WHO CONFESSED JESUS TO BE THE SON OF GOD?
NEBUCHADNEZZAR CONFESSED: "I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire, and they have no hurt; and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God." Daniel 3:25. "Jesus stood by their side in the fiery furnace, and the glory of his presence convinced the proud king of Babylon that it could be no other than the Son of God." (Ellen White, YI April 26, 1904, par. 9)
TWO POSSESSED WITH DEVILS CONFESSED: "... they cried out, saying, What have we to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of God? art thou come hither to torment us before the time?" Matthew 8:29
HIS DISCIPLES CONFESSED: "Then they that were in the ship came and worshipped him, saying, Of a truth thou art the Son of God." Matthew 14:33
JESUS CONFESSED: "... for he said, I am the Son of God." Matthew 27:43
GOD THE FATHER CONFESSED: "... This is my beloved Son: hear him" Mark 9:7
THE CENTURION CONFESSED: "... Truly this was the Son of God." Matthew 27:54; Mark 15:39
MARK CONFESSED: "The beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God;" Mark 1:1
PETER CONFESSED: "And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God. 17 And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven. 18 And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it." (Matthew 16:16-18). In other words, it seems that Jesus said that the gates of hell shall not prevail against the knowledge of Jesus being the Son of the living God. Upon this "rock" Jesus built His church. For what could be more foundational than the identity of Father God and His beloved Son, Jesus Christ?

1John 5:5 "Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God? 10 He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son. 12 He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life. 13 These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God. 20 And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true(Christ's Father), and we are in him that is true(Christ's Father), even in his Son Jesus Christ. This(Christ's Father) is the true God, and eternal life." 1 John 5:5,10,12,13,20 (parenthetical clarity added by Sid)

Verily, verily, I say unto you, The hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and they that hear shall live. -Jesus (John 5:25)
