My thoughts are:
If ANASTHSAS doesn't mean raised from the dead then Ps. 2:7 is saying
that Jesus became the Son of God by being born in the flesh. And if
ANASTHSAS does mean raised from the dead then Jesus would have
been begotten from the dead. My cousin and many others
believe the first way. That is, that Christ became the Son of God by
being born in the flesh.
Just a few thoughts.
