For the purpose of this paper, the attempt will be made to see how some contemporary scholars have addressed how the New Testament writers came to describe and proclaim Jesus as "Son of God." The attempt will also be made to see through the New Testament writers' theological retrojections of this title, to question whether or not Jesus understood himself to be "Son of God" in the same terms. Furthermore, discrepancies between consciousness and knowledge will be discussed- as contemporary scholars have presented them- in terms of Jesus' probable understanding of his divine sonship.
