    Hi Kevin; Jesus is called the Son of God because He was divinely implanted in the womb of the virgin, when the Power of the Highest overshadowed her. Jesus is also called the Son of man because He came in the flesh. And His name shall be called, Wonderful, Counselor, the Mighty God, the Everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace; King of Kings and Lord of Lords, and ther Judge of all the earth.

    2 CORINTHIANS 3:6 who also hath made us able ministers of the new testament not of the letter but of the spirit for the letter killeth but the spirit giveth life --3:7--but if the ministration of death written and engraven in stones was glorious so that the children of Israel could not stedfastly behold the face of moses for the glory of his countenance which glory was to be done away
  • Steve morrow
    2CORINTHIANS 3:8 how shall not the ministration of the spirit be rather glorious-3:9-for if the ministration of condemnation be glory much more does the ministration of righteousness exceed in glory-3:10-for even that which was made glorious had no glory in this respect by reason of the glory that excelleth-3:11-for if that which is done away was glorious much more that which remaineth is glorious
  • Steve morrow
    HEBREWS 7:11 if therefore perfection were by a levitical priesthood for under it the people received the law what further need was there that another priest should rise after the order of melchisedec and not be called after the order of aaron --7:12--for the priesthood being changed there is made of necessity a change also of the law
