How did the earliest Christians come to see Jesus as a divine and preexistent being alongside God? Aquila Lee proposes that the root of preexistent Son Christology is to be found in early Christian exegesis of the two messianic pslams (the catalyst) in the light of Jesus' self-consciousness of divine sonship and divine mission (the foundation).
