Mark 1:1

The beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God;
Note 5 at Mark 1:1: The Scriptures clearly refer to Jesus as the Son of God ninety-five times. There are at least twenty-five other references to the Son where “Son of God” is implied. Jesus referred to Himself as the Son of God (John 10:36). The Father called Jesus His Son (Psalms 2:7 with Acts 13:33; Matthew 3:17, 17:5; and Luke 9:35). The terms “Christ” and “Son of God” were used interchangeably (John 6:69, 20:31; and Acts 9:20; see note 2 at Matthew 16:16). The scribes and Pharisees always interpreted Jesus referring to God as His “Father” or references to Jesus as the “Son of God” as blasphemy (Matthew 26:63-66 and Mark 14:61-64). John 10:24-39 reveals the Jews’ belief that Jesus referring to Himself as God’s son was making Himself God.
