Abstract This article discusses the quotation of Ps 2,7 in Heb 1,5 with a focus on the phrase, 'today I have begotten you'. Patristic interpreters found in this expression a description of the Father’s eternal begetting of the Son. Modern scholars have generally rejected this interpretation and instead suggested that the word 'today' may refer to Jesus’ resurrection, to his ascension, or to the eschatological 'now'. This article takes a fresh look at the various suggestions and argues that the reference to the eternal generation of the Son is the one that is most compatible with the argument in the epistle.
