1644. Regarding the Station of Jesus - All Prophets can be Regarded as Sons of God for they All Reflect His Light
"As regards to your questions concerning the station of Jesus Christ, and His return as explained in the Gospel. It is true that Jesus referred to Himself as the Son of God, but this, as explained by Baha'u'llah in the Iqan (Kitab-i-Iqan, or Book of Certitute), does not indicate any Physical relationship whatever. Its meaning is entirely spiritual and points to the close relationship existing between Him and the Almighty God. Nor does it necessarily indicate any inherent superiority in the station of Jesus over other Prophets and Messengers. As far as their spiritual nature is concerned all Prophets can be regarded as Sons of God, as they all reflect His light, though not in an equal measure, and this difference in reflection is due to the conditions and circumstances under which they appear."
(From a letter written on behalf of the Guardian to an individual believer, November 29, 1937), (Lights of Guidance, p. 491)
I hope this helps, and good luck with your essay.
