Thank you for replying to my question concerning Luke 3. George Somsel said:
A -----> B -------> C ------> D
What I understand you to be saying:
A -----> B
A -----> C
A -----> D
In either case A ends up being a lineal descendant of D."
While it is true that A ends up with the same status; is that also
necessarily true of B, C and D? This question has arisen over a discussion
of the phrase "son of God", and to whom it applies. Coming to Luke 3, this
"son of God" is applied to Adam in most translations. But the contention is
If one follows the progression "A -----> B -------> C ------> D" then the
conclusion becomes "Seth, the son of Adam; Adam, the son of God". If one
follows the progression "A -----> B; A -----> C; A -----> D" then the
conclusion becomes "Jesus, the son of Adam; Jesus, the son of God".
What is being discussed is, to whom does the phrase "the son of God" refer;
and if the language and grammar itself would provide any disambiguity (if
such actually exists).
Thank you for your time,
