• The prophet Ezekiel is also called the Son of man. (Ezekiel 2:1) What's astonishing, the Son of Man applies to Jesus' humanity and divinity. In other words, the human and the divine are one. John 3:13 "No one has ascended into Heaven except He who descended from Heaven, the Son of Man."
  • God had many "sons" in the bible - Jesus was nothing special in that regard. Jesus in saying he was a son of man is his way of saying he was not divine. Something Paul (the founder of Christianity) forgot to tell his eventual followers
    • No Chance Without Jesus
      Jesus was his ONLY begotten son
  • An expression found about 80 times in the Gospels. It applies to Jesus Christ and shows that by means of his fleshly birth, he became a human and was not simply a spirit creature with a materialized body. The phrase also indicates that Jesus would fulfill the prophecy recorded at Daniel 7:13, 14 Hence he had not simply materialized a human body as angels had previously done; he was not an incarnation but was actually a son of mankind through his human mother. Jesus’ being called the Son of David Matt 1:1; 9:27 emphasizes his being the heir of the Kingdom covenant to be fulfilled in David’s line; his being called the “Son of man” calls attention to his being of the human race by virtue of his fleshly birth; his being called the “Son of God” stresses his being of divine origin, not descended from the sinner Adam.
