  1. a son

    1. rarely used for the young of animals

    2. generally used of the offspring of men

    3. in a restricted sense, the male offspring (one born by a father and of a mother)

    4. in a wider sense, a descendant, one of the posterity of any one,

      1. the children of Israel

      2. sons of Abraham

    5. used to describe one who depends on another or is his follower

      1. a pupil

  2. son of man

    1. term describing man, carrying the connotation of weakness and mortality

    2. son of man, symbolically denotes the fifth kingdom in Daniel 7:13 and by this term its humanity is indicated in contrast with the barbarity and ferocity of the four preceding kingdoms (the Babylonian, the Median and the Persian, the Macedonian, and the Roman) typified by the four beasts. In the book of Enoch (2nd Century) it is used of Christ.

    3. used by Christ himself, doubtless in order that he might intimate his Messiahship and also that he might designate himself as the head of the human family, the man, the one who both furnished the pattern of the perfect man and acted on behalf of all mankind. Christ seems to have preferred this to the other Messianic titles, because by its lowliness it was least suited to foster the expectation of an earthly Messiah in royal splendour.

  3. son of God

    1. used to describe Adam (Lk. 3:38)

    2. used to describe those who are born again (Lk. 20:36) and of angels and of Jesus Christ

    3. of those whom God esteems as sons, whom he loves, protects and benefits above others

      1. in the OT used of the Jews

      2. in the NT of Christians

      3. those whose character God, as a loving father, shapes by chastisements (Heb. 12:5-8)

    4. those who revere God as their father, the pious worshippers of God, those who in character and life resemble God, those who are governed by the Spirit of God, repose the same calm and joyful trust in God which children do in their parents (Rom. 8:14, Gal. 3:26), and hereafter in the blessedness and glory of the life eternal will openly wear this dignity of the sons of God. Term used preeminently of Jesus Christ, as enjoying the supreme love of God, united to him in affectionate intimacy, privy to his saving councils, obedient to the Father's will in all his acts

STRONGS G5207:
υἱός, υἱοῦ, , from Homer down, the Sept. for בֵּן and Chaldean בַּר, a son (male offspring);
1. properly,
a. rarely of the young of animals: Matthew 21:5 (Psalm 28:1 (Ps. 29:1); Sir. 38:25); generally of the offspring of men, and in the restricted sense, male issue (one begotten by a father and born of a mother): Matthew 10:37; Luke 1:13; (Luke 14:5 L T Tr WH); Acts 7:29; Galatians 4:22, etc.; υἱός τίνος, Matthew 7:9; Mark 9:17; Luke 3:2; John 1:42(John 1:43), and very often, as in Greek writings, υἱός is often to be supplied by the reader (Winer's Grammar, § 30, 3, p. 593 (551)): as τόν τοῦ Ζεβεδαίου, Matthew 4:21; Mark 1:19. plural υἱοί τίνος, Matthew 20:20; Luke 5:10; John 4:12; Acts 2:17; Hebrews 11:21, etc. with the addition of an adjective, as πρωτότοκος, Matthew 1:25 (R G); Luke 2:7; μονογενής, Luke 7:12. οἱ υἱοί, genuine sons, are distinguished from οἱ νόθοι in Hebrews 12:8. equivalent to τέκνον with ἄρσην added, a man child (Buttmann, 80 (70)), Revelation 12:5; of one (actually or to be) regarded as a son, although properly not one, John 19:26; Acts 7:21; Hebrews 11:24; in kindly address, Hebrews 12:5 from Proverbs 3:11 (see τέκνον, a.β.).
b. in a wider sense (like θυγάτηρ, τέκνον), a descendant, one of the posterity of anyone: τίνος, Matthew 1:20; υἱός Δαυίδ, of the Messiah, Matthew 22:42, 45; Mark 12:35, 37; Luke 20:41, 44; of Jesus the Messiah, Matthew 9:27; Matthew 12:23; Matthew 15:22; Matthew 20:30; Matthew 21:9, 15; Mark 10:47; Luke 18:38f plural υἱοί τίνος, Matthew 23:31; Hebrews 7:5; υἱοί Ἰσραήλ, Israelites (the children of Israel), Matthew 27:9; Acts 9:15; Acts 10:36; 2 Corinthians 3:7, 13; Hebrews 11:21; Revelation 2:14; Revelation 7:4; Revelation 21:12 (see Ἰσραήλ); υἱοί Ἀβραάμ, sons of Abraham, is tropically applied to those who by their faith in Christ are akin to Abraham, Galatians 3:7.
2. tropically and according to the Hebrew mode of speech (Winer's Grammar, 33 (32)), υἱός with the genitive of a person is used of one who depends on another or is his follower: οἱ υἱοί of teachers, equivalent to pupils (see τέκνον, b. β. (cf. Irenaeus haer. 4, 41, 2 qui enim ab aliquo edoctus est, verbo filius docentis dicitur, et ille eius pater)), Matthew 12:27; Luke 11:19; τοῦ πονηροῦ, who in thought and action are prompted by the evil one and obey him, Matthew 13:38; υἱός διαβόλου, Acts 13:10; with the genitive of a thing, one who is connected with or belongs to a thing by any kind of close relationship (Winers Grammar, § 34, 3 N. 2; Buttmann, § 132, 10): υἱοί τοῦ νυμφῶνος (see νυμφών), Matthew 9:15; Mark 2:19; Luke 5:34 (τῆς ἄκρας, the garrison of the citadel, 1 Macc. 4:2; in Ossian 'a son of the hill' i. e. 'a hunter', 'a son of the sea' i. e. 'a sailor'; cf. Jen. Lit. Zeit. for 1836 No. 58, p. 462f); τοῦ αἰῶνος τούτου, those whose character belongs to this age (is 'worldly'), Luke 16:8; Luke 20:34; τῆς ἀπειθείας, i. e. ἀπειθεῖς, Ephesians 2:2; Ephesians 5:6; Colossians 3:6 (here T Tr WH omit; L brackets the clause) (ἀνομίας, Psalm 88:23 (Ps. 89:23); τῆς ὑπερηφανίας, 1 Macc. 2:47); βροντῆς, who resemble thunder, thundering (see Βοανεργές), Mark 3:17; τοῦ φωτός, instructed in evangelical truth and devotedly obedient to it, Luke 16:8; John 12:36; with καί τῆς ἡμέρας added, 1 Thessalonians 5:5; τῆς ἀναστάσεως, sharers in the resurrection, Luke 20:36; παρακλήσεως, Acts 4:36; one to whom anything belongs: as υἱοί τῶν προφητῶν καί τῆς διαθήκης, those to whom the prophetic and covenant promises belong, Acts 3:25; for whom a thing is destined, as υἱοί τῆς βασιλείας, Matthew 8:12; Matthew 13:38; τῆς ἀπωλείας, John 17:12; 2 Thessalonians 2:3; one who is worthy of a thing, as γηννης, Matthew 23:15; εἰρήνης, Luke 10:6 (θανάτου, 1 Samuel 20:31; 2 Samuel 12:5; הַכּות בִּן, the Sept. ἄξιος πληγῶν, Deuteronomy 25:2). (Synonym: see τέκνον.)
