The Son of God (Rom 1:4)

“God designated

Jesus Christ,

Our Lord,

The Son of God

In power,

According to the Spirit

Of holiness,

By his resurrection

From the dead.”

τοῦ ὁρισθέντος Υἱοῦ Θεοῦ ἐν δυνάμει κατὰ πνεῦμα ἁγιωσύνης ἐξ ἀναστάσεως νεκρῶν, Ἰησοῦ Χριστοῦ τοῦ Κυρίου ἡμῶν,

Paul said that God designated (τοῦ ὁρισθέντος) Jesus Christ (Ἰησοῦ Χριστοῦ), our Lord (τοῦ Κυρίου ἡμῶν), the Son of God (Υἱοῦ Θεοῦ) in power (ἐν δυνάμει) according to the Spirit (κατὰ πνεῦμα) of holiness (ἁγιωσύνης) by his resurrection from the dead (ἐξ ἀναστάσεως νεκρῶν).  Paul clearly stated that Jesus Christ, our Lord, was designated as the Son of God with the power of the Holy Spirit by his resurrection from the dead.  Jesus Christ and the Son of God were equal and the same.  The proof of this was his resurrection from the dead with the power of the Holy Spirit.  Right from the beginning, this is a Trinitarian statement about God the Father, with his Son, and the Holy Spirit.  Their unified action together brought about the resurrection of Jesus Christ.  Jesus is not merely from Nazareth, but the Christ, the anointed one, the Messiah.  Yahweh’s only Son has risen from the dead with the power of the Holy Spirit.  Do you believe in the resurrection of Jesus Christ of Nazareth?
