Did Jesus Claim to Be the Son of God?

In Did Jesus Claim to be God, I said that I would post some of the verses I collected in putting that post together. This post will have the verses which Jesus Claims to be God’s Son. There will be other post with verses related to “I Am” where Jesus  claims a) to be the God, b) to be greater than the angels,  c) actions associated with God, and d) places others call Him God and were not corrected.
