Heidelberg Catechism Lord's Day 13

~~His Deity
Lord’s Day 13
33. Why is He called God’s “only begotten Son,”
since we also are the children of God?

Because Christ alone is the eternal, natural Son of
God,[1] but we are children of God by adoption,
through grace, for His sake.[2]
[1] Jn 1:1-3, 14, 18, 3:16; Rom 8:32; Heb 1; 1 Jn 4:9; [2]
Jn 1:12; Rom 8:14-17; Gal 4:6; Eph 1:5-6; 1 Jn 3:1

34. Why do you call Him “our Lord?”

Because not with silver or gold, but with His
precious blood,[1] He has redeemed and purchased
us, body and soul,[2] from sin and from all the power
of the devil, to be His own.[3]
