Philo, leg. ad Gaium § 8)).
c. after Psalm 2:7, it is used of God making Christ his son;
a. formally to show him to be the Messiah (υἱόν τοῦ Θεοῦ), viz. by the resurrection: Acts 13:33.
b. to be the author of the divine nature which he possesses (but compare the commentaries on the passages that follow): Hebrews 1:5; Hebrews 5:5.
