(Job 1:6) Who are the sons of God?

CLAIM: This passage refers to the “sons of God.” Who are they?

RESPONSE: These are, no doubt, angels. Several other passages in the Bible refer to the sons of God as angels. Job 38:7 states, “When the morning stars sang together and all the sons of God shouted for joy?” (cf. Ps. 29:1; 89:6) This also fits with the context, where Satan (a fallen angel) appears before God.
