Oh before I forget, when using the greek lettering for words, could you please translate in english like they do in their meanings? Thanks Again!
The basic Greek word for "only-begotten" used for Jesus and Isaac is mo·no·ge·nes´, from mo´nos, meaning "only," and gi´no·mai, a root word meaning "to generate," "to become (come into being)," Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance.
mo·no·ge·nes´ is defined as: "Only born, only begotten, i.e. an only child."—A Greek and English Lexicon of the New Testament, by E. Robinson.
The Theological Dictionary of the New Testament, edited by Gerhard Kittel, "[Mo·no·ge·nes´] means ‘of sole descent,’ i.e., without brothers or sisters." John 1:18; 3:16, 18; and 1 John 4:9, "the relation of Jesus is not just compared to that of an only child to its father. It is the relation of the only-begotten to the Father." ?
