The “child abuse” term seems to ignore the mystery inherrant in any metaphor (Father, Son, etc.) used much more to teach humans than they do to accurately reveal a congruent reality. Even the word “son” indicates to us a hierarchy and even a beginning.

It is impossible to ignore the Passover Lamb aspects of the cross and the overt implications of Is. 53.
