God’s Love and the Family

When both Old and New Testament writers wanted to describe the love of God for people, they often used family images....

•God as nursing, nurturing mother (Is 49:15; 66:12-13; Hos 11:1-4)

•God as father (Ex 4:22-23; Jer 31:9)

•King as God's son/adoptive son (2 Sam 7:14; Ps 2:7)

•Believers as children/adopted children of God (Mt 5:9; Rom 8:14-16; Gal 4:1-7)

•God as faithful husband (Hos 1-4)

•Christ as "firstborn among many brethren" (Rom 8:29 KJv)
