Judg. 19.22), "sons of thunder" (Mk. 3.17), "son of consolation" (Acts 4.36), and "son of perdition" (Jn. 17.12).  "Son of Man" affirms humanity instead of denying it (Ps. 8.4-6 and Ezek. 1.3,6,8).  Thus the title "Son of God" does not deny Christ's Deity any more than the title "Son of Man" denies his humanity.
