Prophecies of the Messiah – The Son of God

Prophecies of the Messiah – The Son of God

The Hebrew Scriptures
I will declare the decree: The LORD has said to Me, “You are My Son, Today I have begotten You. Ask of Me, and I will give You the nations for Your inheritance, and the ends of the earth for Your possession. You shall break them with a rod of iron; You shall dash them to pieces like a potter’s vessel.” (Psalm 2:7-9)

The New Testament

When He had been baptised, Jesus came up immediately from the water; and behold, the heavens were opened to Him, and He saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting upon Him. And suddenly a voice came from heaven, saying, “This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.” (Matthew 3:16-17)

the High Priest answered and said to Him(Jesus), “I put you under oath by the living God: Tell us if you are the Messiah, the Son of God!” Jesus said to him. “It is as you said…” (Matthew 26:63,64)

Paul, a bondservant of Jesus the Messiah, called to be an apostle, separated to the gospel of God which He promised before through His prophets in the Holy Scriptures, concerning His Son Jesus the Messiah our Lord, who was born of the seed of David according to the flesh, and declared to be the Son of God with power according to the Spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead. (Romans 1:1-4)

Quotations and Comments
“Our rabbis have taught that this concerns the Messiah-King…” (Rabbi Shlomo Yitzhaki [b. 1040 C])

“If it [Psalm 2] be interpreted of the Messiah, the matter is clear.” (Rabbi Abraham Ibn Ezra [b 1092 C])

“Our Rabbis taught, The Holy One, blessed be He, will say to the Messiah, the son of David (May he reveal himself speedily in our days!), “Ask of me anything, and I will give it to thee”, as it is said, I will tell of the decree etc. this day have I begotten thee, ask of me and I will give the nations for thy inheritance.” (Babylonian Talmud, Sukkah 52a)

 

This Psalm is the first reference in the Hebrew Scriptures to Messiah as God’s Son, and it is in connection with Messiah’s role to rule the world on God’s behalf. Clearly there will need to be something unique about such a person, and Psalm 2 teaches that this is a unique nature and unique relationship to the LORD. A son is not the same person as his father but, by definition, he has the same nature. When Yeshua repeatedly spoke of God as his Father he was accused of blasphemy, of making himself God, but the implication of the title Son of God is nothing less than oneness with God, as Yeshua said “I and my Father are one.” (John 10:30)
