The Muslims keep telling that God has no Son, that Jesus is only human. The teaching about the Father and the Son is derived from the books in Tanakh which is ahead of Jesus thousands to hundreds of years. Tanakh foretells the arrival of the Son on Earth who is God himself. This shows that the worship of the Son was not fabricated later after Jesus’ ascension as alleged by the Muslims and some christian sects. Below are numerous biblical verses proving the existence of the Father and His Son (Jesus).
Quoted from Tanakh/Old Testament
