Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Divine filiation is a Christian concept of becoming a "child of God." The concept implicates a share in the life and role of Jesus Christ. Divine filiation refers to the relationship between Jesus and God, specifically as the second person of the Trinity, "God the Son." The doctrine of the Trinity identifies Jesus of Nazareth as God. Divine filiation implies divinization: "For the Son of God became man so that we might become God," "sharers in the divine nature" (2 Peter 1:4), other "Christs." Divine filiation is the centerpiece of the Gospel, the Good News: it is the reason why man was saved. And is also the purpose behind baptism According to John Paul II, divine filiation is "the deepest mystery of the Christian vocation" and "the culminating point of the mystery of our Christian life...we share in salvation, which is not only the deliverance from evil, but is first of all the fullness of good: of the supreme good of the sonship of God."
