Son of man

(See Scofield “Ezekiel 2:1”) . Our Lord thus designates Himself about eighty times. It is His racial name as the representative Man, in the sense of 1 Corinthians 15:45-47 as Son of David is distinctly his Jewish name, and Son of God His divine name. Our Lord constantly uses this term as implying that his mission (e.g.) ; Matthew 11:19; Luke 19:10. His death and resurrection (e.g.) ; Matthew 12:40; 20:18; 26:2 and His second coming (e.g.); Matthew 24:37-44; Luke 12:40 transcended in scope and result all merely Jewish imitations. When Nathanael confesses him as “King of Israel,” our Lord’s answer is, “Thou shalt see greater things. . . the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of man.” When His messengers are cast out by the Jews, His thought leaps forward to the time when the Son of man shall come, not then to Israel only but to the race; Matthew 10:5,6; 8:23. It is in this name, also, that universal judgment is committed to Him John 5:22,27. It is also a name indicating that in Him is fulfilled the O.T. foreview of blessing through a coming man.
