1 John 4:9 - This is how the love of God was revealed in us: because the
only begotten Son of God was sent into the world that we may live through

Part 2 ~ The Only Begotten Son of God

The word translated as "only begotten" ('monogenes'/μονογενὴς) is found
nine times in the New Testament (Luke 7:12, 8:42, 9:38; and John 1:14, 18,
3:16, 18; also Hebrews 11:17; 1 John 4:9). However, only John applies it
specifically to Jesus. It means the one and only Son of God. This is how
God was made flesh, and it was only by the body and blood of God being made
flesh that salvation could be supplied to anyone who wanted to escape from
the spiritual prison of sin and death. Although the Bible speaks of many
sons of God in both the Old and New Testaments, there is only One Who was
the only begotten of God and was at the same time eternally with God and
was God. Through His birth, we are now also able to be begotten of God.
