Subject: child of God
Here a a few biblical references:
"...When we cry 'Abba! Father!' it is the Spirit himself bearing witness with
our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, heirs..."
I John 3:1
"See what love the Father has given us, that we should be called children of
God; and so we are."
But contrary to these New Testament uses, my grandmother (a Norwegian Lutheran)
used to use the phrase "God's children" to mean "Jews" or "Isrealites."
