The expression ""Son of God", is an analogical term. It indicates origin, a close association, or identification. In Christian theology it describes the relationship of two persons of the triune God. It expresses an intimate relationship between two persons: God the Father, and God the Son - Jesus the Messiah. We see that in Christ, the invisible God is revealed. Jesus was with the Father before the world began. Christ, as God the Son, is the Creator of all things. God in all His fullness, dwelt in Christ, reconciling the world. We see that Christ, as the Son of God - God's representation, is God manifest and revealed to the world. Angels, prophets, and things can reveal to us something about God. But God alone can reveal God. It takes God to reveal Himself to mankind. What better way for the eternal revealer to be revealed to mankind on earth than by clothing His self-expression in human form?
Jesus is the Son of God and also is God. He is part of the Trinity: The Father (God) The Son (Jesus) and The Holy Spirit. They actually are all the same person. Jesus was sent down into the world by God to save us from our sins by dying on the Cross. On the third day, He rose again. So no one knows Jesus's DNA because there was no body left behind when He rose to Heaven. It's kind of confusing...
I always understood it to be like three prongs of one being. The father, the son, and the holy spirit. All of them being part of one another as well as belonging to each other as in familial relation. It's an interesting question as so many things in the gospel are figurative and are meant to be interpreted, but the bible does say that Jesus Christ was God's only begotten son.
Opinions vary, different church's teach the trinity differently. Personally I believe him to be the actual Son of God. This is the source of a lot of heated debate, often with one set calling the other set non-Christian and worse, wars have been fought over it. I never did understand why people get so heated about it. We will all find out for certain one day. I can't believe anyone's salvation depends on guessing right.
A figure of speech. God does not go around sleeping with women. Jesus was a mortal man, just like anyone else. Suggesting God has children is blasphemy. God has no body, shape, or form. God has no size, for the heavens and the heavens' heavens will not contain him. Jesus called God 'Father'. Any Jew does, "our Father who are in heaven" is a very common beginning for Jewish prayers. In a figurative sense Jesus was God's child, just like any other one.
Spiritual Matters Are Foreign To Earthly Ones. God's DNA Supernaturally Fathered Savior of the World. After Finishing His Assignment On Earth, Jesus Son of God R u l e s Reigns. Forev- e r. ---------------------------------- Scripture Quote ---------------------------------- Then the angel said to her, The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you [like a shining cloud]; and so the holy (pure, sinless) Thing (Offspring) which shall be born of you will be called the Son of God. --------------------------------------- For with God nothing is ever impossible and no word from God shall be without power or impossible of fulfillment. Then Mary said, Behold, I am the handmaiden of the Lord; let it be done to me according to what you have said. And the angel left her. (Luke 1:35, 37, 38 AMP)

Jesus was god's son only in the sense, that all human are god's children - IF there is a god. Hence, Jesus makes no special case, whatsoever. Even in the genealogies of Jesus given in the two gospels of Matthew and Luke, Jesus' lineage traces back to King David, not to God. However, biologically Jesus was the son of a Roman soldier named Pandira.
