Psalm 2 Overview

Ps. 2.7 is one of the most important verses in all scripture. This overview explains the covenantal nature of the decree and the resultant relationship. A covenant establishes a relationship.

Key fulfillment of Psalm 2.7 is identified by Paul in Rom. 1.4: and who through the Spirit of holiness was appointed the Son of God in power by his resurrection from the dead: Jesus Christ our Lord (NIV). Paul claimed the same thing earlier on his first missionary journey in the Synagogue at Pisidian Antioch: “We tell you the good news: What God promised our ancestors he has fulfilled for us, their children, by raising up Jesus. As it is written in the second Psalm: “ ‘You are my son; today I have become your father ‘ “(Acts 13.32-33 NIV).

The writer of Hebrews compares the different glories of God’s workings in history showing the Son is the clearest revelation and superior to angels:

For to which of the angels did God ever say, “You are my Son; today I have become your Father” Or again, “I will be his Father, and he will be my Son” And again, when God brings his firstborn into the world, he says, “Let all God’s angels worship him.” (Heb. 1.5-6 NIV).

In the same way, Christ did not take on himself the glory of becoming a high priest. But God said to him, “You are my Son; today I have become your Father.” And he says in another place, “You are a priest forever, in the order of Melchizedek.” (Heb. 5.5-6 NIV).

Jesus sacrificed His earthly life and conquered death for us. Jesus is the only valid King saving His people to the uttermost demonstrating His love and power.
