There will be wailing and gnashing of teeth. Christians commonly take the phrase "son of man" in this passage to refer to Jesus himself, rather than humanity in general. When Jesus predicts his death.

For He will be delivered to the Gentiles and will be mocked and insulted and spit upon. They will scourge Him and kill Him. And the third day He will rise again. Mark states: He then began to teach them that the Son of man must suffer many things and be rejected by the elders, chief priests and teachers of the law, and that he must be killed and after three days rise again. He spoke plainly about this, and Peter took him aside and began to rebuke him If anyone is ashamed of me and my words in this adulterous and sinful generation, the Son of man will be ashamed of him when he comes in his Father's glory with the holy angels.

Referring to the Second Coming Mark NRSV , Matthew , Luke Those who are ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation, of them the Son of Man will also be ashamed when he comes in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.

Matthew states: But when the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, then he will sit upon his glorious throne. All the nations will be gathered in his presence, and he will separate them as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats.

Johannine literature[ edit ] First page of the Gospel of John from the Tyndale Bible , 16th century The first chapter of the Book of Revelation refers to "one like a Son of man" in Revelation which radiantly stands in glory and speaks to the author. You are the King of Israel!

You will see greater things than these. This passage may be an allusion to Jacob's Ladder. In any case, the implication is that seeing the angels ascending and descending on the "Son of man" i. The increased interest to the Son of man was aroused after Jesus adopted the title for himself and started his ministry.

Apparently, the most obvious reason for Jesus to adopt this term was to protect the secret of the Kingdom17 and delay the conflict with the authorities He also gradually revealed his identity as "the Son of man" who is "the Son of God". Schweizer concludes that "…Jesus deliberately employs this ambiguous title to suggest, although not explicitly to define, his divinely-sent mission to proclaim the presence of the Kingdom and to indicate the relationship of his earthly life and death to its coming.

This midrashic activity of Jewish scribes was paralleled be early Christian authors who turned to Scripture in their missionary and apologetic proclamation…"; John R. He was an ordinary Palestinian Jew in a rural and insignificant area, was connected with the movement of John the Baptist, did miraculous things, practiced a profession of teaching with greatest success ever, gathered a following that turned the world upside down, was executed as a criminal with a weak case against him, his tomb was found empty, and his followers were convinced he was risen from the dead.

This is the Jesus historians know. They also know that "the Son of Man" was Jesus' preferred self-designation; most of New Testament scholars agree with this.

More precisely, contemporary scholars agree that the title "Son of Man" is ascribed to Jesus in all strata of the Gospel tradition Mark, Q, Matthew's and Luke's special material, John ,20 and it is used exclusively as Jesus' self-designation. Ladd points out three distinctive features in the use of the title in the Gospels: First, The Son of Man was Jesus' favorite way to designate himself, and he used the title quite freely.

Second, the title was never used by anyone else to designate Jesus. Third, there is no evidence in Acts or the epistles that the early Church called Jesus the Son of man.

It was not a random pick, but it was not loaded with definite meaning, either. Interestingly, where Jesus admits his messiahship, he affirms that he is the Messiah, but in the Son of man sense. Rev ed. Eerdmans, , Ladd discusses on the Jn. McCown, "Jesus, Son of Man: A Survey of Recent Discussion.

He was the heavenly Messiah of the Son of Man sort.


The title Son of Man occurs 68 times in the Synoptic gospels, and 40 different times when parallels are eliminated. The occurrences can be grouped into three categories with some overlap. This grouping has served as a framework for studies of Jesus, as presented below; this scheme has been accepted and applied widely among the New Testament scholars.

Group A: In this category, the exaltation of the Son of Man is affirmed, or his coming on the clouds of heaven is predicted. This category can be named the "heavenly Son of Man sayings". There are 19 Knox or 16 E. Schweizer occurrences in this group. Group B: This category, the "suffering Son of Man sayings", has to do with the suffering of Jesus, especially with his trial and execution.

There are 10 Knox or 11 Schweizer occurrences in this group. Group C: This category is not so easily distinguishable, and it can be named it accordingly: There are 11 Knox or 13 Schweizer occurrences in this group. The parallel occurrences of the sayings are unimportant, because there is almost no variation in the parallel double or triple appearances of a saying. Rahner confirms: The Son of man —image referred to Jesus' earthly walk class C , suffering class B and parousia class A ; there simply was no logical use for the title after the resurrection and before parousia.

In the meantime, the most appropriate title for Jesus was "the Lord". He was both the suffering servant and will be the divine judge who will come again. Jesus was and is the Son of God, the Lord. Arthur J. Ferch summarizes the history of Christian interpretations of the Son of man before the modern era. The Son of man in Daniel is Jesus, and the text informs us about His second coming. Ferch, The Son of Man in Daniel 7.

Andrews University Press, ; Ferch concentrates in the figure in Dan. In spite of that, this view has been present in Christian theology also. A great volume of works was published during , W. Wrede's The Messianic Secret and A. Schweizer's The Mystery of the Kingdom in the same day in Publications on the topic before the 's34 incorporated subject matters and themes like the Iranian etc.

McCown ends his summary by concluding that the chief causes for the difference of opinion were theological, psychological "sane person Jesus couldn't possibly say this" , and historical presuppositions or assumptions.

Ladd summarizes the discussion on Jesus' Son of man sayings and their interpretation in five distinct types as follows: Among the Jewish writers the first collective interpretation of the Son of Man is from Abraham ibn Ezra ca. Jesus' self-identification with the apocalyptic figure is not authentic; he is an earthly Son of Man only.

Kahlil Gibran - Jesus The Son Of Man

McCown adds that truthful ideas may arise outside of the Hebrew background God's revelation to gentile world, cf. Iranian influence in Enoch , and ideas evolve in time the concept and understanding of the Son of Man between Daniel and the early church. Schweitzer, supported by J. Jeremias, that only eschatological sayings class A are authentic, and Jesus himself expected to be the heavenly Son of man at the end of the age; 3 The view of Bultmann, and followed by many, that only apocalyptic class A sayings are authentic, but Jesus was referring to another apocalyptic figure who will judge people at the end of the age on the basis of their relationship to Jesus; 4 The radical view that rejects all the sayings classes A, B and C as authentic, and attributes them to the Christian community; 5 The position of a few scholars, primarily E.

Schweitzer and M. Black, who argue for earthly Jesus —sayings class C , but are skeptical about the authenticity of the other groups. Scholar's dogmatic considerations and their view of the nature of history decides what one thinks may be true and authentic in the Gospels, closes Ladd. Donahue points out that, on a literary basis, the existence of any pre-Christian expectation of an apocalyptic Son of man who was a messianic figure has been questioned. Similarly, the published fragments of 1 Enoch from Qumran missed the very parts caps.

Most scholars seem to end up dating 1 Enoch to first century A. D; Jackson, The Expositor's Bible Commentary 8, Even Dan. However, after there were no major new original approaches to the subject matter.

The conservatives continued to find their key to the Son of man in the New Testament from the combination of Daniel's and Enoch's divine figure and Isaiah's suffering Servant; a concept that did not exist before Jesus. The other camp Hooker, Perrin proposed an early Christian pesher-type tradition, related to OT images as a rationale for redaction of Jesus' sayings towards the Son of man Christology50 — yet another radical idea that does not sound too convincing. For getting deeper into the issue, one has to turn to the Scriptures.

Why does Matthew use "the Son of man", when Mark and Luke don't? What is the significance of this? While answering these, the overall message of the text will be studied, and some exegetical questions will be addressed and answered. Nonetheless, the main focus is in Matthew The text of the passage goes like this parallel texts in Mk.

Matthew Jesus and the disciples retreated to the area of Caesarea Philippi only Mt. The reason for this was most likely the hectic period of ministry that they had had previously. Caesarea Philippi was more Gentile than Jewish, so at last they could have some rest, prayer included see Luke.

Also, they had a chance to reflect on the decisive issue: The identity of Jesus. Along the way, the crowd and individuals had inquired about Jesus' authority and power. The tentative answer had been "the Messiah? Now Jesus was ready to tackle this politically hot issue with his nearest followers. First he queried the popular opinion of his identity.

When Jesus asks their own opinion, Peter is the first to express their verdict: Jesus is the Messiah Mt. Jesus had not revealed this to the people before for a reason, and even now he warns them not to tell this messianic secret to anyone.

In Matthew, the account is more extensive than in parallel texts, and therefore it contains more material also. The Matthean version incorporates sayings and themes such as: Jesus could not have used the word ekklesia gr. The later writing or translation in Greek was naturally using ekklesia, as it was the typical expression for Christian community later.

However, it is also possible that this was exactly the way the original dialogue took place, even though Mark and Luke are more brief in their narrative. Hades they were visiting — an area with temples and fortresses built of massive cut stones.

Dealing with these issues above would require another study, so we will focus on the study question next: Why does Matthew have "the Son of man" in Jesus' opening question?

This is in line with other Gospels and also parallels the subsequent question in v. Moreover, this reading is even more plausible when taken into account that numerous text variants have the reading "I me , the Son of man" This was a typical way for Jesus to talk about himself, and even typical in the Aramaic use of language. Thus, Mark and Luke who omit the title are basically writing the same thing, only more plainly.

Maybe they did not want to confuse their gentile readers with the ambiguous but virtually redundant here title, especially in this essential passage.

By omitting the title they do convey the point of this dialogue, but at the same time they lose something original that Matthew preserves. With the hypothesis that "Matthew has the most authentic saying in The claims for authenticity and the best originality of the Matthean account of "Peter's confession" but not necessarily of the extra material will gain weight.

If Jesus used the title in the original "Peter's confession" dialogue, it sheds light on parallels in the later verses "the Son of man" — "the Son of the Living God" — "Simon, Bar-Jona" , and might also substantiate authenticity of the extra material in the narrative.

Jesus was not polling about opinions on the Son of man's identity. The "Son of man" figure was not that popular, and maybe there was not any widespread public opinion about the figure; the Son of man was a familiar image to religious leaders. In Jesus' time, Jesus was probably the best know candidate for "the Son of man", at least in his followers' thinking. Jesus was an insightful educator, but here he was not using a teaching trick to facilitate a student-centered learning experience.

He was talking plainly about his identity in a situation where the disciples were already conscious of about his probable messiahship. The theological significance of the Matthean dialogue is in Jesus' initiative to reveal his "Son of man" identity to the closest ones, but still hide it from the wider public. He gave his disciples an explicit confirmation of his messiahship.

From then on, the disciples knew that the Son of man and the Messiah were the same person: This goes back to Psalm 8: For the end, concerning the wine-presses, a Psalm of David. Brenton, L. London: Samuel Bagster and Sons. This is a celebration of this: [Gen , 28 KJV] 26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.

In other words, established in the first chapter of Genesis is that a son of Adam, or "Son of Man" was to have all dominion. In Daniel's vision he sees the Son of Man receiving authority from God: [Dan ESV] 13 "I saw in the night visions, and behold, with the clouds of heaven there came one like a son of man, and he came to the Ancient of Days and was presented before him.

In Hebrews, the author shows that it had to be a human to whom the world would be subjected because Jesus was to be the Captain of a whole new race if you'll excuse the pun.Schweizer concludes that "…Jesus deliberately employs this ambiguous title to suggest, although not explicitly to define, his divinely-sent mission to proclaim the presence of the Kingdom and to indicate the relationship of his earthly life and death to its coming.
