1:11 You are my beloved Son. The mystery of the person of Jesus finds expression in the divine declaration. He, the Second Person of the Godhead, is at the same time the representative believer and the one true and faithful “son” of Israel (Ex. 4:23), who pleases the Father, and whom the Father acknowledges as Son in both a personal and an official sense (Ps. 2:7; Is. 42:1). See note on v. 1.
