I would like to
tell you that the phrase ‘son of God’ has been used in the Bible not only
for Jesus (sws) but also for his followers (John, 1:12), the Prophet Adam
(Luke, 3:38) and the angels (Genesis, 6:2,4). It needs to be appreciated
that this phrase alludes to its metaphorical meanings and thus suggests
close relationship with God. We do not object to the usage of this phrase.
What has intellectually been denied by Islam is that Jesus (sws) was
begotten by God. This is utter blasphemy. We must not ascribe to the
Almighty anything of which we have no knowledge or authority whatsoever.
The translation cycle of
the Bible, that you have mentioned, seems quite probable.
