Playing Versions of New Testament

One of the tactics of the anti-Islam Evangelists and “Websiters” is to pick up the verse that advances their purpose from one Version of the New Testament. And they totally ignore the same verse from other Versions that contradicts their point. They really show their Mastery in playing the game of half the truth.

Muslims say that nowhere in the Bible did Jesus say that he is the son of God. This was the answer of half the truth:
Ye, he did, read: Luke 22:70, NKJV New King James Version
They all asked, "Are you then the Son of God?" He replied, "You are right in saying I am."
But they conveniently ignore the same verse in other versions (I wonder why?):
KJV King James Version
Then said they all, Art thou then the Son of God? And he said unto them, “Ye say that I am.”
RSV Revised Standard Version
And they all said, "Are you the Son of God, then?" And he said to them, "You say that I am."
NRSV New Revised Standard Version
All of them asked, "Are you, then, the Son of God?" He said to them, "You say that I am."
American Standard Version
And they all said, Art thou then the Son of God? And he said unto them, Ye say that I am.
So where in the Bible did Jesus say bluntly that he is The Son of God or even the son of god without the interpretations of half the truth? Some of those half the truth claim that they know better than the authors of RSV, NRSV, American Standard Version, and the rest of versions, perhaps because they know Greek. But, who can say that Jesus spoke Greek? He spoke the Aramaic language, and there is no capital S or small s, for son, in this language.
