Messianic Prophecies: Son of God
Psalm 2:7 - "I will declare the decree: the LORD has said to Me, `You are My Son, today I have begotten You.

Jesus was the Son of God Matt 3:17 And suddenly a voice came from heaven, saying, "This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased." Luke 9:35 - And there came a voice out of the cloud, saying, This is my beloved Son: hear him. Key Points: - Many of the Psalms have references to Christ, and clearly speak of Jesus. - David was speaking by the Holy Spirit when he said this. - The prophecy was declared as God's decree. - "You are My Son" refers to the Messiah as the Son of God. - This phrase is applied to Jesus at his baptism (Mark 1:11) - In the Hebrew the word "Son" was a common designation for the Messiah. - It is very clear that in Jewish circles Messiah would be referred to as the Son of God. - "today I have begotten you" speaks of His resurrection and preeminence. - The term, begotten, is part of an Oriental formula for adoption used in the Code of Hammurabi. - Proverbs 30:4 reinforces the concept that the "Son" would have a name. "Ascending into heaven" and descending was also referred to in the New Testament in relation to Jesus. - At the Transfiguration God the Father calls Jesus the Son of God... "This is My Son, Hear ye Him."
