The first proof is from Psalm 2:7 —“You are My Son, Today I have begotten You,” is from Psalm 2:7. The Father quoted this statement at Jesus’ baptism and transfiguration.
- and a voice came out of the heavens: You are My beloved Son, in You I am well-pleased. - Mark 1:11
- Then a cloud formed, overshadowing them, and a voice came out of the cloud, This is My beloved Son, listen to Him! - Mark 9:7
- Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the Lord, and Satan also came among them. - Job 1:6
- Again there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the Lord, and Satan also came among them to present himself before the Lord. - Job 2:1
- When the morning stars sang together And all the sons of God shouted for joy? - Job 38:7
The term begotten (gennáō) should not be confused with only begotten (monogenḗs). Only-begotten (monogenḗs) means to be unique and without equal. It has nothing to do with birth. The term begotten (gennáō) means to bring forth. The idea of the phrase, “Today, I have begotten you,” refers to the day, which God brought forth the Messiah and sat Him at His right hand. That was the day that God brought forth the Son, as the Davidic heir, who will reign over the whole earth.
- Ask of Me, and I will surely give the nations as Your inheritance, And the very ends of the earth as Your possession. - Psalm 2:8
