Son of Man

From BelieveTheSign

This article is one in a series of studies on Jesus as Son - you are currently on the topic that is in bold:

Every man, with the exception of the first man Adam, is a son of man. In the Old Testament the prophets Daniel and Ezekiel were called "son of man" by the angels. In the New Testament, Jesus calls himself "the Son of man". This does not mean that Jesus was the son of Joseph, but that he was a man, born of a woman, just like every other man.

Adam had authority over the whole earth, and lost that inheritance. Jesus, as the Son of Man, has the authority to reclaim that inheritance.


When Jesus came into the coasts of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, saying, Whom do men say that I the Son of man am?
And they said, Some [say that thou art] John the Baptist: some, Elias; and others, Jeremias, or one of the prophets.
He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am?
And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God. (Matthew 16:13-16)

But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed [them] all. Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed. (Luke 17:29-30)
