πŸ‘‘ The Son Of Man

In the four β€œGospel” records, the Lord Jesus Christ refers to Himself about eighty times asΒ β€œthe son of Man”. This title is based upon a passage in Daniel’s prophecy in which β€œdominion, and glory, and a kingdom” are given unto one who appeared as β€œthe Son of Man” (Dan.Β 7:13, 14). This kingdom, says the passage, β€œshall not pass away, and … shall not be destroyed.”

As the term β€œSon of God” speaks of our Lord’s deity and the term β€œSon of David” emphasizes His title as King of Israel, so the term β€œSon of Man” identifies Him as the representative of mankind in general.

It is as β€œSon of Man” that He will reign as King of the world, asΒ β€œKing of kings” as we have seen above. It is also as β€œSon of Man” that He will judge the nations just before His kingdom reign:

β€œWhen the Son of Man shall come in His glory, and all the holy angels with Him, then shall He sit upon the throne of His glory: and before Him will be gathered all nations” (Matt. 25: 31,32).

As Son of man He will also be the Judge at the final judgment at the Great White Throne (Rev. 20:11-15).

β€œFor the Father judgeth no man, but hath committed all judgment unto the Son… because He is the Son of man” (JohnΒ 5:22,27).

Surely God could not be more just in His dealings with mankind. But best of all it is as Son of man that our Lord represented us at Calvary, paying the penalty for our sins that He might deliver us from the judgment to come.Β β€œFor the Son of man came…to give His life a ransom for many” (MarkΒ 10:45). InΒ β€œdue time” the Apostle Paul was raised up to proclaim the glad news that the great Mediator had given HimselfΒ β€œa ransom for ALL” (I Tim. 2:6). source
