“So the Muslim seeks clarification of the teaching and asks at every step: “How could that be so?” For example, we insist that the term “Son of God” cannot have a literal interpretation. Sonship and divine nature would be necessary attributes of such an actuality, but these are incompatible.
The first describes a recipient of life while the second describes One who received life from no one. These are mutually exclusive requirements then.
To be a son is to be less than divine, and to be divine is to be no one’s son.”
