Who Is G-d's Firstborn Son?

One of the parts of the Exodus/Passover story that is often missed is the identification of G-d's firstborn son. Now, Messianics will generally tell you that Jesus is G-d's firstborn son. But G-d says something quite different in the Bible. In Exodus 4:22-23, G-d orders Moses to say"And you will say to Pharaoh: Thus says the L-RD: Israel is My son, My first-born. And I have said to you: Let My son go, that he may serve Me; and you have refused to let him go. Behold, I will slay your son, you first-born.:"

So, we learn in story of Passover that the true firstborn son of G-d is not Jesus, but the Jewish people.
