What does it mean that Jesus was the “only begotten” Son of God? That makes it sound like there was a time when He did not exist. Question and Answer If God is the Eternal Father—and the Bible says He is—it means that by definition the Son of the eternal Father must also be eternal.

Muslims admit that Jesus was a great prophet, but they say Muhammed, coming later, was greater. Which of the two was the greater? Question and Answer You ask the wrong question.
