Shalom , What is the meaning when the jew say that and according to this can we say that Moses is the son of God as he is the biggest teacher " while not meaning what the Christians said " ?

I hope I did not get the information wrong .

The sentence " children(or sons) of God " is used in many places in the bible . https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Gen+6%3A2&version=ESV

My question is can we say someone is the son of God as an honour to him for example Moses ?

EDIT : so accroding to a brother here "When using the phrase "children of Gcd", the Jews mean they are the Chosen People; with more responsibilities that other people, and hence a closer relationship with The Chooser than other people have."

The question :Is it possible to call someone the son of God if we knew that he was a great believer -because all jews are God Chosen can we call one specific by that- ?

Your question is not 100% clear.

Nowhere is Moses referred to as the son of Gcd. Moses was a regular human being and his genealogy is clearly recorded (Exodus 6:20 for example).

Your single reference is in the pre-flood area - about 2,000 years before Moses was born.

In Judaism that verse is translated as "the children of the judges", as Elohim refers to judges, in other places. (Rashi, Ramban and Midrash Rabba)

For example, Exodus 22:27, is classically translated as "You shall not revile the judges, nor curse a ruler of your people."

When using the phrase "children of Gcd", the Jews mean they are the Chosen People; with more responsibilities that other people, and hence a closer relationship with The Chooser than other people have.
