The blessing of Abraham included fatherhood. What was more central to Abraham’s whole experience with God than his becoming a father against all human odds?
Jesus is undoubtedly a son of Abraham. In fact, He is the ultimate and most important son of Abraham. How, therefore, could He be denied the blessing of being a father?
We should also add that the blessing of Abraham was not merely to be a father (great as that blessing is) but was also to be a “father of many nations.” That’s what the name change from Abram (meaning “exalted father”) to Abraham (meaning “father of many”) was all about (See Genesis 17:1-6).
If Jesus was not the son of Abraham He could not legitimately be the Messiah. Since He is obviously the son of Abraham and the only legitimate Messiah, why then tolerate a doctrine (i.e. the Trinity) which forever deprives Him of the Abrahamic blessing of being called “Father”?
