Son Of God?

I discovered something interesting this evening. I did a simple keyword search for the phrase "Son of God" in the Bible, expecting to find lots of basic verses that spoke of Jesus as being the Son of God. To my surprise, I found a collection of intense challenges, questions, and declarations:

Matthew 26:63
But Jesus remained silent. The high priest said to him, "I charge you under oath by the living God: Tell us if you are the Christ, the Son of God."

Matthew 27:39-40
Those who passed by hurled insults at him, shaking their heads and saying, "You who are going to destroy the temple and build it in three days, save yourself! Come down from the cross, if you are the Son of God!"

Matthew 27:54
When the centurion and those with him who were guarding Jesus saw the earthquake and all that had happened, they were terrified, and exclaimed, "Surely he was the Son of God!"

Mark 3:11
Whenever the evil spirits saw him, they fell down before him and cried out, "You are the Son of God."

John 1:34
"I have seen and I testify that this is the Son of God."

Matthew 16:15
"But what about you?" [Jesus] asked. "Who do you say I am?"
