The following scriptures are used by the apostle John to describe the relationship between God and Jesus:  

Jesus is called the “only begotten Son” of God in John 1:18, John 3:16, 18, and 1 John 4:9. The most accurate, word-for-word translations of the Bible translate Strong’s word G3439, μονογενής or monogenēs, as “only begotten Son.” […]
