In Hebrews 1:5 the writer quotes from Psalm 2 and II Sam. 7 in order to prove that at no time did God ever refer to any of the angels as His Son. This I understood well enough so I always just moved on in the text. But have you ever given much thought to the quotation of Psalm 2:7? What I mean is, have you ever thought, "Hmmmm....what day was the "today" as quoted by David who was quoting God?" What day was it that God said to Jesus, "You are My Son, today I have begotten you"?
If you'll turn to Acts 13 you'll find that Paul confirms the right answer. When Paul stood up in the synagogue in Antioch of Pisidia on the Sabbath to preach to the people, he began with a little history lesson and quickly fast forwards to the Jews' recent rejection of the Messiah. The point being, though you killed Him, God has raised Him. And in this God fulfilled Psalm 2:7—"God has fulfilled this for us their children, in that He raised up Jesus. As it is written in the second Psalm: 'You are My Son, today I have begotten You.'" (Acts 13:33)
