Son of God is a figure of speech which many other Prophets were labeled as for example; in the King James Version of the Bible(Psalms 2:7) David is the begotten Son of God.Many others in the Bible are called God's son;Jacob God's firstborn son (Exodus 4:22)Solomon is God's son (2 Samuel 7:13-14)Ephraim is God's firstborn son (Jeremiah 31:9)Adam is the son of God (Luke 3:38)Other Prophets Preformed similar Miracles as Jesus ;Ezekiel raised many from the dead (Ezekiel 37:1-9)Joshua stopped the sun and moon for one whole day (Joshua 10:12-13)Elisha raised the dead, resurrected himself, healed a leper, fed a hundred people with twenty barley loaves and a few ears of corn, and healed a blind man: (2 Kings 4:35, 13:21, 5:14, 4:44, and 6:11.)Elijah raised the dead (1 Kings 17:22 and 14.)Other Prophets were filled with the Holy Ghost;Zacharias was filled with the Holy Ghost (Luke 1:67)Elisabeth was filled with the Holy Ghost (Luke 1:41)Peter, filled with the Holy Ghost (Acts 4:8)Paul, filled with the Holy Ghost (Acts 13:9)Many other Prophets were called Lord for example;Abraham (Genesis 18:12)Esau (Genesis 32:4)Joseph (Genesis 44:20)David (1 Samuel 25:24)Jesus taught Salvation comes from Submitting your will to God and Faith as Muslims do .(Matthew 7:21-23) "Not everyone who says to me, 'Lord, Lord,' will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. Many will say to me on that day, 'Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and in your name drive out demons and perform many miracles? Then I will tell them plainly, 'I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!'"
