Father and Son and sons

The Father is our Father. The Son is not our Father, but we share in his sonship and in his inheritance and in his Spirit and in his worship and obedience and love and even in his lordship over creation (Heb. 2:8-9). He is our Priest and our Sacrifice, our Leader and our Teacher. It is in such terms — in terms of his peculiar role in redemption and in terms of our peculiar relationship with him — that the Son’s unique personality is defined for Christian faith and experience (Macleod, The Person of Christ, 138).
