dc.description.abstract In this paper, I explore the history and theological development of the title “son of God.” The purpose is to ascertain the significance of the title and its role in the Second Temple Period of Judaism. Emphasis is placed on the influence of Hellenistic thought and the separation of Jewish and Greco-Roman followers of Jesus. Doing this allows a greater understanding of how the title “son of God” is used in the writings of the New Testament as well as its place in the Christian religion today.
